spring travel plans


Every year I seem to have two "crunch" times for back-to-back travel commitments--early spring, and late fall. This year is shaping up to be no exception. On the books for the next two months:

  • SXSW/Interactive in Austin, March 10-14. I love Austin, and I love SXSW, so this should be fun. Speaking on one panel on Saturday morning, moderating another...and then I get to just relax and enjoy the rest of the event
  • Back to Rochester for a week, March 22-28, along with the kids. Visiting family and friends, meeting with colleagues, and participating in a friend's dissertation defense (I'm her outside committee member). Oh--and celebrating Weez's wonderful news!
  • NSF ITWF PI conference (transation: National Science Foundation's "Information Technology WorkForce" program meeting for Principal Investigators) in Durham April 2-4
  • NSF site visit of the National Center for Women & Information Technology in Boulder, CO, April 5

I was also supposed to attend an event in Santa Barbara, but it conflicts with the PI meeting. :( And I'm cancelling a commitment to speak at a KM conference in DC in April, because the travel is just too hard on all of us here in the Lawley household. And because I'm hosting this year's Social Computing symposium here at MSR, and the planning will probably be taking up a good bit of time at that point.

Not as bad as some spring travel stints I've had, but busy enough that I'll be glad when it's over.


I'll see you at the panel you're moderating--looks really interesting!

Oh, yes. We must celebrate.

Not only are plans to look HOT in April proceding, the secondary plan of total world domination is also making headway...Did I type that out loud?

Liz - was sorry to not see you at Etech, as I was looking forward to meeting you f2f. I won't be at sxsw, though it always sounds intriguing and fun.

Have fun on your travels, and I'd still like to chat sometime about getting you over to speak here at UW before the end of the academic year (which for us isn't till mid-June).

And I'd love a chance to attend the MS social computing symposium - it's a topic I'm more and more enmeshed in here at UW and inter-institutionally.
