Here are a few New York events that I'm thinking about attending, definitely attending, and where I'll be speaking in the next couple of months.

Where I'm speaking:

May 20, 2010
"A Conversation About Social Media" Discussion Lead
Mediabistro Circus | New York, NY

I'm also most likely submitting a proposal to Web 2.0 Expo New York and ad tech New York, so keep your fingers crossed for me.

Events I'm definitely attending:

April 15 -16 - The 99% Conference
The goal of the 99% Conference is to shift the focus from idea generation to idea execution - providing road-tested insights on how to make your ideas happen. We don't want to give you more ideas, we want to empower you to make good on the ones you've got. Speakers include: Jack Dorsey, Creator & Co-Founder, Twitter; John Maeda, President, Rhode Island School of Design; and more.
