naturedance: my foot, in my boot, on Mount Rainier (Default)
I’ve finally admitted to myself that I need a single place to archive online all of my conference presentations, workshops, tutorial materials and such.

So I've set up Adele: Rolling in the Geeks at adeleshakal.com.

If you need to create a poster presentation for a conference, read this first.

I'll be attending the EDUCAUSE Western Regional conference in San Francisco March 31 - April 2. I should be arriving in time for lunch on Monday, and am leaving early afternoon on Wednesday.

I'm considering organizing a Birds of a Feather session for Project Managers doing Google Apps for Education rollouts... I've never been to an EDUCAUSE conference before, so I'm not sure how those are done, but it can't be all that different from LISA, right?

My co-workers Brendan Bellina and Will Norris are each giving presentations... [livejournal.com profile] rowan_redbeard, did you say you were giving one, too?

SCaLE 6x, the Southern California Linux Expo, is this Friday, Saturday and Sunday. On Friday there's a one-day miniconference on Women in Open Source, and another on Open Source in Education, and yet another on Open Source in Health Care.

SCaLE 6x also just added two LOPSA training classes for Friday! Open-Source Email Systems: One Approach to Spam Fighting, and Introduction to Virtualization on Linux. I adore LOPSA.

My posts about last year's SCaLE are here and here and here.

I'll be helping out with the Women's miniconf on Friday, and I'll be working the registration desk on Saturday. Come on by and say hello!

If I weren't attending and helping out with the SCaLE conference, I'd be attending the 24/7 DIY Media Summit that is happening this weekend. There are a bunch of different academic panel and workshop tracks, but there are also screenings open to the public.

Political commentary, activist media, independent arts, machinima, US media vidding, video blogging, anime music videos... and some of the most fabulous people presenting, curating, and discussing and receptioning about emerging patterns as well as the history of these new media... what's not to love?

http://www.video24-7.org/ has complete info.

I'll probably also wind up prowling around [livejournal.com profile] diyvideo later, which has information on some of the webcasts associated with that conference.

And if I ever get more free time (ahahaha, shut up) this note is to remind myself to prowl around in the videos on In Media Res.

I wish I could be in two places at once.

I won't be attending this one, but I did want to spread the word: http://shesgeeky.org/

At the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, CA. It starts at noon on Monday, October 22, and goes 'til 6pm on Tuesday October 23. Sounds quite nifty!
