Just some quick updates regarding An Event Apart as we transition from our just-finished 2012 schedule to the upcoming 2013 schedule.
If you’re interested in joining us in 2013, you can check out the event nearest you…or maybe the event being held where you’ve always wanted to go! If you have your eye on Atlanta, bear in mind that the Early Bird rate (which saves you $100) ends on Christmas Eve, so don’t wait too much longer. And if you were waiting for a detailed schedule in either San Diego or Boston before deciding to register, well, your wait is over. More schedules will be released as the shows get closer.
I don’t talk very much about An Event Apart, and I probably talk about it far less than I should. I blame that on the show itself, partly. Our last show of 2012, held at the opulent Palace Hotel in San Francisco, is now three weeks behind us and I’m still struck a little bit speechless by another year of fantastic attendees and speakers. The fundamental nature of what we’ve created together really is overwhelming to me, in the best possible way. Thank you, one and all, for making that possible.
To celebrate the year just past as well as the year to come, we’ve once again made a donation to CFY (formerly Computers For Youth) to help advance their efforts to bring digital literacy and access to impoverished elementary school students. They’ve already seen great improvements in schools where they operate, and we’re thrilled to support their work. If you’d like to support them as well, please do, or take a moment in all the end-of-year rush and lend some aid to the charity that speaks most clearly to you.
