Murphy's Law - present in every event....

If there's one thing that's always consistent with events, it is that "nothing is ever consistent" and you must plan for "Murphy's Law" to reign.  Someone took this concept to a new level and started a great blog called "Breaking Murphy’s Law". 

Written by someone who shares what he's learned from many years behind the curtain, Lee Pott's goal is to provide a platform for event professionals to share tips and lessons learned so others can avoid similar mistakes when producing shows.   I can remember learning how important it is to have two laptops running simultaneously at every show when someone "kicked" the power cord loose and we went to blue screen.  I learned to always tape the presenters lavaliere mic to the on position after our CEO flipped it to "off" while walking onto the stage - in front of 700.

If you're responsible for the show produciont/AV or any aspect of what happens on the stage this is a great site to follow. From Lee's Breaking Murphy's Law: I think everyone also recognized this as an important part of participating in their profession. A trick, tip or technique learned while listening to these stories could be crucial to saving a meeting as well as a career. Sharing your own stories (even the ones you would rather keep to yourself) was expected and strongly encouraged.
