Remarks

From Technical Bent: SXSW Quick Hits: Day 1 and 2

My favorite panel of the fest thus far…It was the presentation style that was brilliant. Dressed in character. Tying every aspect back to that Mark Twain reference. Great physical visuals that you could pass around. It was a showcase example of a solo talk.

From Darrell Jursa: Thoughts from SXSW: Crowdsourcing Lessons from Tom Sawyer

In Dave’s trademark fashion, he walked us through each story, using audience motivation and end benefit as pillars to ground us in the “why” audiences participated, and continue to participate in these efforts. He was able to talk about what we usually call “process” as a storyteller, imparting wisdom based on actual experience.

From Adam Leiter: Tom Sawyer Goes Social – HootSuite’s Crowdsourcing Insights

I keep comingback to the talk that Dave Olson from Hootsuite gave…we’ve followed a number of the rules that Dave Olson touted in his session: Thank people, make it fun for them, give them an incentive (not monetary), make it easy for them to participate.
