Thanks to David Dylan Thomas for sharing this on Facebook.
I attended this fantastic "un-conference" last weekend (which David was at, too, and was one of the conference team members), and I don’t think I could write a better summary myself. This was a little different than some other conferences I went to because it was very casual, and it focused on more media-based content rather than only text-based. I learned about apps like Periscope, learned a little history about podcasting, learned about content within the context of media, and digital hacks to help with work and personal life. I got to spend time with some of my STC-PMC friends, as well as made some new friendship as well. The event was very inexpensive, and I enjoyed being around a lot of creative minds. It helped spark my mind, at least! I enjoyed the event quite a bit, and look forward to attending future events by this group if I can.
If you have something like this in your area, I encourage you to go! You never know what you may learn, or who you may meet.
