I know it’s still months and months away, but you know what I’m excited about? Alt Summit!!!
If you’ve never heard of it, here’s the 411: it’s a conference about design blogging. If you are into design and social media, you will LOVE it! It’s held in Salt Lake City during the Sundance Film Festival and it’s pretty much rad all the way around. Last year, the speakers were out of site — the keynote panel was made up of Maxwell from Apartment Therapy, Grace from Design*Sponge, Jean from NotCot and Heather from Dooce. (I know!) This year, it’s going to be equally impressive.
Kirtsy helps organize and host Alt Summit, and as a founder of Kirtsy, my assignment is to work with a team to put together the speaking topics and speaker list. It’s basically the funnest job ever. My team has received loads of great ideas and suggestions for panels this year, and we attempted to close our Call for Speakers last month. But then we heard from like one million of you that August was too crazy and you missed the deadline. Then we remembered how crazy our own August was and totally agreed with you. So. I’ve got some good news:
The Call For Speakers and Session Ideas has been extended. Best news ever! You have until the end of September to get your ideas and proposals in. You can email them to: firstname.lastname@example.org — we can’t wait to see what you send.
P.S. — Early bird registration is open. Yay! If you’re chosen as a speaker, your registration will be fully refunded, so don’t wait to grab your spot.
