I wanted to create an event that attracted a bevy of thoughtful future-oriented doers in the audio space, one that offered new ideas, inspiration, and compelling Q&A for radio, online radio, digital audio, and podcasting (I’m only pretending those are separate categories, of course). I also wanted to create an event that folks would be proud to attend not only because of the information and the networking, but also because it was just plain fun.

Here are some images from hivio 2014:

Thanks to Jaime Solis who helped me put all this together, to the entire tech crew, and to everyone in the audience and all who participated onstage with me.
