Digital (+Life) Hacks Lightning RoundsContent Camp + PodCamp Philly 2015
In the spirit of the day, were here to collaborate.
To share some things with each other that we can all take with us.
Some things you might know already.
Some things you wont.
But we can all learn a little something from each other.
While I tell you MY ideas + tips, please brainstorm 1 of your own.
Anything you share will be added to the presentation.
And Ill post the deck to my blog + tweet it out today.
So to think about while we go:
What makes YOUR life easier?
What is one of your secrets to success, something people might not have tried?
What did you just discover and have been telling everyone about?
Or...what do *you* do that you wonder why everyone else does it wrong?
Get it done.

Nearly 10 years later, the actual number might be twice that. Well, if you remove a few zeros, that is.
