5 Reasons You Shouldn’t Miss CMX Summit

logoWe’ll be there.

Other awesome people will be there.

You should probably be there too.

But don’t take our word for it. Take all of these words for it…here are five reasons why you shouldn’t miss CMX Summit:

1. The Best Community-Minded Professionals and Brands All Under One Roof

What happens when you get all of the top community professionals, put them in one giant room for a day and inspire them with new perspectives and captivating stories? We’re about to find out….

The best and brightest minds in community building are coming to discuss real topics of change in the space. Community Managers, Directors and Executives representing brands like Google, Buzzfeed, TED, Huffington Post, Lyft, Apple, Facebook, Eventbrite, Yelp, Soundcloud, Moz, 500 Startups, and many  more will be on hand to dig deep into what makes the best communities thrive and share their different experiences.

2. Robin Dreeke is speaking…nuff said

His talk alone is worth the cost of a ticket. With over 26 years of experience in behavioral analysis including his role as the Head of Behavioral Analysis for the FBI, Robin’s expertise lies in training other people how to build trust with anyone in any situation. He usually gives 2 day seminars but is coming to CMX to speak because of his passion for helping other people build communities.

3. Learn from the industry’s top professionals

With community professionals like Ligaya Tichy (Yelp and Airbnb), Emily Castor (Lyft) and Ellen Leanse (Apple) speaking, you’re getting insights from the community industry’s pioneers. They’re giving talks that they’ve never given before. You will walk away from CMX a smarter, more knowledgable community builder.

The entire lineup was curated by David Spinks, the founder of CMX Summit who has been deeply involved in the community of community building for years starting companies dedicated to creating resources for community managers while also managing communities for Le Web, Zaarly, and his own companies Feast and The Community Manager.

4. Network with People Dedicated to Lasting Communities

You’ll also come away from CMX with a support network of people who are just like you. They’re facing, or have faced, the same challenges and obstacles that you have. Ironically, building communities can feel pretty lonely sometimes, because while you’re constantly surrounded by people, there aren’t many people you feel you can relate to and confide in. All CMX attendees get access to the exclusive CMX community and will forever have a group of people they can count on.

5. It’s all going to be livestreamed

In case we’ve totally convinced you but you still can’t make it, we’ve got your back. You can still tune in to the talks through the free livestream. Just RSVP here.

Illuminate SF is the latest city-wide installation project in San Francisco

Illuminate SF is the latest city-wide installation project in San Francisco

San Francisco is an artsy mecca, full of brilliant outdoor murals, quirky galleries and installations. And Illuminate SF is one of these great installation projects around the city that sees light and art combine into out-of-this-world experiences and eye candy. From Ned Kahn’s 12-storey sculpture at Civic Center to Brian Goggin & Dorka Keehn’s Language of Birds at the intersection of Broadway and Columbus – every light installation in the city is just as thoughtful, wacky, innovative, and incredible as the next.

But the one that takes the cake? It’s gotta be The Bay Lights by Leo Villareal. This installation sees the world’s largest LED light sculpture come to life with 25,000 white LEDs glistening in the night. The display never repeats itself and it’s displayed across the Bay Bridge’s west span, going 1.8 miles wide and 500 feet high. It’s so impressive in the evening, it’s definitely worth a visit to San Francisco just to see it. It’ll be on display until 2015, so you still have time!

What San Francisco's Muni System Would Look Like With A Facelift

Derek Kim wanted to update the transit system's branding with a more modern, uniform look.

Since the 1970s, San Francisco's public transit system, Muni, has carried an iconic red logo designed by branding legend Walter Landor--the creative mind behind famous logos for companies like Coca-Cola and FedEx. "I think it's the most unique logo out of all of the transit systems in the world," says San Francisco-based designer Derek Kim. "That is what makes Muni special."

What San Francisco Looked Like Before The Dot-Coms Invaded

South of Market is a provocative new photo book that's 30 years of controversy in the making.

Facebook, Apple, and Google are making headlines for flooding San Francisco with highly paid laborers, driving up real estate prices while taking over public bus stops to privately shuttle employees out of town to work. Truth is, the culture clash between Silicon Valleyites and San Francisco locals has been going on for decades.

Hot to Handle

Paul Chatem
Rough Ridin’ Bull Moose Son of a Bitch
Mixed media on wood with moving gears,
36 x 36 in

Feathers are flying at San Francisco’s Shooting Gallery as Paul Chatem unleashes The Guerneville Goose – his collection of interactive, energy packed kinetic paintings – on the world. Chatem’s scenes are nightmarish flame-filled pits of despair or angry, boiling seas where the protagonists are condemned to face the same struggles and suffer the same fates in perpetuity thanks to the purposefully repetitive cog mechanisms. These devices imbue the already dynamic works with even more vibrancy.

The titular goose pursues its hapless Depression-era victims with violent, spit-filled honks. These suited refugees hide, or are hidden, by masks, which are another recurring feature of Chatem’s tableaux. Other ceremonial and ritual masks leer colourfully from the reclaimed wood. Elements of mythology also make an appearance in subverted form, such as the contradictory ram-women, and the human-bodied, donkey-masked figures are reminiscent of an inverted centaur. The Guerneville Goose collection also boasts some great titles; how about Rough Ridin’ Bull Moose Son of a Bitch for an evocative name? The show finishes 1 February.

Last Photo Video Series

Ivan Cash a eu l’excellente idée de lancer une série de vidéos ‘Last Photo’ tournées lors de ses voyages durant lesquels ils demandent à des inconnus croisés au hasard leur dernière photo sur leur téléphone. Une initiative sympathique à travers notamment une vidéo tournée à New York, Los Angeles et San Francisco.

The eerie tunnels of San Francisco

The eerie tunnels of San Francisco

We’ve all heard of the Paris Catacombs, but what about San Francisco’s underground world? Sierra Hartman takes us on an extraordinary journey into the heart and soul of San Fran, where street art and forgotten mementos lie side by side.

‘The boom and bust mentality of this city has been an ongoing trend since the gold rush days. So much of the city has been built in consecutive layers that traversing large parts of it entirely underground is not as difficult as you might think’, says Hartman.

Take a look at these amazing photographs to see a San Francisco like you’ve never seen before.

Guess what, Ai Weiwei is coming to Alcatraz

Guess what, Ai Weiwei is coming to Alcatraz

Chinese artist Ai Weiwei is coming to San Francisco’s Alcatraz island as part of a ‘site-specific sculpture, sound and multimedia’ work throughout the island. Announced by the FOR-SITE Foundation this year, the exhibition won’t take place until September 2014, but ideas are already in the works and a few snippets of info are already out there.

Restricted areas that are usually kept closed to the public will be opened for this special exhibition, revealing ‘new perspective on Alcatraz,’ while examining ‘incarceration as a tool of political repression and art as an act of resistance.’

We’ve seen the amazing installations Ai Weiwei is capable of, so I can’t wait to see what he can do with an entire island.
