I was the chair of the MIT/Stanford Venture Labs' 20th Anniversary Party. It was a great experience helping celebrate this entrepreneurship non-profit's celebrations, and I learned a lot about getting a lot of smart people to work together!
Although none of my proposals succeeded, it was nice to shake things up. I took a stronger leadership role instead of being directed as the Chair, balancing a lack of experience with the wisdom to know that a lot of opinions can make some wacky soup. I attempted to create a more flavorful soup.
I introduced the committees to Make magazine, was rescued by the venue in the end, and had some great fun.
