Every few months I like to give people an update on where I expect to be over the next few months. I apologize in advance if I have to decline other speaking invitations, but I’m genuinely trying to travel less and speak less these days to get a better work/life balance. Here are my tentative plans:
This week: In-laws are visiting, so I will be posting less and slower on email.
August 11-15, 2008: I’m planning to attend SIGGRAPH 2008 down in Los Angeles. I haven’t been in 8-9 years, so I want to see what I’ve missed in the computer graphics field and maybe catch up with a few folks from grad school.
Added: November 5-7, 2008: I spoke on a panel at the Web 2.0 summit on the subject of “Preventing Virtual Blight”.
January 19-21-ish, 2009: I don’t have all the details yet, but I’m planning to be in Washington D.C. for the presidential inauguration and maybe an inaugural ball.
February 3-7, 2009: I’ll be down in Long Beach, CA for TED 2009, just to soak up what TED is like as an attendee.
By the way, if this sounds like a lot of stuff to you, just be glad you’re not watching as many conferences as Robert Scoble does on Upcoming:
