Essential Magic Conference

July 15, 2010

The Essential Magic Conference is the world’s first web conference for magicians. 33 speakers over 3 days of conference streamed live worldwide. It is currently broadcasting live, and will continue doing so until the 17th of July.

It began today and I have to say, within 10 minutes of watching, I  felt I had already got my money’s worth. EMC is like the TED of the magic world. It’s unbelievably well-organised, the presentations and performances have so far been fantastic, the interaction online with both viewers and organisers/participants has been great and just check out that awesome logo! (which they have made into a table for the panel talks) Having attended previous magic conventions, such as the Blackpool Magic Convention, I have to say that this is actually almost as good as the real thing. The fact that it is being recorded in its entirety, and as a result, a set of dvds will be sent to the viewers. Reminds of how the fantastic Dublin PechuKucha events are available for viewing online.
