Trampoline Thoughts

Just under two weeks ago, we ran the third Trampoline – an informal unconference which brings people from a variety of disciplines together to share what they find amazing.

The day is filled with 20 minute sessions on whatever people who are there offer to discuss. We get a fantastic mix of topics: health, technology, education, dance, meditation, music, media, juggling, comedy, entrepreneurship and more. In true unconference style, none of this is planned beforehand – no speaker is given preference, there’s no keynotes.


All three thus far have been in Melbourne. We’re definitely interested in sharing the love to other cities (but nothing’s locked in yet). That said, it’s a pretty safe assumption that Melbourne host its fourth sometime towards the end of the year.

From a personal perspective, I find these days amazingly energetic and inspiring (granted, I’m a little biased, being one of the organising team). It’s provided me (and many others) an avenue to connect with interesting, passionate people they wouldn’t normally meet. It’s just one of many things happening in Melbourne that solidifies my belief that it is truly – if you’ll excuse the hubris – a global cultural hub.

Adding to the Grid

If you’re interested in keeping an eye on future events, add yourself to the email list, and maybe follow the official Twitter account. There’s also a set of videos – the bulk being from the latest Trampoline – on Vimeo, and a growing set of photos on Flickr.

I’m pretty stoked with how well received Trampoline has been thus far, and looking forward to making the next one even better. Would love to see some more new faces there too, so if you’re keen, jump on the list or get in touch!

This is great for people located overseas who still seek to learn from an American institution
no matter where they are. Many of the housewives and those who had to
discontinue education due to some unforeseen circumstances are better equipped to begin a career or a business after having been trained in
either of the professional courses that are available online.
Assistance programs such as FAFSA, Fastweb, private loans, University grants are always there—it is a
matter of inquiring into the availability of each.

natural treatment natural cures for lice and nits said:

Reluctance to feed, darting around in an alarmed
state, no balance, rubbing or darting past objects, hiding more than usual, being shy, or unusual positioning in the aquarium are all early warning signs.
Another option is to go to a “lice treatment center” where a clinician will treat head lice.

pesitis is primarily transmitted to people who have been bitten by infected fleas that are carried on animals,
particularly rodents, but can also be cats and even camels.

Thanks , I have just been searching for info about this topic for a
long time and yours is the best I have discovered so far.
But, what in regards to the conclusion? Are you certain concerning the source?

For example, trends tend to be shorter and less explosive,
and trade signals, such as chart patterns,
will give a higher percentage of false signals.
Excellent software program can also be recommended to be
used. Keep in mind not all governments around the world have a strong history of
paying bonds so you will need to do some additional research to better understand
the risks involved in foreign bonds.
