Maybe it’s because I’ve been watching too much TV lately–okay, I know I’ve been watching too much TV lately (!)–but I feel like this phase of my life is sort of like coming to the end of a movie. Now that it’s over, I’m already looking toward the next thing only I have no idea what it is. I just know that I want it to be completely different.
For the past three years, I’ve helped run a weeklong conference here in Atlanta called Digital Atlanta. I was one of the original organizers/Director of Programming and have watched it grow into a pretty great event over that time. Each year, we’ve pulled it off and had anywhere between 50-75 events over a five-day period. This past year, we held the event in Atlantic Station so attendees weren’t dashing all over the city to attend sessions. It worked out really well and was our best year in terms of sponsorship and attendance.
However, all good things must come to an end and I felt like it was time to move on and try something new. The good news is that I’m handing Digital Atlanta’s programming off to some really qualified people and I know they will do a great job turning it into something even bigger and better.
In the meantime, I’m taking a short sabbatical to hang out with my family, catch up on some writing, and refocus my lens.
Stay tuned and if you have any interesting proposals or ideas for me, get in touch!read more
