Startup Weekends are 54-hour events where developers, designers, marketers, product managers and startup enthusiasts come together to share ideas, form teams, build products, and launch startups!

Startup Weekends are weekend-long, hands-on experiences where entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs can find out if startup ideas are viable. On average, half of Startup Weekend’s attendees have technical backgrounds, the other half have business backgrounds.

Okay, I've had a short novel (novella?) sitting on my computer for a long time.  Have thought about submitting it, self-publishing or epublishing but haven't gotten too far.

I have an account on Lulu but I feel a little overwhelmed when I try to upload it and create a cover.  Personally, I don't feel like a technology newbie but for some reason this has me stumped and I end up not getting it published.

Has anyone published that can offer some steb-by-step guidance?

FLCreatives Happy Hour #64 at Tailgaters UCF

Florida Creatives Happy Hour


Tailgaters UCF
4000 E Central Florida Blvd East Plaza Drive
Orlando, FL 32816
Phone: 407-882-0777
Community or Meetup: 
Mar 19 2012 6:00p - 9:00p

Join Orlando's longest-running creative meetup to celebrate our 5th year of bringing likeminded people together. You can get great benefits out of meeting new people, like stimulating your brain, having a safe (non-judgemental) place to talk shop, finding someone to help you build that next startup, or just making friends.

The who live/work in East Orlando will get some due for a) being noisy and b) being present at last month's Happy Hour (seriously how could you guys miss out on free beer?). Therefore we are venturing on to the UCF campus near the stadium for the Tailgaiters Smoke House experience.

If we keep this up maybe we can eventually have more than one Happy Hour a month... (Dr. Evil Pinky)?

Also curious how we get some students - Marketing, Communications, Digital Media, Computer Science, Creative Writing, etc to attend these if we keep doing them in their back yard. Discuss!

Thanks to Barry Kirsch for our new promo picture!

Join the members of the circuit-bent rock band CMKT4 for a workshop on building your very own EconoMIC Bottle Cap Contact Microphone (from Creme DeMentia). CMKT4 will show you how to solder up a piezo-electric pickup and house it sturdily in a recycled bottle-cap housing of their own design! Stick around for a set from the band as the tool-handle dip on your freshly built contact microphone dries. Additional take-home kits and other surprises will be available, come build a mic and see and hear some of the circuit-bent instruments you've read about on up close. Bring your own instruments and objects to amplify!
