DeMo Intro Deck, January 2012

Deck I used to walk through the introductions, housekeeping, and overview of DeMo for the January 2012 session at Startup City in Des Moines. I'm sharing this so that folks who weren't in attendance might get a better idea of what DeMo is all about. You can read about the January 2012 presentations on my blog:
