I delivered my presentations to about 1,300 people and reached about 35,000 additional viewers online. I didn’t do a lot of big conferences this year (minimizing travel!), but I accepted the occasional invitation. Still… that’s a lot of work, and a lot of reach.

Many of my presentations are externally available at . Please feel free to contact me if you want to find out about other sessions!

Wow. Without really planning to, I achieved my target of having, on average, a talk every other week. Although really, this was more like several weeks of back-to-back talks and some weeks of rest…

  25. Creating w3 sites with Drupal
  26. Blog Your Way Out of a Job… and Into a Career (IBM and external)

That’s interesting. Also 26 separate topics… I hadn’t realized I did that many presentations. It’s all fun, though!

Next year, I want to talk more about communication, connection, and collaboration. I want to get better at recording and posting videos. I want to play with more sketches and maybe even animation, too.

My first public talk was at a Linux conference in 2001. In the past 8 years, I’ve learned tons, and I look forward to learning and sharing even more!
