TechTalk - Alex North - Posse - This Friday 20 May!

We've had to juggle some dates around so despite my post yesterday, we're now holding the next Shoes of Prey TechTalk this Friday, 20 May.

We'll be joined by Alex North, a product manager at Posse. Posse is a platform for bands, artists, and venues to reward their fans for being their best promoters. Fans promote their favourite bands and earn rewards, from cash to unique items and experiences. Posse's initial focus is live music, but you'll need to come to the talk to hear about a much broader potential.

Alex is passionate about making things that make people happy, turning research & technology into products and services that delight people. He was a tech lead on Google Wave before joining Posse as product manager, and earlier founded a few business ventures of his own. Alex is also a mentor in PushStart's collective, specialising in product design and implementation.

You're welcome to join us from 5:15pm. Alex will present from 5:30pm-6pm and we'll aim to finish up around 7pm. Our address is 12/285A Crown St. Surry Hills. For those who can't make it or who aren't in Sydney I'll aim to summarise Alex's presentation for a future blog post.

You can RSVP either in the comments below or by email to michael@shoesofprey.com Thanks!


  1. dang it! my teleporter's broken. can you live stream this!? :)

  2. Just this once I wish I was in Sydney and not Brisbane!

    Seriously this is a great thing you guys have organised, and fantastic that you do a write up of it for us that can't be there.

    Sydney sounds like a great place at the moment for start ups, with Pushstart happening as well.
