The Modern Art of Yoyoing: This Ain't Your Grandpa's Butterfly
DID YOU KNOW:
- decent yoyos will spin for as long as 10 minutes?
- rocket and aircraft scientists are engineering insanely awesome yoyos in their free time?
- there are 9 styles of play for yoyo competitions?
- that people hold yoyo competitions?
- a good yoyo can cost over $100?
- yoyoing is superawesomefunfunfun?
Come learn why yoyoing has become my favorite distraction from writing code, and get a taste of the brilliant insanity that is the modern yoyo.
I'll bring a handful of yoyos, teach some cool yoyo tricks, and describe all the goofy awesomeness of the yoyoing community (yeah, yoyoing has a community).
If you brought a yoyo to Denver, bring it along and show it off!
And sorry to break it to you, but nobody walks the dog anymore.
