Help me Present at the Threadless Meetup
Hello, people of the forum! Are you going to the Threadless Meetup (formerly the Threadless Meat Cup) in September? If so, definitely read this. If not, you should still read it. Okay?
I'm Ray Fenwick, and I'll be presenting (and doing a workshop) at the Meetup.
Without your help, however, my presentation will be nothing more than a series of blank slides with soft mumbling. Without your help, I will have nothing, and I'll be forced to crouch behind a chair and wait until everybody leaves. And leave you will, because I'm really awkward to be around when I'm whimper-crying.
I need your help, because I've decided to make this a presentation a la Threadless by letting the people (you, also you) influence what happens.
Democracy! To a point!
My plan is to base my entire presentation on questions submitted by you. Any question you can think of. As many as you like. You know the Q and A sessions that are usually at the end of a talk? What I want to do here is take the questions beforehand, then build a nice illustrated talk around them. The question can be super serious, or ape-sh*t bananas. Whatever you're curious about. I'm going to leave that open so that I don't lead you in any way.
So to re-iterate, I need your questions. If you've never seen my work—I'm sure that'll be the case for most of you—take a look at my stuff at the websites below. Then fire off some questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. Put MEETUP TALK as the subject line!
I'll take the best ones, as many as I can, and then mush them all together into a big ball of presentation. It might just work. This whole semi-democracy thing seems to have worked out for Threadless, so who knows? :)
The deadline is Friday, August 27th. I hope you're down for this.
