We appreciated the support from attendees and from our sponsors of the event: Miller Meiers, mBLAST, ManageFlitter, Klout, The Lawrence Chamber of Commerce, Small Town #140conf, and Kansas Credit Union Association.
We were also extremely grateful for the on-site tech support provided by Dave Greenbaum of DoctorDave™ Computer Repair. Wifi has always been a real concern to us and can easily become an issue when a large group connect to a venue’s network. It’s something we always talk to venues about very specifically to ensure they are prepared, and sometimes despite the very best preparation the network still proves unable to cope once everyone connects. We’re very grateful to Dave for all his on-site support and for keeping us up and running. We’re also grateful to Knology of Kansas for the extra bandwidth and to Lawrence Freenet for going out of their way to step up and provide an entire backup network.
An unexpected lesson was also learned – at future events we’ll be asking attendees not to create Mifi hotspots. We found that Mifi signals competed with the onsite wifi and actually blocked the signal to the laptop Peter was presenting from. First time we’ve experienced that issue, though apparently it’s becoming more of an issue, even affecting Steve Jobs during his presentation at the Worldwide Developers Conference.
Thanks again to everyone who attended and supported the event. Next for Social: IRL:
