hey all you milwaukeeians. you should go to this:
it’s an un-conference. more of a networking based conference.. where more active participation is encouraged. it’s not just for nerds. (although it does seem to appeal to the nerdy-types… but also lots of creative-types… i consider creative-types a different type of nerd… but i guess you could say that about any particular group. ‘nerd’ is a very diverse term in my eyes. but i digress) and it’s free. just go to the barCampMilwaukee website and sign up. you can learn more about the whole concept of a ‘bar camp’ as well.
i’m planning on attending some graphic design/ web design type sessions. and also plan on leading a “photo walk” around downtown milwaukee. so come join the fun (and get a free tshirt! yeah!)
this morning i attended a ‘techCafe’ talk about adobe stuff… lead by ryan stewart. and for once, i was in a place where i wasn’t the only person twittering during the event. i also met several people who are also involved with the barCampMKE…. so that was pretty cool to be able to add faces/names/voices to their screen names/icons/posts.
and in completely unrelated news… i finally made one of those “facebook badges”… so if you’re not my friend on facebook… go add me
ok. that’s all for now. i’ve gotta get ready for my gig tonight. *waves*
it suddenly got really dark outside. aaaand there’s thunder. yea! now i’m even more excited that i have a “window cubicle” and can look out the window from my desk. anyone else love storms as much as i do?
EDIT: aaaaaand suddenly the sky’s just open up on us. hah! my office has a tin roof.. so it sounds more like 1lb hail than raindrops falling… which is always a fun noise to talk over
