The Distributed Distributed Work Meetup

  • May 10, 2010 · 5:00 PM

Because I love a technical challenge and distributed work this meetup is going to be in at least four locations at once! We have some awesome speakers in different locations and we're going broadcast between them.

Because of time zone issues West coast will start with talks and then have mingling later, while east coast will start with mingling and end with talks.

As usual we have a set of speakers that I really respect and I'm very excited to hear from, and as usual, they cover a range of business, art, academic and social issues around distributed work/crowdsourcing.

We also have Jeff Howe speaking - the Wired writer who coined the term "crowdsourcing".

Speakers:
Brent Frei, CEO SmartSheet, Author of Paid Crowdsourcing
Fred Benenson, Kickstarter, Translated Moby Dick into Emoji using Mechancial Turk
Alek Felstiner, Berkeley Law (Boalt)
Jeff Howe, Harvard

    The meeting was extremely interesting. The audio didn't work, so we had a "not so much Distributed Distributed Work meetup" (c)Chris. The beer and mingling played substitute for the first talks. I very much hope the talks and discussions were recorded, because ours was so interesting.

    I'm thinking of heading to either San Fran or Boston... does anyone who organizes or who's been to these previously have any suggestions?

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
