This was my second year attending the Lean Startup Conference. Last year I was an attendee, and this year I was honored to have been selected as a speaker. I’ll admit that having my own dedicated timeslot (at 2:30pm the final day of the conference) meant I was never completely in “learner” mode, in the[…]
This past weekend I attended the Global Startup Battle at Boulder Startup Weekend. I attended the weekend to see how the mentors (a team of heavy hitters from different industries) would guide the teams to validate their ideas and identify viable business models. Perhaps I should have had an inkling that that wasn’t their focus[…]
It’s been several years since I was doing a lot of public speaking as part of my role at Worldways Social Marketing. I’m now prepared to share my insights on intrapreneurship and innovation with others.
Back in a post last August, I asked you, my blog readers and twitter followers, to vote for my SxSW proposal: “Forging your Ideal Career”. And you listened! Today I’m very happy to announce that I will be speaking at the 2010 South By Southwest Interactive Festival. As I mentioned back in the blog post,[…]
Earlier this week I attended at the Nonprofit Technology Conference in San Francisco, CA. As a technologist, I attend several conferences a year (in the past 6 months, I’ve attended the Thin Air Summit, Web Directions North, WordCamp Denver, South By Southwest, and now NTC.)

RI_comp_2 Originally uploaded by Resource Interactive I just came across this old photo from the iCitizen conference held by Resource Interactive last May. I’m working the social media cafe, speaking with David Griner and another conference attendee about lifestreaming. We discussed wordpress, tumblr, flickr, twitter and digsby.
As I mentioned, I’d been speaking with some of my colleagues at Resource Interactive about a pitch for SxSW. Lara Lebeiko had the idea of speaking about women in the IT field. I have my notes from one of our phone conversations, where she said she did not want it to be a feminazi panel[…]
Resource Interactive is throwing an idea into the SxSW panel pool for 2009. I’d been weighing in on the topic, and am now actually listed as the presenter! So go vote! Chicks Digg IT: How Women are Influencing the Future of Social Media Men and women run on different OS. Just as Apple has surged[…]
As always, some of the best outcomes from an event are a result of the interaction with other delegates. There is something special about a group of actively engaged, newly informed individuals. Going into PodCamp Ohio, I hadn’t been sure about the people I would meet. I wasn’t a podcaster, would I have things to[…]
