The Lean Startup Conference Video
For those who missed it, It’s never too late to organize a time delay event...
A few notes: Because the live event started a few minutes late, all you'll see is the slide for the first 4:16 minutes. But then you'll see Eric and Sarah kicking off the conference. The video is broken into four smaller videos. The one starting with Eric and Sarah is "Early Morning." If you look at the pane at right, it's at the very bottom. When the first video ends, it will buffer and then flow into video two: "Late Morning," which is the one with a bright green car or something in the pane at right. Then you flow into video three, "Early Afternoon" (recorded Mon 2:22pm) and finally "Late Afternoon" (recorded Mon at 4:16pm). If you want to jump ahead in the video, click the appropriate pane.
Startup Communities - Get Social
Brad Feld added his book, "Startup Communities," to a new social reading platform, BookShout!
You can see his notes, leave your own comments, ask questions, and interact with him and others. It's like Twitter inside the book. Here's how you join in:
1. Sign up at www.bookshout.com
2. Email Corey Evans at email@example.com and he’ll put a FREE copy of "Startup Communities" on your shelf. (FREE limited to first 50)
Easy enough, right? Once you sign up and get the book on the web, you can also download the BookShout! app to your Apple or Android devices to read on the go.
Make notes, share with friends, interact, and get the news out about this great opportunity to share ideas and collaborate.
