Dorian Demos Zibz at Park 2.0, Barcelona - by b

{{update march 6, 2010, see this post at the new zibkids blog}}
As some of you know, Dorian and I have been developing a really cool web site that lets any kid become an entrepreneur.. it's called Zibz (biz backwards) and you can find it at www.zibkids.com. Today Dorian had a fantastic opportunity to demo Zibs to a couple hundred grad students at an innovation/entrepreneurship park. He did an awesome job---including a nice intro in Spanish. The event was filmed and we've been promised video. For now, some snaps.

Dorian demo'ing. He did all the talking, I was his typing monkey. (I did get a chance to speak before Dorian... a talk on the subject of entrepreneurship... I had been asked to encourage the students to start companies)

After the Demo

After Dorian's demo there was a raffle. Many students ran up to enter.



Dorian was asked to give out the prizes. You can hear a great mix of Spanish, Catala and English.

Before the demo, Dorian was given a tour of the Media Lab at the school/park. He got to try on a cool motion-capture glove.

It was a fun morning! Dorian was nervous going in. But he totally, totally rocked it! He said he had fun. And he said he feels good that he knows he can get up in front of loads of people again.
