So on this snark blog – Go Flock Yourself that my buddy Jon Garfunkel sent along has this interesting post asserting that Web 2.0 retards need to read more Tufte. in reference to this picture with notes on flickr. The good news is that is coming to San Jose and San Francisco this month Dec 5-8. About 8 months ago after NTEN I went to Boston just for the workshop because Marty recommended it. Well worth it – you get all of his books and a day long course – Presenting Data and Information.
Three Planetworks this week
We had a great week for Planetwork this week. We had an amazing event in DC with 35 really diverse folks (link to photo)on a Friday Night at Busboys and Poets. Our line up was fantastic with CITI seeking good folks to work for them, and several projects serving the third world. We had a sponsor – Gerry of Net Team contributed $200 to make our evening a success. Karin a lawyer and founder of Our New Evolution did a brilliant job of getting the word out and the next one will be in January.
Yesterday in Boston we had a dinner to explore starting a chapter. Most excitingly Neila and Peggy who were part of the original Planetwork first conference (2000) crew in San Francisco. Deborah Elizabeth Finn, Jon Garfunkel, Aldo Casdiena, and Beth Canter were there.
Wednesday Brian Hamlin (yes there is a relation he is my husband) is hosting Planetwork in the East Bay. There is a great line up.
