Ron Daniels talk 084

Massive thanks to Ron Daniels for his talk “The Organic Entrepreneur” at kwartzlab tonight in the Monetizing the Making series (‘cause it went well, so let’s call it a series).  You really went above and beyond for us Ron with a great slide deck and lots of solid insights and advice combining the technical and business aspects.

Shouts to my helpers too: Ben cleaned the kitchen, Don/Bevan/Paul/? moving tables, EdM/Darcy/Andrew for extra chairs, Darcy for working the door, Rob/Mark for A/V, JB for additional pics, ______ who I missed, and the whole crew that helped reassemble the room afterward.  Much appreciated, guys.
