I got another one of those nasty emails yesterday warning me that there will be a price to pay for my “perfidy” (they get extra credit for vocabulary). Well, I hate to put off the inevitable, so as a public service to my self-appointed inquisitors, I thought I’d share my busy schedule for the coming week.
Saturday, May 21, 3:45pm — I’ll be at the Bellingham Grassroots & Independent Media Conference, joining a panel discussion on blogging. Other panelists include Natasha Chart of Pacific Views and fellow Drinking Liberally beer-buddy Lee Rosenberg of Blog Reload.
May 23-25 (Mon. thru Wed.), 3:15pm — I’ll be joining my good friend Stefan on the John Carlson Show (570-KVI), to discuss the day’s developments coming out of the election contest trial in Chelan County Superior Court. I expect we’ll both report positive developments for our respective sides… but my pronouncements will be made with greater conviction.
Tuesday, May 24, 6-8:30pm — “Is traditional media obsolete?” That’s the question they’ll be asking at the International Association of Business Communicators Seattle chapter’s annual Media Evening, at the Gordon-Biersch Brewpub (Pacific Place). Apart from dinner (and I assume, beer) the evening includes a kind of “media relations speed dating” in which media participants will switch tables with each dinner course to discuss “critical communication questions” with the attendees. “Media/Journalist” participants will include Ken Schram of KOMO-TV, George Erb of the Puget Sound Business Journal, and… me. Non-members are welcome to attend, but it will cost you $45.
I also expect I’ll be on the Kirby Wilbur Show again sometime next week to discuss the election contest trial. And Kirby’s promised me I’ll also get the opportunity to needle him about the gas tax recall initiative.
