I use Twitter too much. I basically use it as an overflow for my brain in order to maintain some consistent history of links that I like and thing that I thought were funny.
But Twitter is really bad if you want to remember something that happened over a week ago, so I’ve started using Twitter Tools to archive my tweets in something hat is a little easier to figure out.
Thank you so much to everyone who came out and voted for my information visualization presentation at the MIX conference. I was among ten happy winners.
So I wanted to take a moment and let everyone know that I’ll be in three different cities over the next 4 months for conferences, so if anyone wants a “tweet-up“, I’m more than happy to get together and talk. I love meeting new people and I love to pay for beers (although you’ll probably be limited to something cheap due to budget constraints).
Anyway, I’ll be in the following places over the coming months.
CPAC – Marriott Wardman Park Hotel, Washington D.C.
February 18th, 3:00 PM
I’ll be speaking as a panelist on:
Blogging, Tweeting and Other Funny Words That Can Win Elections – Maryland Ballroom
Megan Barth, RedCounty.com
David All, David All Group
Matthias Shapiro, PoliticalMathBlog.com
Michelle Oddis, Human Events
Moderator: Dr. Melissa Clouthier, MelissaClouthier.com and Take That Radio
I’ve met David All, who is a particularly sharp mind and well worth your time. And Melissa Clouthier is clearly a cyborg with a tweeting application wired directly into her cerebral cortex.
MIX – Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas, NV
I’ll be speaking on information visualization and how Silverlight makes it easier and more effective. I might be pressed for time on this one because MIX is my big conference for meeting all the awesome geeks who don’t live near me.
APEE – Ceasars’ Palace, Las Vegas, NV
I’ll be speaking on a panel about educating people on economic concepts with video. Also, I love Vegas.
Google I/O – Moscone Center, San Fransisco, CA
May 18 – 20
I won’t be speaking, but I’ll be learning a great deal about Android development (one of my many, many hobbies).
In any case, if you’d like to meet up with me and talk about politics or stats or just yell at me for something I said while I’m at any of these conferences, send me an e-mail (in the About page) and let’s do it.
