Busy Year

My schedule is looking daunting this year. Never have I traveled as much as I have since going full time with b5media, and the schedule doesn’t look to be getting better. I enjoy traveling, don’t get me wrong. I’m excited about the opportunities that I’ve been given. It’s just… alot.

Next weekend, we have the Maryland bloggers meetup at Red Brick Station in White March. Come on out on March 31st and meet some local bloggers, including a large b5media contingent. Details at Upcoming.org where I’m asking that you RSVP so we know how many people to expect. Red Brick Station is a local microbrewery that makes fantastic beer in a very laid back restaurantish environment.

In two weeks, I’ll be heading up to Toronto for a set of meetings. Darren will be back in town and Christina will be flying up from Texas. I’m hoping to meet David Kindervater and maybe finally get to meet Rick, one of b5media’s VCs. Who knows.

On April 11th, I’ll be flying back from Toronto directly into Washington, DC where I’ll be presenting WordPress that evening to the DC PHP Developer’s group. The meeting has been moved to the Martin Luther King Jr Library at the corner of 9th and G st in Northwest. Come on out if you’re local.

I’m home, then, until May 30th and 31st when I’ll be in Toronto again. This time for the Mesh Conference, Canada’s premiere Web 2.0 conference.

July 21st and 22nd, I’ll be back to the Bay Area where I’ll be attending WordCamp 2007. Details on venue and official RSVP list not yet released – but b5media will be there. :)

In August, it will be back to the west coast – this time to Seattle for Gnomedex 7.0. You might recall I posted how I wanted to go to this. Well, I’ll be attending. Never been to the Emerald City, so this should be fun.

In September, I’m locked in as a panelist at Secure Development World in Alexandria, VA. This should be fun as I’ve never been a panelist before. My role is an advocate for open source development.

b5media is sponsoring a big event in October that I’m not at liberty to speak of yet. But it looks like… Miami? :)

November 5-10 is looking to be a crazy few days as I’ll be back at Ad:Tech NYC and then out to Blog World Expo in Las Vegas. Not sure how insane that trip will be yet, but hopefully that will be it for 2007.
