Media + Communitty -or- FLCreatives Discussion Series

Thu, 10/01/2009 - 07:43 -- rprice

In preparing to plan for a local event in October, namely Bringing Arts and Technology Together (BATT), I went through the process to reserve a space and get a few people involved with the organizational parts.

With some creative googling, I discovered that the presentation was from Ignite Portland, and that someone had videotaped it.
