Giving Technology to the World: Advocating, Showcasing and Explaining

"Complacency is the enemy of innovation and communication."

Christian Heilmann, @codepo8

Chris Heilmann, YDN evangelist, hacker, and global road warrior, raises the bar for advocacy and talks about some of the basic principles of tech evangelism on the open web.

In this recent internal talk for Yahoo! engineers who work on open platforms, Chris blasts some common assumptions and makes some strong recommendations about how to present technology to a technical audience. For starters, show how your product saves time or solves a problem for people who work on the web -- developers, designers, hackers of all ages.
