This is the (very low quality) livestream from the talk I gave this week.
tl;dr: If you want to end the problem of lazy ideas at a creative event like a hackathon, give your people something a little more specific to do.

What's the deal with the title?
It's the name of his talk.
So Cool,I have stage fear and cannot talk on stage infront of a lot of people (I get shaky and nervous) no matter how much i know about a given subject.Any tips for me?
The thing that has always helped me is either looking past the people at the wall behind them, or imagining the crowd in their underwear. I know it sounds silly, but it worked lmao!
It might sound cocky but it's not:
Think of yourself as the hardest worker in the room. You're there to teach them how it's done. It all comes down to knowing your shit and being confident about it.
Drink a beer before you go up on stage
But seriously, there are a couple things I do/keep in mind:
Oh, and practice practice practice. That will give you confidence in your content.
I like how people give talks on Tedx, I don't know if they rehearse it several times before but they seem to know what they are doing.Anyways @fraq thanks for these tips man, will keep them mind.
There is a very specific speaking style that they coach you on for TED (not sure about TEDx).
And TED speakers have also rehearsed their talks so they're hitting checkpoints down to very narrow windows.
