About

At the FailCon, Sydney conference, held as part of the Vivid Festival of Ideas, an audience of technology entrepreneurs, investors, developers, designers and innovators came together to study their own and others’ failures as a way of preparing for success.

At the end of the day it was realised that we needed a place to share our stories of failure – of confusion, challenge – and eventual success. And in the spirit of action – inspired by Pollenizer’s Mick Liubinskas, we set about to remedy this situation. Out of this #flearn was born – a shared blog space designed to share our failure stories.
