The good news is I won’t be so hard to find in 2010 (well hopefully). After a year traveling as a global volunteer, I’m in New Orleans (to stay) and am rolling out the red carpet for friends to come visit me and let me show them what lured this Pittsburgh, Boston, Los Angeles girl (with a few stops before, after, and in between) to New Orleans.
As I did in 2009, I’ll build out this calendar as the year goes along. But let’s start simple.
1-25 – New Orleans, Louisiana. (Wow, that feels good to write). To see why the simplicity warms my heart, see my 2009 travel schedule.
26- 2/2 – World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland as the MySpace & Wall St. Journal Citizen Journalist.
Why leave New Orleans? Election, Super Bowl, Mardi Gras!
1-3 New Orleans, LA. Moving into a new place in the French Quarter!
3-4 Austin, TX for Rise Austin. Panel on “Tech Tools for Social Good.”
4-11 Los Angeles, CA to speak at CalTech on “Tech Tools for Social Good.”
11-22 Austin, TX for SXSW both Interactive and Music. During Interactive I’ll be on a panel called “Techies Unite for Haiti: CrisisCamp.” I’m also on the Microsoft BizSpark Accelerator Board, a Nokia evangelist and hosting 3 salons for PGi in the Frost Building featuring Women in Tech, Southeast Tech Communities and a book signing by Brian Solis hosted by Gary Vaynerchuk.
22-31 – New Orleans, LA (trying to stay for a minute, soak in my new home and all).
21 – Pittsburgh, PA to give a cum laude speech at Shady Side Academy, my alma mater.
