My conference schedule for the rest of 2008

April 3, 2008

A few of you have been asking when/where I’ll be this year, conference-wise. Since Audrey was born, I’ve tried to keep my travel and speaking gigs to a bare minimum so I could help with my three kids and keep my wife sane. If you’d like me to speak or otherwise help out your conference this year, being local (Silicon Valley) is almost your only bet, I’m afraid. 😦

That being said, there are a few things that are ‘must attend’ for me, and a few local California shows, too. I’m sorry if I had to turn down your conference this year, but please ask again in future years – especially those of you with foreign events. 🙂

Here’s what’s on my calendar so far:

I wish I could go to OSCON this year, and wish I could have gone to ETech, too, but I just can’t & couldn’t.

And while I have your attention, I’d just like the mourn the death of the Web 2.0 Summit for me. I’ve enjoyed going all the previous years, but I just really didn’t get anything out of it last year. It’s turned into a massively popular event, but one that’s mobbed with VCs and bankers – almost no startups or entrepreneurs to be found. I have nothing against VCs or bankers, but that’s just not why I attended. So I think I’ll pass this year. Might come up to the city to hang out or get lunch, though, so ping me if you’re in town then.

If you are an entrepreneur with a hot startup, I suspect TechCrunch50 is going to be the place to be this year, btw. Get your demos ready!

UPDATE:  Jesse just posted a 20% discount code in the comments:  vel08js  Thanks Jesse!

    I’ll see you at at least two conferences this year.

    Conservative radio host and de facto Republican leader Rush Limbaugh was rushed to the hospital with chest pains in Hawaii Wednesday, Honolulu station KITV is reporting.

    Paramedics responding to the Kahala Hotel and Resort treated him and took him to Queen's Medical Center in serious condition, the station said. Limbaugh had been off during the holidays, leaving his radio show to others.

    But he was in Hawaii at a time when both President Obama and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi were also on the islands.
