“Fck Stats, Make Art” shodo series

Sometimes following &/or at least remembering your own advice, is the best advice

Also, slowing down enough to remember the advice, ergo:

Each one unique (like you)

Unlike your children, you can choose favorites – do you have a favorite?

Now I wonder… What shall I do with these? Oh I, wonder.

PS “Fck Stats, Make Art” was title of a presentation/manifesto I spieled at Northern Voice 2008 & SxSW 2009 (in various forms) #evidence

Fck Stats, Make Art at SxSW09 flashback

Fck Stats, Make Art at SxSW, March 13, 2009 was a big day for me speaking to a load of my pals and smart/interesting folks at the big crazy con-fab. Where i really dialed in my schtick with the old-timey suitcase fulla treats and “paper point” collages to direct the story.

That night, saw Black Angels rock Psychedelic fest, had a sip of whiskey and a lil puff o something with them afterwards. Met the marvellous queen of Austin Kim Eitze, rode in a magic pedi-cab and rode that good vibe through days of hi-jinks leading to the next few years of rocking so many speakings gigs including TedX, Pecha Kucha x4, Northern Voice, Assoc of Alt Newspapers, and a return to SxSW for “Crowd Sourcing Projects like Tom Sawyer“.

Anyhow, always more to say but came here to share a roundup of the Fck Stats Make Art gig with a buncha snaps, tweets, blogs and whatnot. I have a great hat from David White and a best shirt ever and of course a smoking jacket and pipe cause im not a savage.

Published on Apr 23, 2014

“Tom Sawyer famously talked his gang into paying him for the privilege of painting a fence white while he sat by and supervised. 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.”

Artifacts from a talk by Dave Olson at SXSWi 2012 called “Crowd Sourcing Community Projects the Tom Sawyer way.

Crowd sourcing project examples include:

* True North Media House, a citizen media-making campaign during Vancouver Winter Olympics 2010

* Hootsuite international translation project, which made the popular social media tool available in over a dozen languages including Arabis and Polish

* Phones for Fearless campaign, a project which collection un/used camera phones to redistribute to poor/homeless residents of Vancouver’s DTES

Additionally, the artifacts, created from recycled board games and collage art, also explore motivations for participation.
