I will post the deck from the Lab talk soon.
"No one? Good. We're all starting at the same place"
Sometimes, over-enthusiasm gets mistaken for a good idea.
I have given short "HTML for non-engineers" courses at Google a few times and so we decided for Internet Week Europe to pair up with Mel at BBHLabs and bring the idea to the world.
We called it codingfordummi.es
The point is not to "teach" HTML or anything like it - but to just open up the engine and have a look, reduce the fear factor, and break down some barriers. The walls between those who code and those who think and those who use are getting unnecessarily high...
Admittedly it was also terrific fun and I think you get the best sense of the event by following the #codefu hashtag from the bottom
Jeremey Ettinghauser did a lovely blog post: http://bbh-labs.com/crash-test-dummy
Paul Truong did an awesome HTML5 overview
and I talked for 3 hrs...
Check out the deck

It's not all new, (plenty of old stuff) and it's not all Googleness. In fact it's more about everything else (there is http://goollery.org after all). But it's definitely interesting.

WOW! (words of wisdom) is a monthly inspirational talk at Three Drunk Monkeys. An informal presentation within the agency where we invite people that inspire us both locally and internationally.
This first episode features Tom Uglow, Creative Lead for Google and YouTube Europe, amongst other things he shares the endless opportunities that digital provides for new ideas. Enjoy.
