The Madness Begins

2009 December 21
by bullybully32

Welcome to MADPHX.

We are a group of Phoenix Area residents who are each doing our part to Make A Dent. In a struggling economy built on failing models for business and societal growth; it is time to take this city into our hands and try something new. We believe that Phoenix needs to take advantage of the talent, passion, and energy of the creative residents to actively change the ways we attract investment, foster innovation, encourage creativity, and take care of our neighbors.

This podcast is our way of sharing with you and with one another on various issues we have encountered with our individual projects; and to share about our collective contributions to making Phoenix a more hospitable home for everyone.

You’ll be pleased to read that we are MAD but not angry. The founders of this podcast also do not believe that we are the voice of Phoenix, the creative class, or anyone other than ourselves.

MAD is well aware that we aren’t the only people who care about this city.

But who are we? (alphabetically; and by reverse importance)

Bully Bjorn – Dojo Collective; fractalphx; Phoenix Design Week; CenPho.TV; AHCCCS.

Derek Neighbors -Gangplank; Integrum; Held; 5th Dimension

Jose Gonzalez – The Torch Theatre; ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ; Phoenix Improv Festival; Writer.

Mark Dudlik – Phoenix Design Week; Dojo Collective; Sprawl; fractalphx; SarkissianMason.

Nina Miller – The Torch Theatre; ASU Office of the President & College of Design; Actress.

and…

Not-So-Random Guest Stars!

We hope that you will join us for regular installments of witty, insightful, inane, impassioned, and pointed commentary about the things we do; the people and things we care about; and the ways you can get involved and make your own dents.
