BitSummit MMXIV

From the minute the lights came up at the end of the inaugural BitSummit—a humble but ultimately successful effort—we immediately took the enthusiasm and feedback and support gathered from the first event and set our sights on creating an even better follow-up for 2014. Many of the indie teams who joined us for BitSummit MMXIII have already experienced exciting new levels of collaboration and success over the past year. Simply speaking, BitSummit is having an effect, and we want to build on that momentum. For BitSummit MMXIV (March 7-9) we’ve expanded the size, the length, and the quality, with three days worth of guest speakers and musical guests, combined together in an event unlike anything ever seen.

Building community... one PechaKucha Night at a time

In a rugged town where passersby only capture franchise offerings on the highway strip, a thoughtful community of thinkers, builders, makers, creators and dreamers reside. They come together every four months to share, listen, question and celebrate at PechaKucha Nights at the local performing arts theatre. Volunteers run the cash bar, complimentary snacks are provided, the lights are dimmed and a DJ sets the mood. We meet the inspirational, courageous, determined and soulful folks who open their hearts and minds. If this is connects with you, please join us for PechaKucha #3.
