Where to find me, first half of 2009

News from Google

Here’s the speaking/travel that I’m expecting to do in early 2009:

January 17-22, 2009: My wife and I journeyed to Washington D.C. to see the Presidential inauguration. It was very cold.

February 4-7, 2009: I just attended the TED conference down in Long Beach. It was pretty amazing. I got to pick Bill Gates’ brain on his foundation’s criteria for what to fund, and to talk to a man who had a near-death experience about a year ago and how it changed his life. The speakers were top notch too. If I get a chance, I may write more about TED later.

February 10-12, 2009: I’ll be at the SMX West conference this week. Don’t miss my session on “Ask the Search Engines” on Thursday, Feb. 12 — trust me. Looks like you can still register.

March 11-13, 2009: PubCon will be in Austin, and I’ll be doing a keynote (including Q&A) on Thursday, March 12th. Registration for PubCon is still open too.

March 13-17-ish, 2009: I’ve never been to South by Southwest , so I’m planning to attend that (it’s also in Austin, right after PubCon). Right now I’m not planning to speak, just to attend the “Interactive” part.

May 30, 2009: I’ll be back at WordCamp in San Francisco.

June 2-3, 2009: I’m not 100% committed to speaking at SMX Advanced, but I’m leaning toward it.

July 19-23, 2009: On July 22nd I’ll be speaking in Boston on the Industry Track of the Special Interest Group on Information Retrieval (SIGIR).

I’m not exactly sure how I backed into this much speaking/travel in 2009, but that’s how things are shaping up right now.
