Video from Jennifer Sly’s Talk on BarCamp Swaziland at “MinneDemo”

Here is a video by Minnov8TV of the technology event “MinneDemo” (Minnesota Demos) held on May 7th where technologists have only 7 minutes to demonstrate their newest technology projects.  Jennifer Sly, Executive Director of YouthAssets, was given an opportunity by organizers Ben Edwards and Luke Francl to address the technology companies in her hometown, Minneapolis, Minnesota in the United States at the MinneDemo event. She wanted to encourage technology companies to support the innovation of the global tech community by sponsoring BarCamp Swaziland.  You can hear her voice quickly in the soundtrack, but no footage of her speech.  She strongly believes that the global tech community will be the most innovative through mutual support and increased diversity, especially across specialties/geographic borders/race/ and gender!
