I have some weeks where I wake up and realize there is a speaking engagement almost every day. This is one of them.
Last night was TechStars – The FeedBurner Story. This was part of Google Day at TechStars. I was on a panel with Dick Costolo and Rick Klau telling the FeedBurner story (and helping Rick be Dick’s straight man.)
Tonight is a TiE Rockies event titled "Funding Your Business in Hard Times" I’m on a panel with Vipanj Patel (iSherpa), Mike Devery (Silicon Valley Bank), and Dan Caruso (BearEquity / Zayo Group) that is being moderated by Catharine Merigold (Vista Ventures). The event is happening tonight at the PPA Event Center in Denver from 5:30pm – 8:30pm.
Tomorrow is more TechStars – The NewsGator Story. This is part of Microsoft Day at TechStars. I expect I’ll mostly be taunting JB Holston and Greg Reinacker this time.
Thursday is the CSIA Apex Awards event. This is a great event for Colorado software / Internet execs and entrepreneurs – the nominee list is long and impressive. A dozen awards are given out and copious network occurs. The event takes place at the EXDO Event Center from 5pm – 9pm.
On Saturday I’m in Boston at my 20th MIT Sloan School Reunion. Actually, I’m going to be spending most of the weekend at Wellesley at my wife Amy’s 20th college reunion. Er – I’ll probably just be hanging out in Boston, Cambridge, and Wellesley with a bunch of friends playing hooky from most of the reunions. I am – however – involved in a bunch of stuff during the day on Saturday including a speech from 10am – 11am as part of the Reunion Back to the Classroom series titled "Software Innovation – Do You Think The Last 20 Years Were Exciting? The Next 20 Years Will Blow Your Mind."
Yeah – that’s a lot. No talks / panels / speeches / lectures / events next week. If you are interested, please come to the TiE Rockies event tonight or the CSIA Apex Awards event on Thursday night. While the TechStars events are closed to TechStars members only, there will be video of some of them up on the TechStars Community site. And – I’ll put up the slides from my MIT presentation on this site.
