Since we do distributed work, why not have a distributed meetup? This time we’re making our meetup even more accessible by holding it simultaneously in Boston, New York, San Francisco and Seattle. As usual, we have a set of speakers covering a wide range of topics that I’m really excited to hear.
Fred Benenson will be in New York. He does so much cool stuff it’s hard to know what he’ll be talking about – he works at Kickstarter, a crowdfunding company, and he translated Moby Dick into Emoji using Mechanical Turk.
Jeff Howe will be in Boston. He’s the guy that coined the term “crowdsourcing” and he’ll be talking about some new stuff that he’s working on.
Brent Frei will be in Seattle. He’s the CEO of SmartSheet and is one of the smartest people I’ve met when it comes to the business of paid crowdsourcing. He wrote a fantastic and comprehensive research report on the industry.
Alek Felstiner will be in San Francisco. He used to work at a union, now he’s at Berkeley Law School and he will be talking about his research on how this emerging industry is likely to be regulated.
I’m really looking forward to this one – please RSVP at http://www.meetup.com/Distributed-Work/calendar/13300733/ so we can try and anticipate the number of people.
