As I mentioned before, this is one of the best events in the city. This time it sold out two days before the show. I had many friends who could not make it out.

It took me two beers before I loosened up. When I was standing on stage it was soo dark that the crowd just looked like a dark void, this made things a lot easier. I felt our presentation went pretty well, I was really happy that I didn't make up any new words during the presentation (I am known to do that). I had such a fun time and the other presenters were absolutely amazing. I felt very lucky to be sitting with such incredible local talent. Everyone was great but my favorites include Kelly Deck - Kelly Deck Design, Jeff Topham's story about his family from Liberia and Rex Weyler who talked about the early days of Greenpeace.

Bob from Vancouverisawesome.com put up the video of our Pecha Kucha presentation. Check it out, and if you missed this one, make sure you catch the next one.

Great stuff Matt! And nice to meet you too. The whole night was great. One of the best parts for me that seemed to symbolize the whole spirit of the event was running into an old friend there who had just moved back to Vancouver after a graphic design stint in San Francisco, and discovering that she just moved into a building right next door to mine. An incredible event that I'll definitely go to again.
