    Brian Michael Bendis is an award winning comics creator, New York Times bestseller and one of the most successful writers working in mainstream comics. For the last fifteen years, Brian’s books have sat on the top of the nationwide comic and graphic novel sales charts. Brian completed 9 years helming Marvel’s popular AVENGERS franchise. Brian has won five EISNER awards, including ‘Best Writer of the year’ two years in a row and was honored with the INKPOT award for comic art excellence. Brian is the recipient of the Cleveland Press ‘Excellence in Journalism’ Award and was named "Best Writer of the Year" by Wizard Magazine and Comic Buyer’s Guide for three consecutive years.

    In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

  2. Voices of Wrestling : Wrestlenomics Radio: Kayfabermetrics

    Host Chris Harrington (@mookieghana) is joined by Matthew Timmons of Kayfabermetrics for 90 minutes of discussion on the art and artifice of creating pro-wrestling statistics.  We cover inspirations, the dataset challenges, inventing custom metrics, key learnings, great project names, overcoming hurdles and much more.  

    Matthew explains his novel approach for looking at "velocity" going into a PPV, what it means to be pushed (or buried) based on match length, how to rate opponents’ strength and more going far beyond the dull win-loss metrics that don’t really illustrate the full story. Also, we look at the weirdest keywords to gain readers, what tools we use, the mistakes that keep us up at night, the lonely life of making arguments using numbers and future goals.

    You can see Matthew’s work at www.kayfabermetrics.com (@kayfabermetrics) and Juice Make Sugar. Mookie’s website is at indeedwrestling.com and indeedwrestling.blogspot.com (@mookieghana)
