Going to XOXO two weeks before Ruckus NYC went down was really fascinating. As an attendee, XOXO was a blast. As a producer, I was in awe. The next event I run is learning a LOT from this.
A lot of what Andy Baio says in this post I could have guessed, but the bits I didn’t know and the coherence of the presentation are wonderful to have as resources.
side note: I have no idea how to fix the diversity problem without creating other problems for the event next time, but wow is that a fun problem to work on.

Are you committed to an artist’s work, and want them to be able to focus on art instead of producing? GO RUN THEIR SHOW FOR THEM. Speaking as a producer and artist with a day job, we’ll TOTALLY LET YOU.
If you want to keep up with all the different stuff I make for the internet, this tumblr is probably best place. I also just post fun things sometimes cause it's the internet.
