Message from The Icarus Sessions (organized by Seth Godin):

The Icarus Sessions are a challenging new way to bring your art forward. Not to make a sales pitch, not to get customers or patrons, but to find the courage to stand up and say, "here, I made this."

A presentation at an Icarus Session is 140 seconds long. You can go shorter, but not a second longer. You can use slides, or handouts, or even better, just bring your enthusiasm. Videotape it if you like.

The assignment: Tell the group about your art. What have you created? What frightened you? What matters?

Check out the principles of the Icarus Session before you come: http://www.squidoo.com/IcarusSession and be sure to contact the organizer if you're hoping to speak.

    343 towns, villages and cities are signed up so far for the first Icarus Session.

    The challenge now is for every person who is signed up to find two friends or colleagues to sign up as well... time to whisper and get the word out.

    Thanks!

      Seth is such a genius. I woke up this morning and realized I could start a meetup on my own world-changing book, 8 to Great! So grateful for him!!!

    Villa Medici is a gated community. The gates will be open when you arrive and will automatically open as you leave. Take 95th to Rosewood, then Villa medici is the next right. Go straight ahead to ASH St. , turn left and 9526 is the first building on your right. It's the only apt on the main floor. I'll have coffee and a fire. Bring your Seth books, your biz cards and a chair! = )

    I have a big carpeted room and a fireplace. I do not have chairs because we're moving out of the space. If everyone wants to bring their own chair or pillow, my room can accomodate 30 very easily. I'll put on the coffee and a log on the fire. Let me know by noon today please.

    Would any of you be interested in attending the KC Icarus Session? Both the KC and OP sessions are relatively small in number, how about merging?

      I"ve got a conflict next Wed and not likely to make either session. I'm bummed about that because I was really looking forward to participating. If there is a follow-up session at some point, I would like to be a part of it. If something changes on my schedule next Wed, then I am fine with a merged group.
