Ultimate pushup videos / ffMASSIVE conference at SXSW


We’re now gearing up for the 2015 version of ffMASSIVE, ffVC’s annual conference as part of SXSW.  If you’d like to participate as a sponsor or in some other capacity, definitely please contact my colleague Katie Frankel, katie(at) ! 

Last year at ffMASSIVE, we held an on-stage pushup contest and Indiegogo fundraiser.  All proceeds went to Virtual Enterprises International.  VEI is an in-school, live, global business simulation that offers students the development of skills in entrepreneurship, communication, personal finance, and technology.  I was happy to see a great group of contestants last time, below.  I’d love to see them repeat; details to come if we hold another pushup challenge.

Thanks to everyone again for participating!  To avoid embarrassing anyone, I will refrain from reporting who won.

Lastly, the best example of both strength and grace that I’ve found is Simonster:
