    Jeffrey Hayzlett’s Running The Gauntlet is a rough-and-tumble guide for running and driving change through the business gauntlet. In this keynote, Hayzlett addresses what every business leader must face: Getting Ready, Getting Going, and Creating and Sustaining Momentum. Hayzlett shows business leaders and owners how to develop the necessary mental, emotional, and physical toughness they must have for smart, strategic, and lasting change. Hayzlett forces leaders to really get up in their own businesses – to take them over from the inside and drive change – gaining customers and profits in the process. Hayzlett motivates and leads attendees to be able to efficiently assess what kind of change their business needs and then summon the vision, courage, and passion to enact it.

    The world of books has gone rogue. E-books, self-publishing, collaborative authoring, audience-involved authoring…The publishing landscape is a crazy Wonderland, and Saskatoon's own Indie Ink Publishing is part of it all, launching its (and we think Saskatchewan's?!) first interactive book app right here at MOSO! A collaborative project with the University of Saskatchewan and MITACS, this digital rendering of Indie’s softcover title The New Rockstar Philosophy: A Guerrilla Blueprint for Digitally Conscious Artists takes you down the rabbit hole. In this special session, project leader, Indie Ink founder & Creativity Catalyst Suzanne Paschall leads with an introductory exploration of "futurebooks," and dives into the live demo and launch of Indie's first interactive app experiment with developer Flavio Ishii. Indie’s Marketing Director Megan Evans wraps it up by interviewing a panel of the project team about how the project evolved, what they learned and what the future holds for futurebooks at Indie Ink. After a Q&A with the audience, every attendee will have the opportunity to download the book app (free!), buy the softcover book at a special MOSO price--and have the creators there to sign it!

    Websites and apps aren't a collection of one-off, uniquely-designed pages. Yet, the typical design process is focused entirely on pages. In his talk, "Atomic Design," Ushahidi Creative Director Brandon Rosage shares how he's transformed his digital design process to focus on products' design system, rather than their individual screens. He shows case studies from his work breaking down complex e-commerce websites, news websites and crowdsourcing apps to their fundamental design components, which enables teams to create more consistent, intuitive and scalable design systems for their products.

    Cities around the world keep vying for the title of the next Silicon (something), and yet some of the strongest communities are sprouting up in place you'd never expect. A few years ago, Startup Edmonton launched into a scattered startup/tech scene, one that had a few big players like BioWare and Intuit, but a weak connection to the community. With entrepreneurs leading the way, they have galvanized a city around entrepreneurship and startups, by focusing on mentorship, space, talent, and good old fashioned community building from the ground up.

    Be Local Everywhere: Bootstrapping Your Way To Global Brand Loyalty

    +Read More
    Read Less
    While we can all agree that HootSuite is no longer a startup, many of bootstrapping lessons learned during those early days (and long nights) are still relevant. Moreover, they continue to act as cornerstones to the foundation for how HootSuite interacts with its users and builds community around the world. For any company to truly succeed in the global market they need to focus on the task of genuine localization for different markets and regions. From Starbucks to BestBuy and beyond, “hyperlocalization” is a trend that benefits both company and consumer, and is forming the foundations of many social business strategies. However, for those businesses that don’t have the budgets of these global giants, the scope (and the price tag) of being local everywhere is a seemingly overwhelming task. Thankfully, there are innovative ways to be hyperlocal without breaking the bank. Sharing examples from HootSuite's own global growth, as well as it's clients and some other companies doing it well, this session will share secrets and strategies on how you too can adopt a “be local everywhere” approach without breaking the bank.

    The Design Method: Using Process to Hack Design

    +Read More
    Read Less
    Many love the idea of being “creative,” but this desire is getting in our way. These biases are leading designers to bank on inspiration, worship “big ideas,” and treat design as a means of personal expression. Eric Karjaluoto says we need to change how we think about design. Unlike art, he believes design is about discipline and producing sensible, functional, and appropriate work. He argues that better design can be produced more consistently by employing methodology that moves the focus away from the studio/designer—and back to the client. In this session, Eric will debunk some creative myths, present a better way to produce design, and provide tips on how to make the design process clearer, faster, more valuable, and profitable.

In addition to the regular toppings, try real bacon bits, banana pepper, funky sauces, maple syrup, pickled carrots, asparagus, avocado slices, red pepper slides, sprouts, hummus, sun dried tomatoes, buffalo sauce, aoli, marshmallows or potato chips. There will even be a few more surprise toppings. And what would a BBQ without some other action? We’ve got Corn Hole, Ping Pong, DJs, bands and more.

    Social Media is still relatively new ground for most people despite its extensive use by marketers, bloggers, companies, brands, and those looking to connect and network. What people fail to realize is the importance and value it creates and brings, to the start of any human goal, both offline and online. While startups are advised and encouraged to seek legal and marketing assistance at the get-go, using social media purposefully from the start of any personal or professional project will transform goals into results that would not have been perceived, initially. Attend this session to learn more about Social Media as The Transformation Platform. This session will benefit people, companies, and brands with goals in mind. Students can learn how to kickstart the path to a career and get ahead of the game.

    Delivering News in a 4D Universe

    Read Less
    In the current context where news media in general and newspapers in particular must continually adapt and renew their news delivery offer and digital products to meet the needs of their audience, it has become essential to understand the habits and behaviors of users on all available platforms. To this end, the changes that have upset the universe of news media raise several important issues that affect the strategic development of new digital products: - What are the significant differences between users who choose to read news on paper, on the web, with their mobile phone or on a tablet? - How did news consumption evolve so quickly from a one-dimensional world (print) to a four-dimensional universe (social media, mobile, web, print)? To answer these questions, Philippe Collard will share the results of a study commissioned by Postmedia on the habits and needs of Canadian audiences who consume news and information across multiple platforms (print, web, mobile phone, digital tablet). He also will give an outline of the development strategy for new digital products that have been designed in the light of the results of this research and will soon be deployed to audiences across all Postmedia markets in Canada.

    We will be building applications that use Estimotes/iBeacons to get location positioning information. Imagine being able to send someone a notification when they walk into your store, classroom, or home. Imagine being able to show a map of exactly where a user is in a building, providing extremely targeted advertisements, or maybe showing what's on sale when a customer enters a specific department. These things are now possible thanks to Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), also known as "Bluetooth Smart" technology. We start by learning the basics, building some sample BLE applications as a group, and then allowing groups to build out and test their own BLE ideas. Everyone attending will be lent a set of Estimote/iBeacon devices to use. The beacons will also be for sale (at cost of C$120 for a set of three) after the workshop if you are interested in taking some home.

    This event is free for PAVED Arts Members, MoSo Priority Pass holders or $10 at the door. Get your passes at moso2014.com The movie is called Kung Fu Elliot and we will be joined by Matthew Bauckman, 1/2 of the DIY film making team behind. Matthew will be speaking on a panel at the conference and also be available after the screening for a Q&A. Becoming Canada’s first action hero is Elliot “White Lightning” Scott’s sole motivation. He ambitiously embarks on producing his no-budget karate epic Blood Fight, hot on the heels of his successful genre flickThey Killed My Cat. With support from Linda (his girlfriend/cinematographer/producer/caterer) and an outrageous cast, Scott takes a no-holds-barred approach to completing his film. Comparisons to American Movie are inevitable, but Smith is a more enigmatic character than his underdog persona first appears. The "so bad they’re good" movies of independent filmmakers have a dedicated following, but Jaret Belliveau and Matthew Bauckman don’t force scenarios or aim for easy punch lines in their Slamdance award-winning film. Instead, they wisely follow the adventure and place their faith in Scott like the rest of his quirky cast, while letting laughs and shock arise naturally. At the same time they maintain an observational eye and realize, over two years, that dreams and reality rarely cross paths. -Alexander Rogalski

Get your passes at moso2014.com As a teenager, Aaron Swartz took the Internet community by storm with capabilities, intellect and understanding that matched its most seasoned members. He helped found or develop countless household-name technologies and companies in the time it takes most people finish college. Aaron was a pioneer in Internet activism, and stood at the forefront of the SOPA and PIPA victories. He looked towards a limitless future—but his life took a dramatic turn. In 2011 and 2012, he was indicted by prosecutors who charged him with a staggering number of felonies. Aaron found himself facing 35 years in prison, and at the age of 26 was found dead in his apartment, from an apparent suicide. As we hear from those closest to Aaron, this incredibly inspirational and moving story shows how one of the most promising minds of a generation found himself staring down a government prosecuting him under the very laws he was fighting against. -Charlotte Cook

    SaskMusic and MoSo 2014 have teamed up to provide musicians and interested digital delegates with two thought-provoking and informative workshops that will connect the attendee with music and technology industry veterans. The Music Business is not the same as it was 10 years when physical distribution was king. Digital takes a bigger piece of the market every year and now with legal downloads and streaming subscriptions becoming more popular and changing the way people consume media where will the industry be in another 10 year’s. This panel will discuss the changes in the industry and how it all works and talk about the future of the industry and how digital will be part of that change. This event will be of particular interest to those looking to understand digital distribution and streaming services and their effects on the music industry better. The panel is FREE for all MoSo registered delegates and SaskMusic members, or $30 for non-members. Everyone is welcome to attend, however, please pre-register as space is limited. Contact 1-800-347-0676 or email info@saskmusic.org to register.
