Bootstrap: Powerful & Easy HTML/CSS Templates

At the October 20, 2012, WebSigCleveland.org meeting, attendees were given an in-depth introduction to a collection of HTML/CSS components, as well as JavaScript extensions, that make the creation of websites easier -- Bootstrap. After I saw a May 15, 2012, presentation on Bootstrap from Twitter by the Cleveland Adobe Users Group leader, Dan Vega, I asked him to do his presentation at a WebSigCleveland.org meeting. Dan did a great job sharing his knowledge of the subject, and prepared an incredible set of slides that will be a resource for WebSigCleveland.org members going forward.

Here is a summary from my notes of some of the key points learned that day, along with a list of other related resources. I hope you find these as useful as I did.

Medwish serving the world!

 

On Saturday, November 3rd, we had a fascinating time learning about MedWish International with several other Cleveland Bloggers.  For the past 20 years, MedWish has been collecting surplus medical supplies to send to developing countries who greatly need them. MedWish began as an idea of Dr. Lee Ponsky. Dr. Ponsky, who was an undergraduate college student at the time, was working with volunteers in Africa, and saw the great need for medical supplies. He learned that these supplies could literally mean the difference between life and death.

BlueBridge Network Customer Appreciation Series: Economic Growth in Cleveland

As part of the BlueBridge Network Customer Appreciation Series, the Economic Growth in Cleveland event took place on Thursday, September 13, 2012. This annual event, hosted by BlueBridge Network's Kevin and John Goodman, was the annual get-together of tech and business people on the tarmac at Burke Lakefront Airport. While delicious hors d'oeuvres and cocktails on a pleasant September evening were the lure, the real hooks were the networking opportunities and the great speaker lineup.

Cleveland West Side Market Centennial Festival

We had a such a great time at the June 2, 2012, Centennial Celebration kickoff for the West Side Market, that decided to visit the October 7th Cleveland West Side Market Centennial Festival before attending the play Anything Goes at Playhouse Square.

View our photos of food at the West Side Market in addition to the Centennial Festival activities and artwork creation at Cleveland's Glass Bubble Project. There are also photos of the incredible rainbow we saw while walking from the Playhouse Square Broadway Buzz to the Palace Theatre to see Anything Goes.

Tweet! Tweet! Celebrating Three Years!

How did I get started promoting technology meetings and other events in Cleveland? It all started with my announcements at the beginning of my WebSigCleveland.org meetings. Over time, the number of meetings grew and grew, so that there were too many to announce. Then, Jim Evans (@GeekClean) asked, "Have you ever heard of Twitter?" And the rest is history...

IngenuityFest: Cleveland's Festival of Art & Technology

Another exciting IngenuityFest took place in Cleveland over the weekend of September 14-16!  In its great, new location at the Port of Cleveland Docks 30 & 32, attendees were treated to, and took part in, innovative examples of visual and performing arts, technology, and entrepreneurship. Throw in great food and spectacular views of our lakefront, and it all added up to a unique and very special event in Cleveland!

Cleveland Museum of Art Chalk Festival 2012

Every fall, the Cleveland Museum of Art's Fine Arts Garden's stone pathways become a colorful canvas for our community. People of all ages are invited to contribute to the creation of a tapestry of Cleveland art. This was my first visit to the Cleveland Museum of Art since they opened the new atrium. What struck me was, how after seeing artists' renditions of the atrium for the past couple of years, seeing it in the real world felt unreal. Join me in enjoying this Cleveland celebration of creativity by viewing my photos and interactive views of the festival.

PechaKucha Night Cleveland Volume 16

What is PechaKucha Night? "Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of conversation ("chit chat"), it rests on a presentation format that is based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds. It's a format that makes presentations concise, and keeps things moving at a rapid pace."

On Wednesday, September 12, 2012, PechaKucha Night Cleveland had the following presenters (in no particular order): Barbara Tannenbaum, Curator of Photography, Cleveland Museum of Art (photography); Mike Polk (comedy); Devin Vandermaas, The Factory 2.0 (fashion); Kristen Baumlier, Food Fonts (design); Mark Schatz, Unstable Geographies (sculpture); Kim Jenkins, Rising Star Coffee (coffee); Justin Markert, Cellar Door CLE (music); Margaret Mann, Tuscany Wines (wine); Mary Fagans, City Year CLE (community); Valerie Grossman (ceramics artist); Chris Ronayne, Port of Cleveland; Lennie Stover, Rotary, Trains and Bikes, Oh My! (amazing new public space).

Cleveland Business Connects Magazine’s September 2012 issue has the overall theme of information technology and social media in Cleveland. An article, "Networking 2.0: Techies Harness the Power of Continual Education," was written about WebSigCleveland.org and its partner organizations, the Greater Cleveland PC Users Group and the Cleveland Digital Publishing Users Group. These groups are headed by Jim Evans and Remington Phillips, respectively.

The article focuses on how these three Cleveland organizations provide face-to-face technology education. I love the title of the article, since I am a big supporter of continual education. This has led me to not only become the administrator of WebSigCleveland.org, but also to create my sosAssociates.com blog, which supports technology education groups in our community.
