This week on #mochat, we talked about surviving NAB with co-host Toolfarm, who also has their own page of extensive tips. Kylee Wall also shared her article on Creative COW for thriving at NAB. At the end of the chat, we were able to give away 5 Toolfarm t-shirts to @Motionworks, @qsjcraig, @steveHardawa, y@kyl33t, and @EllsDynamic. @FakeGreenDress was the lucky winner of a $100 Toolfarm.
