#HacksHackers Toronto (#hhto): May event video now online

In case you missed it, I’ve uploaded video of the presentations from the fifth Hacks/Hackers Toronto event on May 30, 2011. (They’re a bit dark, I’m afraid, but the audio is good.)


This was the largest and most successful Hacks/Hackers Toronto event to date. My compliments to this month’s lead host, Kim Fox, for the excellent work pulling all of the pieces together, finding the speakers, and getting the word out.

Ivor, Kim, Mason, and I will be meeting in the coming weeks to chart a course for Hacks/Hackers Toronto through to the end of 2011. If you have any suggestions, feel free to let us know.
