The Feast 2012

Stop waiting for the world to change. Change it and the world will follow.

The Feast Conference 2012

The Feast Conference, Eyebeam Art + Technology Center, Oct. 3-5, 2012.

Started in 2008, The Feast fosters a community of remarkable people that make the world work better. I met co-founder Jerri Chou in 2011 while she was rethinking the organization.

Together, we brought back The Feast in 2012 with a new focus on in-person collaboration and public initiatives.

“The Feast’s approach is clear and focused on solution design and enterprise creation.”

“This invite-only gathering for innovative do-gooders has matured into the kind of event where you see people before they get a TED Talk.”

“Hey, any conference where Arcade Fire does acoustic “Wake Up” is automatically cosmic.”
—Stephen Levy, WIRED
