Like the groundhog crawling out from his hole, I seem to be doing a lot more public speaking / appearances in the last couple months. And I’ve got a slew of stuff coming up in the next week:
Saturday night at 8:00, I’m the guest monologuist for Dallas Comedy House’s Megaphone Show. I’ll be telling some seedy stories from my bachelor days in Dallas and then the pros will be improvising scenes inspired by them. It’ll be a great time. I’m also improvising in the 10:00 PM Maestro show. Both shows are $10– get your tickets here. I’m beyond excited about this — I’ll guarantee a good time.
On Monday at 1 PM, I’ll be guest-hosting the Innovation at Work Radio Show on CNN AM 1190. I met host Winston Edmondson as a result of my Ignite Dallas speaking gig. We hit it off and he’s since become a PegNews content partner and had me on the show to talk about our launch. We’d batted around the idea of me occasionally guest-hosting and he’s giving me my first shot Monday. I’ll be chatting with the folks from Dallas Startup Weekend about this year’s event. Tune in or catch the stream online.
Monday at 5 PM, I’ll be appearing on a panel for The Media Club of North Texas with a handful of other local mediati from The Dallas Morning News, D Magazine, KERA and the like trying to hash out what the future looks like…
And then on Friday at 3 PM I’ll be speaking at the Schieffer School of Journalism at Texas Christian University. (This was preempted earlier by The Great Blizzard of 2010. I’ll be giving my preso on why I think all the turmoil in the media biz will, eventually, be good for local journalism and then joining in on a panel on what J-schools should be teaching their students now.
