Just watched the movie "The Truman Show" (Jim Carrey) on HBO.
The story is interesting. Truman live in a TV show, from the first day he was born. Everyone thing and people around Truman are props and actors, Truman doesn't know that. The TV show was live on TV, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Startupweekend like a game, but is so real. The goal is to create a startup in 54 hours, like Social shout out and Find middle.
In real life, is hard to find someone to sit down with you and work on a real startup business, but at Startupweekend is much easier. Is easier to work with other people, even you just know him/her for the first time. They have join in the game and allocated their time for the 2.5 days.
When the game finish, you can't even get a few hours time in the real life.
