Digital Shorts

Digital Shorts will take place in Room 132 at 12:30 on Saturday.

Known in some corners as “lightning talks,” Digital Shorts (aka “Dork Shorts”) are brief (2-minute or 3-minute) presentations in which attendees discuss current or upcoming projects, demonstrate new tools, or call for collaborators. Like most of THATCamp, Digital Shorts are meant to be as informal as possible. Although the concept might be unfamiliar to new THATCampers, veterans think it’s one of the most fun and useful parts of each meeting: Digital Shorts let you learn a lot in a little bit of time.

Not sure what to expect? Here’s a video of the digital shorts session at another THATCamp.

    Again, I’m just finding new ways to push my thinking about the city space, especially as it relates to public transportation and how things are seemingly evened out – for a moment.
