    Sorry to comment off topic but I'm creating a NYC hip hop and skateboard block party to raise cryptocurrency (like Bitcoin) awareness. I'm looking for volunteers to join the project and I know tech and creative folk have the right type of mind set for this. Contact me at [masked] to discuss.

    A++. The dynamics of quizzes, how to create them in existing editorial workflows, accuracy vs. fun...this is a great media topic worth more exploration/debate, and would actually be entertaining.

    Will you all be able to post slides/video? I love quiz design but definitely can't make today :).
