On the Road Again

garage.jpgI’ve got an action-packed couple of weeks coming up, starting with a trip to San Francisco on Sunday evening. I will be speaking at the CSC Leading Edge Forum on Monday and then visiting with VCs and startups at Alsop Louis Partners on Tuesday. Before heading home I will also make a stop at Linden Lab.

After resting at home for a day, and then Trick-or-Treating with my kids (at least with the ones who are still young enough to want to do this) I will take a deep breath and board a red-eye flight to Washington Dulles. I will leap off of the plane as fast as I can, board one of those infernal inter-terminal buses at Dulles, get my luggage and my car, and then high-tail it over to Reston, Virginia and the New-New Internet conference. Dion Hinchcliffe will chat with Peter Coffee and I on the subject of “Defining the business potential for Web 2.0.”

I’ll take another breath and will then head into DC for a meeting with the Department of Homeland Security, and that will do it for the day.

Friday, I will talk to the folks at Unity08 and will also hang out at Startup Weekend DC for a while.

Over the weekend I will visit with my wife’s family in Maryland and then head up to Pennsylvania. I will try to see my mom in York while I’m there.

The following week will be equally action-packed, with visits to a number of large corporations and some startups, and a special AWS event in the city. I’ll fly home Thursday night.

I still have a little bit of open time on my DC / PA agenda. Please feel free to book some of my time if you would like. I also have some very short trips to Boston, San Francisco, and New Mexico later in the month and you are welcome to book some of my time there as well.

Whew!
