Free Online Event: The Visual Jam

By: Lee LeFever

I write books and run a company called Common Craft. I recently moved from Seattle to a rural island. Here, I write about online business, book publishing, modern home construction, and occasionally, dumb jokes.

This will be a good time! Two lively Brits, Grant and Paddy, host a live show called The Visual Jam. I will be their guest on July 8th to discuss The Art of Explanation and Common Craft videos. Register for Free

More Info:

Have you ever had a great idea for a product or a service or maybe an improvement to your business, but people just don’t seem to get it? More often than not it is because your idea has an explanation problem.

Well, fear not because Lee LeFever, co-founder of Common Craft and author of The Art of Explanation, is going to join us for a fun, interactive session where he will give us a sneak peek into the process that Common Craft follow to produce their world famous explainer videos – from script to storyboard to final content and animation!

I hope to see you there!

Dear Friend: Let’s Talk About Mastodon

I can assure you, dear friend, that Mastodon is different and this letter is my attempt to explain why and how. The big idea is that we don’t need tech companies, advertisers, shareholders, profit, or billionaires to connect online. In fact, they get in the way.
