Headlines for Sunday:
|A||X||Write about brain drain for On Campus|
- EDUCATION. Jan 7, afternoon. Who else is passionate about teaching
and education? What do we need? How can we make things better? Audience: teachers and other people who have good ideas or can volunteer to help. So far: Butch
- GEEKETTES SPEAK. Jan 7, evening. Let's talk about what it's like to
be female in technology and other fields. (And swap tips on what to do with pesky people who hit on you! ;) ) We can also brainstorm Charo's summer camp. =) Audience: Women. Newbie women particularly welcome--good opportunity to get to know other people and feel more comfortable in PLUG, for example. It really helps. Guys will stay in another area and play games or chat. (Should ask someone to bring gaming console.)
- MAKING A DIFFERENCE. Jan 14. Help me figure out how I can make a
difference in the Philippines all the way from Canada. Tell me how you want to make a difference in 2006. (Who knows? Maybe I can help.) Audience: Anyone who wants to talk to me before I go off to Canada. So far: Zak
I want to get together with other people who are passionate about these topics. It's not going to be a big party where you might get to relax, eat food, and talk to three or four people, but rather something where we'll all tackle a problem and come up with ways we can help solve it.
- OPEN SOURCE DEVELOPMENT. Jan 14, afternoon. Who's working on what?
What do we need to do in order to get more people to contribute to open source? How can people get started? What can we do to make open source development more visible? Audience: Open source developers and people who want to contribute to open source in 2006.
Totally awesome. =)
I'm getting deeper into social bookmarking and tagging because that seems to be what I can do for research, but I'm not sure if that's how I personally can make the most difference. How can I solve real problems?
QUARTER-LIFE CRISIS: Best practices for twenty-somethings
- Time management - Money management - Career management - 2005 review, 2006 planning
Here's the idea: if you're a twenty-something (or near it) figuring out life for the first time, come. If you've figured out one or two of these issues and you want to share your insights, come no matter how young/old you are. We twenty-somethings will ask questions, talk about our fears, and share our current practices in the hope of walking away with one or two things we can use to improve our lives. Non-twenty-somethings can comment on our practices, share their experiences, and give suggestions. I think we'll have great personal growth all around. =)
This will be in Manila when I go home. Probably at my house, too. My availability: Dec 19 - Jan 19.
