1. Creative Mornings is a FREE morning lecture series where professionals in various creative fields speak on all sorts of topics. The series was started by Tina Roth Eisenberg (swiss-miss.com), an uber-blogger and designer in NY. There are now over 18 chapters all over the world. Learn more at creativemornings.com.

    This is a short promo I made for them since Tina was here in person to attend the Creative Mornings Atlanta presentation by MailChimp CEO Ben Chestnut.

    Credits:
    Produced by daredreamer.net.

    Some video footage was shot by the respective filmmakers in the Creative Mornings cities besides Atlanta (Particularly at 0:35 to 0:41 where you see the grid of other CM presentations and the SF presentation of Mike Monteiro). For the creation of this general CM promo, I thought it important to grab clips from other presentations. Therefore, I took my footage from the two Atlanta presentations I've shot (Rick Anwyl and Ben Chestnut) and combined them with short clips from CM videos for Seattle, NY, Zurich, Berlin, and San Francisco. Go to the Creative Mornings website for links to video presentations of those respective cities.

  2. The FingerReader is a wearable device that assists in reading printed text. It is a tool both for visually impaired people that require help with accessing printed text, as well as an aid for language translation. Wearers scan a text line with their finger and receive an audio feedback of the words and a haptic feedback of the layout: start and end of line, new line, and other cues. The FingerReader algorithm knows to detect and give feedback when the user veers away from the baseline of the text, and helps them maintain a straight scanning motion within the line. fluid.media.mit.edu/projects/fingerreader

  5. SHINE is a collaborative film project produced by BIZNIK.com, an online networking community for micro business owners and solopreneurs. The project began on May 6, 2009 when 12 video crews and over 400 entrepreneurs gathered in Seattle’s largest film production studio to share why they work long hours, for low pay, facing great uncertainty.

    The film combines compelling stories from the event, and interviews with academics, celebrated researchers (like Scott Shane author of Illusions of Entrepreneurship), and entrepreneurial superlatives (like Bruce Livingstone, founder of iStockphoto, acquired by Getty Images for $50M).

    The result presents the larger story about entrepreneurship in an economy where 90 percent of all new jobs are created by small, entrepreneur-driven businesses.

    View SHINE with an audience at a SHINE On event and discuss the themes with others who share the satisfaction of following your passion. The first SHINE On events are being held in Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles, St. Louis and Boston: biznik.com/SHINE/Shine_on.
