The Viral Video Manifesto: Why Everything You Know is Wrong and How to Do What Really Works

By Stephen Voltz and Fritz Grobe

If you’re one of the more than 120 million people who watched the YouTube video of “Exploding Mentos and Diet Coke,” then you’re a part of viral video success - and you can recreate the phenomenon with easy-to-follow steps that can help you reach the same incredible level of visibility.

For Kickstarters who need compelling short films for funding; for brand teams wondering how to shoot the next YouTube sensation; for anyone who ever watched a clip of a monkey riding a dog(!); for anyone who dreamed of having their YouTube short be the next Old Spice Guy - this entertaining read explains it all!

Mayor Bloomberg Declares MAKER WEEK in NYC

NEW YORK, NY—(Marketwire - Sep 26, 2012) - World Maker Faire, the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth, and New York Hall of Science are proud to announce that Mayor Michael Bloomberg and the New York City Economic Development Corporation have proclaimed that the week of September 24 - 30 as “Maker Week.” 

In honor of the third annual World Maker Faire on September 29-30, the proclamation embodies all that Maker Faire is and stands for: ingenuity, creativity, and a DIY spirit in a space that children and adults alike can see, learn, do, and explore. It brings together artists, food makers, tinkerers, crafters, engineers, scientists, and innovators — a community who loves to make and share their passion for it with others. Maker Faire is thrilled to have the entire week declared “Maker Week” and share the maker movement with the City of New York.

There will be maker activities, conversations, and gatherings all week in the city. Here are a few of the more notable:
