SXSW, ICWSM, and Etech

March is rearing up to be insane and i want to invite you to come along for the ride. At SXSW-Interactive, i will be on a panel about youth on Saturday and doing an on-stage interview with my dear friend and mentor Henry Jenkins on Monday. I am an invited speaker at the International Conference on Weblogs and Social Media and i will be presenting there before rushing off to Etech where i will be doing a keynote on Wednesday currently called “Incantations for Muggles.” These are some pretty huge talks and i’m both terrified and ecstatic. They’re going to force me to sit down and write some new material. Tehehe.

Note: registration deadlines are quickly upon us. Feb 9 is the final discount deadline for SXSW and early registration for Etech ends Feb 5. These events are most fun when friends are present so come join me! (Oh, and for those who wish to howl, Jane will be running werewolf at Etech.)

    wow! you know Henry Jenkins! (I hope I read the sentence correctly). Do you meet with him often? I do epi research in HIV/AIDS and I’m finding that there is a large lifestyle/social/media componet in adressing HIV that for a long time has been ingored. Im trying to meld the two topics together (HIV and media) and I’m reading a lot of his work on social/media concepts. I’m jellous you get to talk to him! : )

  • It always seems that March and May are the worst months for travel for me too. I can’t wait to see you at SXSW and then it is off to Virtual Worlds 2007. Can’t wait to see sand spec … interesting.
