Wow. What a ride. 3 months of work, consumed in 3 days. I still can only barely believe I have met all of you and you where all in Amsterdam, but then again, I only need to peek at the #steemfest channel to slap the truth in my face.
So great to read all your stories and experiences, I feel really flattered and great to see in the many ways you explored Amsterdam, the Volkshotel, met each other, formed new connections and relationships! Although being very tired, I still feel the vibe keeping me going. You guys totally blew me and my expectations away.
said tried to say in my closing remarks, having the idea for the event was more a fantasy, than something I would believe would actually happen. But by the drive of this community (YOU!), your help, your funding, your love, your desire and your passion it became to exist and boy did we have some fun. Ultra. Epic!
Some stats on SteemFest:
- 206 registrants
- 31 nationalities: AT, BE, BG, BR, BY, CA, CN, DE, DK, ES, FR, GR, HU, ID, IE, IN, JP, MY, MX, NO, NL, LT, PA, PE, PL, RO, RU, SE, TH, UK, US
- 35+ %ish female / 65- %ish male
- Livestream: 1000 viewers during the day, peak concurrent: 49 viewers.
Unfortunately at the moment the livestream recording of the main hall is muted because we forgot to mute the audio tracks played during the breaks. I'll ask @shourai who did the livestream production to do another round and mute those parts.
What you can still expect from SteemFest in the coming week(s):
- @t-r-f payouts (Travel Reimbursement Fund)
- uploading of all media, pictures and the snapcube pics.
- interviews by @futurefood with individual speakers
- pictures and movies by @steemychicken1
- livestream sessions cut at cue points to individual sessions.
SteemFest was only possible in this form with the help of many, both with hands as well as funding.
A big word of thanks to...
