Tonight I went to the commencement party of the OpenCamp Dallas. To say that it was a lot of fun would be taking something away from the experience. The SouthWest’s first multi-platform web conference kicked off with a performance by the U.S. Army’s Golden Knights.
If you’re not familiar with the Golden Knights, don’t feel bad. I was only somewhat acquainted with their background going into tonight’s performance. After seeing their skills first hand, I have to say – it’s quite an experience!
I brought my Vado HD along for the ride, and took some video of the performance. I hope you enjoy. Here are the first two parts:
After the jumps, John Pozadzides (one of the big organizers behind OpenCamp Dallas) addressed the assembled crowd:
I talked with John a bit more privately after he addressed everyone as a group (sorry for the quality of video – it got dark pretty quickly, and I didn’t have a light source to help me out):
I also got a chance to speak with the beautiful and talented Cali Lewis while I was there. If you’re not familiar with Cali at all, she’s the talent and drive behind the popular GeekBrief.tv web series that ran for many years, and is now the host of GeekBeat.tv at Revision 3. She made a jump with the Golden Knights yesterday (August 26th if you’re keeping track for some reason), and shared her experience with me:
That’s all for now! Hope you enjoyed the video…I’ll keep you abreast of the fun new things I’m picking up this weekend on Twitter, at the very least. I might have another post before the end of the weekend, too. You never know.
