The Crowd Effect

Understanding crowds for business, for community, and for survival.

Douglas Campbell  

Master of Ceremonies
Douglas Campbell / Co-Founder & Curator, Mindshare LA

The world's population just hit 7 billion. Can we work together, or are we completely screwed? Either way, grab a drink, sit back and enjoy the show!

Francis DellaVecchia  

The Joyful 99: Activating the Crowd
Francis DellaVecchia / Founder, Cultural Connections LLC

Now that the 99% meme has captured the collective imagination, DellaVecchia explores how going forward, we each can get joyfully activated, how we can meaningfully and sustainably play our part in this new politically awakened landscape, and how we can impact the direction of the first American crowd-sourced social movement.

Francis DellaVecchia is recognized as the founder of the Joyful Activist movement, having coined the term to describe the volunteers who participated in his campaign to become the mayor of Los Angeles in 2001. His Joyful Activist Playbook: Transforming Outrage into Outrageous Fun is due to be published in Spring 2012.

Kevin Reeve  

Mob Mentality: When Good Crowds Go Bad
Kevin Reeve / Founder and Director, onPoint Tactical Tracking School

When a perfectly good crowd turns into a nasty mob, what can you do to protect yourself? Reeve explores mob psychology: how a crowd can be hijakced by everyday people when they act collectively - and what you can do about it.

Kevin has provided training to law enforcement, SAR teams, and the US military in the arts of tracking, survival, escape and evasion and urban operations. Prior to founding onPoint Tactical, he spent 8 years as the director of a top US tracking program, plus a 5 year stint at Apple Computer doing organizational development and executive coaching.

--Fast Company

If you haven't been to a Mindshare LA event, you haven't seen Angelenos at their eclectic best.


A forward-thinking cultural salon.  New ideas flow as liberally as the alcohol.

--Brand X

This is what it would be like if the internet jumped out of the box and grabbed your arm for a trip into Alice's Wonderland of ideas and madmen.

--KCET Online (LA PBS affiliate)

A forum for human technology in its most literal form - shared knowledge.  Fueled by fancy pastries, an exceptionally well-stocked open bar and a room abuzz with stylish people.
