Day 2 of Big Boulder has officially started!
The sun is shining, and it is already a beautiful Colorado day outside. Earlier this morning a few attendees were able to catch a glimpse of His Holiness the Dalai Lama as he exited the St. Julien Hotel, as apparently good company is kept here at the #BigBoulder Conference. 🙂 Other attendees participated in a nearby hike from Chautauqua National Historic Landmark up to Boulder’s signature Flatirons rock formations, capturing beautiful views of the city all the while. It is certainly shaping up to be a good one!
The day’s sessions kicked off with moderators Mark Josephson, the CEO of Bitly, and Farida Vis, Director of the Visual Social Media Lab at Sheffield University, discussing a few topics from yesterday and reiterating that the BBI channel on Slack is a key part of the BBI mission and focus for ongoing programming. The flow of information, as they say, is crucial for building community through Slack.
They closed their short introduction by mentioning that the Big Boulder Initiative would be having a discounted membership drive from now until next Friday (July 1st, 2016), with a BOGO membership costing $250. Then it was “down to business” again with the introduction of the first interview with Sara Haider, the Client Engineering Lead at Periscope.
