Top five videos of 2009
Looking back over last year, 2009 was truly amazing! We highlighted an unbelievable amount of entrepreneurs, innovators and creatives. The following five videos were the most viewed interviews we conducted last year. We wanted to pull them off the shelf and share them with you again!
After meeting Jason at Big Omaha, we've been following the news from 37Signals. Jason was gracious enough to talk with me about Sortfolio (which was called Haystack at the time) and some other features 37Signals is rolling out. I asked him for a brief overview of the site as well as how it will benefit web design firms in our region. Sortfolio is a visual directory of web design firms that's let you view them by location and cost.
Megan Hunt, a.k.a. Princess Lasertron, a.k.a. amazingly talented local designer with a national following, continues to produce top-notch work for brides and brides-to-be! Megan embodies the incredible talent of our region's creative class. We're looking forward to what 2010 brings for her!
We came across the Great Omaha Pillow Fight through a Facebook invite for the event. Seeing there were close to 700 people attending, and several thousand more were invited, we wanted to meet the man behind this magic. Enjoy the interview Danny Schreiber conducted with Jon and stay tuned to Silicon Prairie News. We've heard some buzz in the twittersphere that the Great Omaha Pillow Fight II will be coming this June.
4. Interview with Jimmy Winter of Music Arsenal (Jan. 19)
Before Jimmy's latest project, RockDex, there was Music Arsenal, which he still runs to this day. But Music Arsenal has taken the backseat to the limelight RockDex receives. Check out the interview Dusty Davidson conducted with Jimmy to hear how the idea came to him to create online band management software.
One of Omaha's leading non-profits addressing our city's homeless and poverty issues went through a rebranding earlier this year. Hear from Christian about their brand relaunch events (formerly Mosaic Community Development) and how inCommon looks at homelessness differently than other models.
