Woggles from Cub Scouts when Mom was Akela

When my brothers and i were wee lads, our beloved Mom was out cub scout leader. In Canadian (and international) scouting, the leaders of the cub pack are named after characters in Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book. Mom was Akela, Mikki Gladstone was Bagheera, we also had a Baloo and others.

After Mom passed away and the brothers and I were sorting through items, Dan and I assembled a tub of “woggles” which are little sliders designed to hold the kerchief/scarf together around one’s neck. Of course, there is plenty of creativity available for such a device – many are evidenced in this collection.

In this talk, Dave Olson shared how companies can use their community to crowd source projects, bringing passionate users in to mutually benefit both your work and the community members. In this storytelling talk, Challenges, strategies, and successful examples were all shared.”
