Michael Foley is one of those people that everyone loves to stop and talk with. We’re very grateful for that fact, since he managed to interview many of the movers and shakers who attended Gnomedex last month. Michael was kind enough to give us his raw footage, and Uncle John worked his magic to stitch it all together. Ladies and germs, meet the people of Gnomedex!

  • Tac Anderson – “The most diverse and coolest group of speakers anywhere.”
  • Steve Sorbo – “Gnomedex is about education in the world of social media.”
  • Christopher Burgess – “I come to Gnomedex because out of hundreds of conferences I attend, this is the best .It’s the most humanitarian and technological event of its kind. When you leave here, you feel as though you can change the world.”
  • Kristen Mitchell – “Gnomedex was the first conference I ever attended in association with my online identity. I was happy to feel as though I was amongst family.”
  • Kat Armstrong – “It’s impossible to put into words what Gnomedex is like. Being here – being a part of this – WILL change your life in some way.”
  • Brian Eisenberg – “I come to Gnomedex to meet people and have amazing conversations.”
  • Kenji Onozawa – “Gnomedex has great content, but I love the conversation in the hallways the most. This event attracts an awesome array of people.”
  • Jeff Shuey – “There are incredible people involved in this event, from speakers to volunteers to attendees.”
  • Jeris JC Miller – “Chris has done an amazing job at curating who I feel are some of the most innovative speakers in technology and the social media space.”
  • Pete Voss – “This was my first Gnomedex. A lot of past attendees recommended I be here, so here I am!”
  • Veronica Wei Sopher – “I come here to get outside of my own thinking. I love to see what others are doing and learning. It gives me fresh perspective in my world.”
  • Jamie Nelson – “I come here to find out what’s going on in the geek world, and get an idea as to what is coming over the horizon.”
  • David Hoang – “This was my first time attending Gnomedex. I wanted to be here, because I heard it’s a great place to meet innovative thinkers.”
  • Lacy Kemp – “This conference has a very cool crowd. It’s very different from other conferences – it’s more human. The content is different. It’s less focused on narcissism and more focused on how to create a better you.”
  • Michelle Gamboa – “I volunteer at this event because it’s one of the places that I can meet amazing people and hear about the best ideas you’ll find anywhere.”
  • Richard Wood – “This was my first Gnomedex. I’ve been to a lot of events surrounding this event in the past few years. There’s always such a high amount of energy to the people involved in this conference. I wanted to be a part of that, and their ideas.”
  • Melissa Tizon – “I work with Swedish Hospital here in Seattle. We’re a non-profit hospital which loves technology. We’re using that to improve health care in the greater Seattle area.”
  • Kevin Urie – “I come to Gnomedex because the people are great and the topics are all over the place. It’s always interesting, and I learn something from everyone.”
  • Jen Joyce – “I come to Gnomedex because there are interesting people who attend. I love to learn new ideas from everyone.”
  • Heather Fernandez – “I’m here because I’ve never been. I’ve heard a lot of great things about this conference, so I knew I had to be here.”
  • Willow Brugh – “This was my first Gnomedex, and it’s been exciting. It’s not focused on one topic, and this is where true innovation lies.”
  • Joe Pirillo – “I’m Chris’ Dad, so I’m here to help out behind the scenes, but I also really just enjoy being here.”
  • Karianne Stinson – “Gnomedex is a conference where people talk about what they’re actually DOING, versus people telling about their grand ideas.”
  • Shauna Causey – “I love to hang out with geeks because I am a wannabe geek. Gnomedex rocks for that.”
  • Greg Young – “Television is moving more online every day. I like to keep up with current trends to see how new things can be incorporated into video and television.”
  • Liana Shanes – “I volunteer with Gnomedex because Chris always brings amazing content which helps me learn about things I would never have thought of before.”
  • Maya Bisineer – “The people here are brilliant, and the presentations are all intelligent.”
  • Ken Yeung – “There are a lot of friends here at Gnomedex.”
  • Chris Pirillo – “I come here because my face is on all of the badges! I put this conference on because it started out as just a way for my community to get together. This is a chance, though, to inspire others no matter what type of work they do, or where their passions lie. The idea of Human Circuitry is that our humanity is further influenced by the proliferation of technology.”

Thank you again to Michael and Uncle John for all of their hard work putting this together. Thank you to everyone who participated!

How to Synchronize and Coordinate Schedules http://chris.pirillo.com/2009/08/10/how-to-synchronize-and-coordinate-schedules/ Mon, 10 Aug 2009 16:33:20 +0000 http://chris.pirillo.com/?p=14142 Continue reading How to Synchronize and Coordinate Schedules ]]>

On an average morning, I wake up and check my email. Then I worry about going about the rest of my day. There are many times when I need to coordinate my schedule in order to accommodate other people and meetings. I can never get anywhere with schedules, because I end up with an email thread that is 14 pages long! Have you ever noticed how some people are insanely focused on setting up a phone call to talk about something you could have already covered in an email? When it comes to coordinating schedules and getting people on the same page, you may want to Doodle!

Doodle is a free service that you don’t even have to sign up for! Use it to schedule an event, such as a meeting, business lunch, conference call or even a family reunion. Create a poll with your choices, and email out your link. Then, watch as the votes come in so that you can choose the best time for everyone!

You can also use Doodle to choose what movie to see, or find the newest hot restaurant to visit. You can use Doodle with your calendar (Outlook, iCal, etc), on Facebook, or even from your mobile device.

Doodle may not be a drawing service, but it certainly does make it much easier (and more fun!) to get something scheduled.

Mark Day and Me http://chris.pirillo.com/2008/12/22/mark-day-and-me/ http://chris.pirillo.com/2008/12/22/mark-day-and-me/#comments Tue, 23 Dec 2008 07:28:37 +0000 http://chris.pirillo.com/2008/12/22/mark-day-and-me/ Continue reading Mark Day and Me ]]> Mark Day and Me

I met Mark Day at the YouTube Live event a few weeks ago. I was shocked to discover that he recognized me, too!

He asked permission to Flip me off – a request that I was more than happy to oblige. I wasn’t quite sure what he was doing when he started to spin around me, but apparently I have my own laws of gravity? I was using my new Flip Mino HD (with less-than-impressive results).

I’m beginning to think there’s no such thing as the perfect, high quality pocket camcorder (especially in the “high definition” variety. No matter, Mark wound up shooting this with a regular Flip Mino, and wow… it came out extremely pixelated. Still, I can brag to all my friends that Mark Day shot me!
