You know, most of my life I’ve looked forward to the traveling lifestyle. It’s always fun to go and see new things. But it’s exhausting. It’s so nice to be back in my office.
Not so nice is my email. Whew. And my tasks. Double whew.
But, I shouldn’t complain. While I was off skiing last week my coworkers were working nearly around the clock finishing off something cool that you’ll see soon.
I’m not allowed to tell you what is up, but let’s just say that it’s the offspring of what happened here when Amanda Congdon of Rocketboom kissed the Nine Guy.
I do work with some people who just impress the hell out of me. Jeff Sandquist didn’t get the credit he was due for Channel 9 (at least not in our book) but he’s one of those people at Microsoft I’d go to if I wanted to get something done. And, I’m not just kissing up cause he’s my boss. You’ll all see again soon.
Anyway, there’s a lot of things going on. Tons of conferences and geek events are coming through my inbox.
Well, Gaurav Bhatnagar reports that there’ll be a Barcamp in New Delhi, India. That should be well attended! I found a few new Indian tech bloggers linked off of that.
The Podcast Hotel is this week in Seattle. Maryam and I are gonna try to get there.
The Blogger Cruise, in October, going from Florida to Cozumel is gonna be one of the experiences of the year. They can’t take that many people, so don’t miss that!
Microsoft is hosting a Small Business Summit on March 14-17 in Bellevue (it’ll be Webcast too).
Next week I’ll be speaking at the New Communications Forum in Palo Alto. Lots of interesting speakers in the PR, marketing, blog worlds. I’ll also be speaking in New York at the Search Engine Strategies Conference and Expo. Whew.
The Blog Business Summit is going to Los Angeles on March 16 for a seminar on the essentials of business blogging.
Lest we forget that Mashup Camp is going on right now (Memeorandum has a bunch of reports). I was supposed to go to that but begged out cause my schedule is just too nutty.
Can we pack anymore events into a month? Got any other events coming up that we should be aware of?
