Weekly review: Week ending November 3, 2012

Posted: - Modified: | weekly

Second week of conference sprint. Toronto was buffeted by Hurricane Sandy, but skipped the worst of it. I stayed home instead of going to some of the events, although I went to Startup Communities and WordCamp Developers Toronto.

I skipped the MaRS Entrepreneurship 101 lecture this week, but for a good cause – a friend had a wisdom tooth taken out, and needed help recovering.

I think I’m through the most packed part. I have a speaking engagement on the 28th. I’ve been turning my discretionary days to good use, reaching out to my networks and looking for ways to help. This turns out to be lots of fun.
