Learn about making the invisible space around you and your attendees come to life during my campfire sessions about augmented reality at WEC (Sunday, Aug. 3 @ 11:15 a.m.; Monday, Aug. 4 @ 2:30 p.m.).

The Sunday session is especially convenient: it immediately follows Atari co-founder Nolan Bushnell, so you should already be in the room :)

And since the WEC app is now available (http://www.mpiweb.org/Events/wec2014/information/mobile-app), you can easily add one or both of my sessions to your schedule.

Let me know if there are any specific elements of augmented reality that you're most interested in learning about...or just show up and be ready to chat as we build upon the infrastructure for a new form of time travel.

I have SO much more to share on this topic, too! Wish we had space to get into bitcoins and more. But this is a nice start for meeting pros, I think...consider these new, alternative funding streams and you can do a lot more, including greater engagement...real engagement.

Fell free to ask me any questions on this topic, I'd love to talk more about it.
 
Latest issue of MPI's Meeting Professional magazine includes an especially interesting article on "crowdfunding" your event - starting on page 84:
"MOBILIZING THE MASSES to finance a project, usually in exchange for various perks or gifts—crowdfunding—is a rapidly growing 
strategy to boost budgets and grow engagement��."
Whether you are seeking a budgetary bump or starting from scratch, the possibilities for crowdfunding your events are practically limitless.

Wow... just blown away by an obscure Abilene country LP by the Pringles from 1982. Amazing songwriting!

Looks like the man behind the album is now a UPS driver.

+Eric Betancourt I've tried PA and several others...most of the others in fact kangs of CM. Now I'm running Albinoman's form of CM 10.2.

As long as CM doesn't charge for access to their ROMs and updates, I'm fine with them charging for tools that make it easier for stupid people to root and install ROMs.
