Where I’ll Be In 2009 Redux

 My other car is a JETPACK! I made this kickass pic into a piece of even more kickass Facebook flair. Ping me if you want me to send it to you!

Forget the whirlwind. 2009 now feels like someone just strapped a jetpack to my back and flipped the “On” switch without telling me. Problem is…the person who did that? Me!

Here’s the latest rundown with relevant links to all the talks, places, and conferences currently on my schedule.

You know what really rocks tho? A new service call TripIt. Besides helping me track all my travel info in one super easy-to-use spot, TripIt also shows me which of the people I’m linked to will be nearby at the same time. Social networking for travel, which rocks! If nothing else, it helps cut down immensely on all the “You gonna be there? I dunno, YOU gonna be there?” back-and-forth that typically happens in the back channel around events.

You can sign up for TripIt at If you want to add me as a TripIt contact after you join, jump here:
