Gregg Hilferding joins the show to talk about an excellent summer fun event, called World Water Fight, happening August 9th 2014. Get together in the park and fight your friends with water guns. And because we're geeks, we're taking it a step farther and considering concepts for modifying drones to be self-targeting water bombers. Check out http://worldwaterfight.com for more info.

This week, we recap Ignite Tampa 2014, an event where twenty people each share their story in 20 slides, each auto-advancing every 15sec. The goal is to make you think, make you cry, and inspire you to take action to improve your life and the lives of others. Aubrey spoke about vulnerability as a lifestyle choice, not as a position of weakness, but as one of strength through adaptation, openness, and perseverance. Both Aubrey and Justin have spoken at past Ignite events.
