During the late 1980s, Lynch met the television producer Mark Frost and they decided to start working together on a project that never got off the ground. It was whilst they were talking in a coffee shop that Lynch and Frost both had the idea of a corpse washing up on the shore of a lake, and using this image as a basis subsequently set about on their third project, which they initially named Northwest Passage but which would eventually come to fruition as the television series Twin Peaks.
ValioCon is an annual conference held in Mission Bay, San Diego. The speakers are mostly people building awesome web-based products and encouraging everyone else to do the same, with an overarching theme of doing what you love, and find happiness in doing it every day. Steve Schoeffel sums it up nicely:
Just get out and do stuff. Do what you love and what interests you. Make things and take risks. Don’t do it foolishly but also don’t let the fear of uncertainty hold you back. No product is ever perfect, ship early and iterate. Use your skills to have the biggest impact possible. With it all, find a way to give back. Keep pushing ahead and don’t give up.
