lessons from this week…

I received 6 emails for not blogging recently. Bleh.

My lesson of the week is that strep throat + bronchitis is a deadly combination and definitely requires a doctor visit. I am sick, in bed and sweating profusely. The only creative thoughts that have emerged from my head involve figuring out how to get food without fainting. This is not a recordable experience.

Instead, let me share with you the events that i would’ve attended if i were healthy so that you may attend without me since they all involve good people:

– CMU West Speaker Series: The New Phenomenon of “Enabled Social Networks:” Social, Commercial, and Political/Civic Implications
BlogOn 2004 – The Business of Social Media
– Ripple Effect’s Connect For (fundraiser for disadvantaged youth and Village Reach)
Monkey vs. Robot party at Cellspace

Enjoy and perhaps i will have more interesting things to say shortly.
