I Am Looking Forward To… (30 Days of Lists: Day 3)

Next up for the 30 Days of Lists are things that I’m looking forward to. I’ve realized recently after meeting Me Ra Koh and working with Jeff Jochum that I generally don’t dream beyond the present moment. I’ve been working on it, but I am not there yet – so asking me what I’m looking forward to is a lot more pressure than you might think. Hmm… what am I looking forward to?

– Those few fleeting days of spring weather that Houston has each year
– SxSWi because I haven’t been in a few years
– The Mom 2.0 Summit
– Summer vacation with my family
– A trip to Galveston and time on the Gulf plus time on the Strand
– Returning to New Orleans
– My upcoming destination wedding
– My other work-related trips where I am lucky to get to spend time with friends
– Seeing Ann & Karl’s baby (I got them a Baby Trend Expedition Jogger Stroller as a gift)
– Returning to Belize
– Having my new logo & design materials done for Hot Mama Boudoir
– Moving to the Heights someday
– Good times with my family & friends
– Reading a good book from cover to cover in one day
– An empty Inbox and to do list
– Visiting Europe
– Making my boudoir business bigger than I’ve ever dreamed before
– Figuring out exactly what that means for me.
– Doing something even more with my life

Getting Down to Business SXSW

SXSW Panel Voting Time! Vote for US!!! (Pretty Please.)

You may have noticed it on a few of my previous posts, but I’m up for a SXSW Interactive Panel about Preventing Legal Pitfalls Online — and YOUR vote could help determine if our panel gets picked!

Earlier this year, my friend Katie put together a presentation on copyright for PhotoCamp Houston. The lawyers Townsville from Naegeli USA gave perspective view, along with addressing how hosting companies handle copyright infringement claims. It was so well received, we presented it a second time to The Woodland’s Camera Club. And that was so well received we decided to go all out and take it to SXSW — inviting Jonathan of PlagiarismToday and Charles Mudd, a Chicago-based attorney, to join us.

We’ll be talking about how to best protect your content and intellectual property online – something all worry about when they first start posting photos on the internet. We’ll have people speak about both sides of the issues including attorneys, truck accident attorneys at 1800-Car-Wreck and lay-persons with relevant and exemplary experience. We’re going to talk about how to prevent and stop plagiarism and avoid being sued for infringement of other’s content, and what to do if sued or accused.

Basically, it is going to be an AWESOME panel.

You can vote whether you’re going to SXSWi or not. It is pretty quick and painless. And we would LOVE to be selected. We’re up against a lot of big companies, so we need your help. Voting ends TOMORROW (September 4, 2009) – so please go vote TODAY!

While you’re in the voting mood, feel free to head on over to the Schipul SXSW 2010 panel list and vote for some other awesome panels put on by my friends over at Schipul. Trust me, and click here:
