A Bargain-Bin MoMA: Content Curation on a Budget (Presentation for Ignite Boston 7)

Right now, as this post is publishing, I am getting ready to give my first real presentation at Ignite Boston 7. Hopefully, all is well and paramedics have not been summoned to the Microsoft NERD.

I’ve set up this blog post as a repository for the presentation, related links and photo credits. So even if you are not at Ignite Boston 7, I hope you find these materials useful.

EDIT – Video now available:
