I’m really pleased and excited to announce that I’ll be keynoting at the Web Directions Unplugged conference here in Seattle, May 12-13 2011. I’ve spoken at a couple of Web Directions conferences before, both North and South, and I’m happy to see they’re bringing the party to my home town; in fact, I think this marks the first time I’ll be speaking at a public event in Seattle! (I know, shocking, since I’ve been speaking at public events for around 15 years; but I can’t remember anything large than Microsoft MVP events that I’ve spoken at here at home).
It will be a busy week for me, since I’ll have to rush home from Google IO, but I’ve always been impressed with the speakers and the audience at the Web Directions events*, and I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity.
* In fact, one of my favorite speaking engagements was at Web Directions South 2007. Great crowd, great location (I love Sydney), and great speakers (the other ones, I mean).
