I had the great pleasure of attending LeanCamp NYC at General Assembly, February 18, 2012. I met a bunch of great people and shared this case study about Knowsy, a project I did with the Innovation Games Company in Mt. View Ca.
Balconf: Hybrid User Interviews

Ignite: Lean Startup “I (heart) ugly”
Back in June, I was invited to participate in a session of Ignite: Lean Startup at Pivotal Labs NYC. I gave a short talk about working quickly at low fidelity to help teams create a shared vision, illustrated with some examples from the Knowsy project I worked on with Innovation Games Online.
Ignite is a short-form presentation format similar to pecha-kucha. Speakers are allowed just 20 slides which advance at 20 seconds each, whether you’re ready or not. The format encourages you to be brief, memorable and funny if you can manage it. If you want a challenge to your presentation skills, I recommend the format!
