Travis Smith: my resume, bio and photos back to the main blog page

Susie’s going to be speaking at BlogHer on Friday, 9 to 11:30.  If you only go to ONE session at BlogHer, definitely go to So You Have This Crazy Idea.  It’s all about how to build blog sites that engage and build community.

Susie’s going to be covering the technology part of the discussion—the other panelists are a lawyer, a consultant, and an entrepreneur. (Well, take those labels witha grain of salt—none of these women are describable in a single-word!)

Meanwhile, I’m headed to Wikimania in Cambridge, MA, the next weekend Aug. 4-6.  It’s all about building wikis, and also about wiki building.  I find wikis fascinating—I could sit back and watch people build them all day.

But I’m going because there’s a real application for wikis in what many of Hop Studios’ clients are doing.  And, there’s a great extra-day seminar on Aug. 7 led by Dan Gillmor, which is all about Citizen Journalism, and I’m really looking forward to participate in what’s going on there.  The other bonus is that our new employee Matt Gardner has just moved to Boston and we’ll be able to meet up.

“The sad truth is that most evil is done by people who never make up their minds to be good or evil.”

...who said it?

“Almost every American I know does trade large portions of his life for entertainment, hour by weeknight hour, binge by Saturday binge, Facebook check by Facebook check. I’m one of them. In the course of writing this I’ve watched all 13 episodes of House of Cards and who knows how many more West Wing episodes, and I’ve spent any number of blurred hours falling down internet rabbit holes. All instead of reading, or writing, or working, or spending real time with people I love.”

...who said it?

“Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

...who said it?

“I play with variables constantly.”

...who said it?

“Only the person who has learned Continual Love coming from a heart of Gratitude/Worship can effectively deal with the problem of loneliness.”
