Yeah Yeah, I know…..I haven’t blogged in a while…but I have news! I will be speaking at two WordCamps (thus far)!
First, I am the keynote speaker for WordCamp San Antonio. I am honored to have the opportunity to speak at this event. It was a ton of fun last year, and I strongly recommend checking it out. The venue is awesome, and the people were amazing.
San Antonio was a town I used to live in during my High School days. My memories from back then are a mixed bag, but I had the opportunity to spend more time in San Antonio for the past two years. The city has certainly changed!
It is an amazing city, with a lot of great food (TACOS!), very friendly people, and a lot of great things to do. WordCamp San Antonio happens on September 30th, and October 1st.
I am proud to note that several members from Pressable are participating with the organization of this event. The team has a strong sense of responsibility to the WordPress Community, and we feel we have the responsibility in giving back by spending their free time organizing this great event.
Second, I will be a speaker at WordCamp Philly! I have always loved WordCamp-ing in Philly. WordCamp US happened there for the past two years, and I went to the local WordCamp Philly the year before that. Some of my favorite people in the world live in Philly, and they always participate in the local WordCamp, so I can’t wait to see them. The Philly WordCamp speaker lineup is very impressive, and I suspect this event will be a “must-see” for those in the area. It will be on October 28th and 29th. I highly recommend checking WordCamp Philly out.
Wow, I can’t believe Chris Cornell is gone! Soundgarden was one of my favorite bands when I was in middle school/junior high. I bought three copies of ‘superunknown,’ which is still one of my favorite albums of all time.
Here is the last time Spoonman was performed live, the night Chris passed away:
I was a part of the speaker panel at the end of WordCamp San Antonio, which was pretty cool! There’s a lot of really amazing WordPress folks in San Antonio and it was cool to share the stage with these fine folks. I don’t talk a whole lot but I share the stage with my fellow colleagues Zach and Claudia from Pressable, as well as notable speakers. It was a lot of fun!
Video comes from WordPress.tv which has a ton of great WordCamp talks. I highly recommend it for folks learning WordPress.
I love how the animation is getting an update, according to the single page they’ve posted on the web site. Hopefully Damon Albarn will tour with the new album and I will get to see him again (I’ve seen Gorillaz three times, but I’ve never seen Blur. 🙁 ).
