Omaha Big Omaha year two is about to go down. Big Omaha year one was a success. How did all this come to be? When the short story is told, it starts in the summer of 2008 when Jeff Slobotski challenged himself and Silicon Prairie News co-founder Dusty Davidson to set a date, find a venue and book speakers in order to hold a first-class, unforgettable event.
