“Go the Fuck Home” – my Ignite talk

I’m very pleased with how it went. Ignite Philly was a ton of fun, had a bunch of great speakers, wonderful organizers, a great venue, and of course a lovely enthusiastic crowd. Thanks, all.

If anything, I’m bummed I kind of botched explaining diminishing returns (less effective per unit after a point, not ‘over time’).

THANKS to my friend Mjumbe for being awesome and filming this for me.

    I have watched this Ignite talk a number of times and actually modeled my talk on GIS for Flood Response after yours (clean work language though), thanks for being awesome 🙂
