Gary Lachance

Biography

Hi there. My name is Gary and I’m the co-founder of “Tom and Gary’s Decentralized Dance Party” AKA “The DDP” AKA “The Party Revolution.”

For the past four years, we’ve been relentlessly touring North America, organizing revolutionary acts of shared experience on a scale made possible only by cutting-edge technology. Our Parties are free, open to anyone, organized through social media, powered by crowdfunding and hosted exclusively in public spaces.

The DDP takes the limitless connectivity of an online community and translates it back into the physical world, creating an ever-expanding feedback loop of social collaboration and individual empowerment.

Talk Title: Can Partying Bring World Peace?

The DDP takes the limitless connectivity of an online community and translates it back into the physical world, creating an ever-expanding feedback loop of social collaboration and individual empowerment.

Without once acquiring a permit, we’ve hosted 60 massive Parties in over 30 major cities, with total attendance easily exceeding 100,000 people.
The DDP has been featured in WIRED Magazine, The Daily Beast, ABC’s Nightline, CBC, NBC, Maclean’s, Huffington Post and many more.

Our ultimate objective is to share the DDP with every single country in the world and win the Nobel Prize for Partying.
We are serious.

It would be great to share our story and discuss:
– The Global Party Pandemic Of 2014
– The Open-Source Boombox we’re currently developing called “The Social Stereo”
– The emergent phenomenon that is “Decentralization” (the ideology which has guided all aspects of this project from day one).

I would probably present by synthesizing the following videos:
