Event Tech of the Week: @memory_meld
Liz King is one cool person who loves great event tech as much as I do. This post she is talking up Memory Meld which allows you to collect and share images from your attendees (cool right…..)
Right now, in Russia, there is some pretty scary shit going down for the LGBT community. As an industry, it is time to start thinking about where we host our events. I feel that if a destination does not meet your standards on how you treat your fellow man, you should probably take that destination off your list. What is happening now in Russia is a disgrace, they are actually turning the clock backward for humanity.

We are planners. Events run on a strict timeline. Read this article.
Mobile hotspots kick ass. They allow you to keep on working whereever you are. Here is one that PC Mag reviews for the Sprint Network.
Have a great weekend everyone!
