Dragon*ConTV Presentation at Digital Atlanta

I had the opportunity to talk to Digital Atlanta 2012 about the work I’ve done with Dragon*ConTV over the past ten years. My presentation (“The Accidental Community: Ten Years of Dragon*ConTV“) ties the history of this video production group into Dragon*Con and the growth of social media.

I had planned to post a recording of the presentation, but the audio didn’t turn out well (bad cable connection, lots of noise). The presentation materials are posted on Prezi, but I’m also posting a full script with links to the videos I used in the presentation (starts after the break).

Thanks to everyone who attended. Feel free to leave a comment if you have any questions.

There were zombies storming my house. Well, not my actual house, but whatever my dream created as an acceptable substitute for my house (it wasn’t a 100% match, but it had a nice basement). The bulk of the dream was gathering my friends together to barricade ourselves in, block doors and try to figure out why we only have one single-barrel shotgun in the house.

I know it should be nice to have a dream where your friends and coworkers come together for a common goal, but this is a bit surreal

And no … none of the zombies were carrying guitars. It wasn’t unreasonable, nobody was going to eat my eyes 🙂
