“Are you Worthy?” Personal Publishing from Greeks to Geeks spiel (video)

My WordCamp Whistler co-conspiritor, photographerKris Krug , shot video of my entire “Are you Worthy?” spiel with his new Flipcam and posted it in a YouTube playlist in 5 segments for your viewing convenience – in 2009 (when Youtube had a 10 minute limit). Meanwhile in 2018, I’ve stitched the bits together into one video for your viewing amusement.

Sure, there are gaps jumps… there is also any audio version and a roundup post with Tweets, blogs etc, plus a collection of the items in my suitcase of mystery and even a transcription of the spiel.

Collection: Hitch-hiking signs (variety, North America)

Surviving artifacts from various hitch-hiking journeys around USA/ Canada, circa 1989-1994. Annotations as recollected. Note: many more of these signs existed but are lost to the world as ephemeral creations.

Take us to the White House - used from South Carolina northwards toward Rhode Island, Oct. 1990 (bad idea)

“Things I Learned While Hitchhiking” from Pecha Kucha Night, Whistler

You may know, I’ve participated in “Pecha Kucha  20×20” speaking series several times in Vancouver, including in April of 2010 – Apparently Pecha Kucha is pronounced anyway you choose, April of 2011 – Stories from Japan ~ Inspiration in 20 seconds at Pecha Kucha Vancouver – and an all-star edition in February of 2012 – Vancouver Cultural Anecdotes for Pecha Kucha All-Star Vancouver, Leap Day 2012.

I also had the thrill of heading up the road to Pecha Kucha Whistler in April of 2012. Check out this just-released version of my talk and slideshow where I show 20 slides for 20 seconds each and share my views on art, being a creator, and sharing with an audience:

Dave O at Pecha Kucha Whistler

Here’s the intro excerpt for my presentation:

Writer Dave Olson speaks about his personal experiences, explaining his view on art, and how to be a successful creator. He shares his opinions on how to develop and maintain a personal vision, and examines the space where vision and audience intersect.

If my prezo brought you any inspiration at all feel free to give it an applause or share it with your social networks.

A special thanks to Aki Kaltenbach for making it all happen. Read Aki’s blogpost – Six things I’ve learned from Pechakucha night  – to find out more about what Pecha Kucha events are all about.
