So. Sunday March 10th (which happens to be the day after my 39th birthday) is shaping up to be a pretty freaking fabulous day. For one thing, my dream of being in the same room with Rachel Maddow will finally be realized as she is speaking at SXSWi that afternoon. Oh, sure, I’ll have to share her attention with 7,000 other people, but I’m sure she will be able to sense my adoration and idol worship radiating from 30 rows back.
But that’s not all that is happening. As if my day could not get any better–I am also being honored by the SXSWi community with a Dewey Winburne Community Service Award that night! Me and nine other people from around the world are getting recognized for using digital media to help other people. Which is…AWESOME. Because the only thing better than getting to do what you really love for a living, is being honored for it.
The Dewey Winburne Community Service Awards are free, and open to the public. No SXSWi badge is require to attend. So please DO come if you can and meet some super cool people who use their technology powers to combat the Forces of Evil!
Tickets to the Dewey Awards are FREE–and no SXSW badge is required to attend. But you do need to register at Eventbrite: GO THERE NOW!
