MiniMAX Video Toronto

A message from Adam Bell:

Hey Everyone,

A lot of you may be aware that about 2 1/2 years ago back in New Orleans I created a new type of 'conference' called MiniMAX which originally was supposed to be a once and done event for the local New Orleanians before Macromedia (now Adobe) did their annual MAX user conference. Little did I know it was going to become a hit and now it's been used at various web conferences across North America. For those unaware of the concept, it's me and five other speakers yapping and doing tutorials in a 15 minute per session format. So the whole thing gets done, prize drawings and all, in 2 1/2 hours or less.

Two weeks ago, I got to do it in Toronto for the very first time before the annual FITC (Flash in the Can) conference. I was pretty pumped on this because this was my sixth trip to Toronto and I knew the region pretty well and the local culture. So I took advantage of that and did a little opening bit around that. Most of you won't get the bit unless you know a lot about Canadian Sports Television and Canadian Culture. So with that in mind, you might want to check this out first to see what I spoofed:

Then go to and view the video from the event and hopefully, it'll make sense. Whatever the case, you can view my Photoshop/Illustrator/Fireworks 3D session and you'll probably understand that. There's at least one more preso up there and there should be more on blip later this week.
