We’re happy to put online one of our panels from Intervention 2013: “Revenue Streams, How to Make Ten Tenths of a Living”. This panel was comprised of our guests Mark Frauenfelder, Paul Sabourin, Nicole Dieker, and Steven Archer.
Note: We try to make as much of our content available online after each event as possible, but with limited resources we don’t always have the ability to adequately capture our panels and workshops. If you want to contribute to our efforts please consider donating to the event, or adding an Enabler level to your registration.
OK, you have until just 1 week from this Thursday to get your room
and register for Intervention 5.
Programming should be posted this week. Many people who rock art, marketing, and tech will be sharing their knowledge. We are going to make this year the best one yet!
To give you a preview, here is a draft of one of my talks:
Oni’s Secrets to Real Marketing for Real People:
Oni Hartstein has been making art since 2003 and blogging since 2006. Her blog has over 6000 unique readers per day and is well-known for it’s excellent coverage of haunted attractions. From this platform she designed, built, and manages both InterventionCon and (Re)Generation Who from the ground up. She’s been featured on Wired, The Washington Post, CNN, and a ton of other places. During the day she manages over 3 million dollars in marketing campaigns – a job she got because of the first part of this paragraph.
This is an informal discussion where she talks about everything she did to get to where she is and how you can use the same techniques on your own business. There will be no buzzwords or scenarios that you have to be a lucky fairy princess to achieve. Real Talk. Nothing is held back. Attendees OF THIS PANEL ONLY can book a 10 minute Q&A to get feedback and pointers about your specific small business needs at any time by signing up at con ops. Spaces are limited. Yes it’s free because you already paid to get into the con. Thank you for that. You rock. You are why we can offer this.
You don’t need to be a shirt-and-tie wearing adult working in some boring studio to produce awesome animation.
Some of Intervention’s kiddie guests spent time with Eric Hardenbrook of our Children’s Programming Room to produce a stop-motion animation segment for the convention. A peaceful street bustling with activity is suddenly overrun with–what else?–the Sharknado in this latest stop-motion classic.
Check out the results of Sharknado at Intervention!
Fans of Munchkin, Magic: The Gathering, and Dungeons & Dragons are all free to converge in Intervention’s official tabletop gaming library.
Room runners Chuck and Bean will constantly be on hand to offer assistance on any card or tabletop game of your choice. Over 100+ titles and accessories are available for rent or purchase.
A schedule of events for the duration of the weekend will be posted in the room and will be continuously updated.
The Intervention Video Game Room is now open…and it will be a nonstop cavalcade of gaming throughout the weekend.
Nestled in the Roosevelt Room just steps from the Vendors’ Area and panels rooms, Sarah and Pete of GameHorde have been appearing at Intervention since the beginning. They have been very generous to share their personal collection of video game titles and consoles with the guests of the convention.
All of your favorites are represented, including Xbox360, Playstation 3, and even the new open-sourced gaming console Ouya. Old school gamers will be happy to re-familiarize themselves with the likes of Super NES and the first Playstation. Additionally, the Rock Band setup is one of the very first professional kits ever made.
Oh, and there’s this:
Yes, kids, that is a Commodore 64. Well before even the first Nintendo was released, such systems were what video game enthusiasts of the early 1980s were stuck with.
GameHorde is offering unlimited play of over 175 different titles. Additionally, they have a slew of tournaments set up for the weekend, kicking off today at 5PM with Rock Band. Fruit Ninja, Super Smash Bros. (naturally), and BombSquad will also feature tournament play.
Finally–and not for the faint of heart–try your hand at Halo Midnight Madness. Beginning promptly at midnight tonight, see how long you can go in unlimited Halo. The tournament will not end until the last person has dropped.
