I am not very good at posting in a timely manner…At the end of February I had some people over for the first Curiosity Compass. This was the description that went out with the Facebook invite:
Myth Lab* presents THE CURIOSITY COMPASS v1.0
What’s on your mind lately? What’s currently inspiring you? Where do you want to go next? What are you working on now?
Come over and give us a taste of what’s got your curiosity compass moving lately. It can be about anything, really. It’ll be Pecha Kucha format which means it’s 20 slides that auto-advance every 20 seconds, so a little under 7 minutes per talk. I swear it’s usually pretty enjoyable!
I’m planning on sharing some stuff. Let me know if you’d be interested in sharing something too and we can load up all the Keynote presentations on one laptop to airplay from. I’m also happy to help with making presentations if you’d like.
Pretty low key, but we’ll have some drinks of course, and I’ll try and get together some food too so let me know if you can make it so I can plan accordingly…
I thought it went fairly well even though there were just 3 of us presenting (7 of us total). Jenny presented about User Personas in UX design and Ben presented about breaking the 4th wall and his experience prototyping game shows in the UK. Both were really great and I was really happy they presented . I talked a bit about an idea that I have been sort of thinking about and marinating over for a few months. After each presentation everyone sort of commented about what we presented. I think I was worried that it might be too small an event but I think the smaller group made it feel more intimate and friendly. We also had lots of wine. That helps.
This is the keynote from what I presented, though it doesn’t make a whole lot of sense without me narrating.. but it will give you an idea of what it was all about.
It was a really nice night. And I definitely plan on doing it again. Perhaps it’s an every other month type of thing though. I also need to iron out the getting people to participate bit as well.
