STEEMSTOCK 2017!!!! Starting to grow wings, but will it fly?

in #steemstock6 years ago (edited)

I've been holding off from posting on STEEMSTOCK for the past few days because my father's funeral hit me like a nuke. I just want everyone to know that I am doing this in honor of my father so it WILL happen whether it's 10 of us or 10,000!

I was making a list of everyone who has shown interest and this is what I have so far:

















If if anyone wants to add their name to the list please comment below. I have requested information on a few venues in Austin, Texas. I need a few more days to clear my head so thats it for now. 

Until next time, PLEASE feel free to start some brainstorming below. 



Texas SteemStock.

I'm very sorry for your dear friend @riosparada

Blessings to you and your family, @riosparada~*~

Steemstock sounds great, plus this is the first post I got a notification for! Steem on!

I suggest a proper -stock style festival:

  • awesome music
  • live art
  • camping
  • genuine sustainability
  • legit community building
  • I'll bring yoga!
  • dank food

with solid Steem repping:

  • crypto/trading/blockchain/tech/revolution talks
  • workshops
  • wifi
  • diversity & class & whatnot
  • one of those photo booth things
  • a marketplace of some kind

RS this for you and as always, thinking of you and the family.

Have a nice week!!!

If you like the Eagles - I am about to post something on them/Glenn Frey since it's a year since we lost him.

Brilliant! I've heard there are a lot cool cats in Austin! Best of luck! I'll re-steem and share with the hope that you pick up some more people.

Put me down for interest in playing music at STEEMSTOCK.

I'm just brainstorming here in hopes of generating more ideas...

Burning Man is a very successful yearly artistic happening in Northern Nevada. The participants work hard through the months to make it all happen. Of course, STEEMSTOCK will design it's own festival, but we might borrow on some of Burning Man's principles. According to Wikipedia:

The event is described as an experiment in community and art, influenced by 10 main principles, including "radical" inclusion, self-reliance and self-expression, as well as community cooperation, civic responsibility, gifting, decommodification, participation, immediacy and leaving no trace.

70,000 attended Burning Man in 2015

One interesting Burning Man concept is the use of regional groups (camps). These groups work together during the year creating regional events that mimic the main event on a smaller scale.

Since the Steemit community is global, it might be useful to have small local groups that can organize car pools, charter buses, planes etc. This might make attending STEEMSTOCK more economically feasible for the average minnow.

For example, having a camping option for STEEMSTOCK would lower costs significantly when you consider that a place to sleep is a major cost of traveling.

Another possibility is 50 people chartering a bus for $1000. That would be $20 per person each way. In addition, school buses can be chartered for $10 each way for 50 to 60 Steemians living within a few hundred miles of the STEEMSTOCK venue. If people are relatively frugal (e.g. eat at Subway and camp out) many could attend a 4 or 5 day STEEMSTOCK for way under $100.

This post has been ranked within the top 80 most undervalued posts in the second half of Jan 22. We estimate that this post is undervalued by $6.92 as compared to a scenario in which every voter had an equal say.

Indeed! I commented last night that I'm in. Understandable that you missed it. Not every day you get hit by a "nuclear disaster". Sorry for your loss, take care.
