The Powazek World Tour

Today I embark on the very exciting 2006 Powazek World Tour. (Well, if you consider Portland and DC the world and two stops to be a tour, anyway.)

This Thursday and Friday I’ll be participating in a private conference sponsored by – I swear I’m not making this up – the State Department. It’s called the “Conference on Blogs and Democracy” and I’ll be on a panel about “The Influence of the Blogosphere” and if I told you any more, I’d probably have to kill you.

But if I see Condoleezza, I promise to say hi for you.

I’ll be speaking on a panel about Business Blogging (free preview: “Don’t start a conversation if you’re not prepared to have one.”) and I’ll be reprising my New Community talk (free preview: “You need your community more than they need you.”)

Looks to be a good couple of weeks for nerddom.

Hi, I’m Derek. I make awesome community-centric web stuff. I sometimes post things to Flickr and Twitter. I’m mostly harmless. More.
