Max Wallace is no stranger to risk. As founding president of Hackerspace Charlotte, sometimes things can be a little…uncertain. That’s why we were excited to hear his talk at Ignite Charlotte 3, “Who Dares, Wins: Misevaluation of Risk in Modern Culture”. It was a fascinating look into what is actually risky versus what looks risky, and really isn’t (i.e. deaths while having a ground pool versus the probability of a shark attack).
Wallace has been on quite the hot streak. He spoke at TEDxCharlotte, took the SAT again on a bet, and finished the World’s Largest QR Code attempt with Hackerspace Charlotte.
Max told us that Ignite Charlotte introduced him to a whole new range of fascinating people. He then said that although he can’t tell us, “you’ll definitely know we’ve done it by the sonic boom.”
We didn’t push further.
Lastly, Hackerspace Charlotte was featured in January’s Charlotte Magazine. Check ’em out!
Thanks for participating in Ignite Charlotte 3, Max, and keep on making Charlotte interesting!
