My favorite thing about the last meetup was that it gave me an excuse to invite people from around the country whose work I admired and meet them in person. This meetup is no different: we have four awesome speakers all of whom I’ve been a huge fan of for a long time:
- Aaron Koblin, a local artist, who created The Sheep Market, Bicycle Built for Two Thousand and Ten Thousand Cents projects.
- Leila Janah, a social entrepreneur who runs Samasource, our fantastic non-profit partner.
- Sharon Chiarella, VP at Amazon in charge of Mechanical Turk.
- Panos Ipeirotis NYU Stern school professor who writes one of my favorite blogs on crowdsourcing and Mechanical Turk.
The doors open at 6 and we’ll start the talks at 7.
Note that this time we’re having it at our partner Samasource’s office at 972 Mission St, Ste 500 in downtown San Francisco.
We are really looking forward to meeting everyone. Please RSVP on our meetup group so that we can get an accurate headcount. Many people have requested a live stream – you should be able to access our feed at http://justin.tv/crowdflower.
