March: Techno Magic
Post date: Feb 21, 2012 8:14:38 PM
March brings us Techno Magic - magic that uses some form of technology. This could be a mobile device, remote control, email, fax machine, laser, GPS unit, hidden electronics, or some other cool technology. As we do at every meeting, anyone who performs to theme will earn 5 Mark Wilson bucks and a chance to win a free $20 gift certificate to Hocus-Pocus.com.
Our meeting will start with two opening acts: Tricky Devil (Thi Dinh) and Everett Gomez. Our top raffle prize for the evening is Dean's Beads (DVD + Gimmick), with a retail value of $35. We will also accept additional nominations for the 2012-2013 officers.
We will not be having our traditional teach-a-trick, but instead will present a short lecture calledVirtual Technology and How It Can Help a Magician. This mini lecture will overview some of the free, or virtually free, online tools Magicians can use to promote, organize and manage their magic.
Here are some of the topics:
· How to create a free website.
· How to get your own customized web and email address for less than $15 a year.
· How to create a free business phone number and voicemail system.
· Free tools for collaboration, lists and writing.
· Facebook and Twitter benefits.
