This coming Monday I’ll be speaking on a panel entitled “The Evangelist in You” along with a few other “technology evangelists.” For a little background on what a technology evangelist might be, read this post from Guy Kawasaki (who is keynoting the event), who’s basically the father of evangelism. By the way, if you’ve gotten this far and you’re looking for Jim Bakker references, or wondering why I’m not talking more about the lord on high, you are in the wrong place.
The event is run by the Global Network of Technology Evangelists (GNoTE), and I’m apparently the last guy on the panels to blog about it – sorry, been busy this week. While I’ve met a few of the other panelists before (Guy, Buzz Bruggeman, Rafe Needleman, and Jeff Sandquist), I’m looking forward to meeting a few who I know by blog and reputation alone (including Anil Dash, Frederic Lucas, and even Jeremy Zawodny, the #1 Jeremy on the Internet and therefore my archnemesis).
I’m excited to do this event with this esteemed crew. Hopefully I bring a different voice to the table, as, with the exception of Guy, I think I’m the only other person there who has done evangelism for a consumer product (the Slingbox). I believe it’ll be a great event to attend, especially for anyone out there who thinks they have an “evangelist inside” and want to hear our tales.
Registration is $70 (cheaper for members, but really, if you are a member, you probably already know about the event, right?). Click here to sign up.
