"Make Milwaukee": Most Creative Accomplishments at Spreenkler

Listen: Last week, our multi-day transmedia white-knuckled kidnapping saga was designed to end in spectacular fashion on Wednesday at the Spreenkler Meetup slated to take place at  Gravity Marketing. As you might recall, Mother Nature had different plans for our grand finale, instead dumping a plan-dampening blizzard on our city forcing us to postpone. So here we are, waiting to exhale. Shucks...

In the meantime, for the the veterans and uninitiated alike, we have a little Spreenkler sample -- a few audio pieces culled from interviews gathered at their January gathering at the Wherehouse.

With a captive group of imaginative and motivated folks, I asked them to share a major creative accomplishment. The collective consciousness did not disappoint:

The awesome Marilyn Basasie from You Are spHERE shares how she went from a pretty normal life to learning how to "dance with fire as her partner:"

Ian Abston shares a recent creative accomplishment from the holiday season -- dancing light men made from broken snow fence and strings of lights:

Finally, local engineer and inventor Adam Cohen presents a way to play paintball without the mess:

I'll definitely be at the next Spreenkler with a microphone and plenty of questions for you to answer -- stop by and share in the creativity!
