PDF 2007 Conference

Posted by Scott on Mar 17th, 2007

No, this has nothing to do with Adobe’s document format. I’m talking about the Personal Democracy Forum, being held at Pace University in New York City. I’ll be there on Friday, May 18. The theme of the conference is something I’m becoming significantly involved in – the impact of technology in politics, grassroots activism, and elections.

I’m particularly looking forward to attending the presentations by Seth Godin and Craig Newmark. Political blogging is certainly playing a huge role in politics these days, but I’m less interested in that than I am in the more general aspects of community building and the nuts-and-bolts methods of leveraging software to empower motivated grassroots groups. It should be really interesting.

Upcoming Ruby Conference in New York City

Posted by Scott on Feb 4th, 2007

I discovered via the awesome blog of Amy Hoy that there is a conference being planned in NYC by the New York City Ruby Brigade. The Gotham Ruby Conference is scheduled for April 21, 2007. I’m a bit disappointed that I won’t be making it to RailsConf this year, so I’m very certain I can make this one instead to get my conference-fix.
