Here is what you need every day when you leave wherever it is your are staying:
- Hand Sanitizer or hand wipes, use them liberally
- good earplugs, get them from earlove (best) or earpeace (better), expando foam ones (meh). Last year I found a party that was giving out the earpeace ones.
- comfortable shoes.
- light-weight and compact layers, the weather can change. refill-able water bottle
- EXTRA POWER - and plug-in whenever you can. I got a little extra power pack for my iphone, called Gum (it’s on sale!), not one of those cases, this just plugs in, then you can stash it.
- Whatever you like to take for headaches.
- A snackbar, granolar bar type thing for when you really want to get to another session but are also really hungry.
I also like to start the day with a bottle of coconut water.
Two other tips:
- Never miss an opportunity to charge up
- Never pass a bathroom without a line (unless you’ve just gone to the bathroom)
I’m on SXSW Social and on Sched which works better and has unofficial events listed and lets you share your schedule, like this!
After seven years with a truly wonderful group of people at CivicActions, I’ve decided to leave the firm for a position at EnergySavvy, a Seattle company that provides software solutions to utility companies and government energy efficiency programs.
Working with the team at CivicActions, and the broader nonprofit technology and Drupal communities was an experience that shaped my life, not just my career. I can look back at so many amazing , and successful events: creating and organizing numerous DrupalCamps, sharing knowledge at DrupalCons in North America and Europe, contributing to NTEN’s Nonprofit Technology Conference, and the Web Of Change. I had the honor to work with wonderful clients, from the New York and Montana Leagues of Conservation Voters early in my tenure, to the Center For Reproductive Rights, The Smithsonian Institute, Congress For the New Urbanism, YouthBuild USA and so many others.
My role at EnergySavvy has me using my Scrum Master skills to deliver our product, and enhancements to it for a number of our clients around the country. it’s exciting to be working in a sector with so much growth potential and being able to see the direct impact that our software has for both our customers - the energy efficiency programs - and the thousands of homeowners who unlock the energy savings potential of retrofit work because of it.
