As you all know, I was supposed to speak at the Ann Arbor DO last Saturday. I committed to this many months ago and was really looking forward to the event. Aside from my presentation, I was excited about meeting readers, fellow bloggers, and catching up with friends. My presentation topic was supposed to be about my time volunteering at the Thessaloniki and Calais refugee camps last summer. It was a sobering experience that I thought lots of people in this hobby might benefit from hearing about. Unfortunately, I missed my flight in Atlanta on Saturday and couldn’t catch the subsequent two that would have gotten me in on time. Luckily Stefan from Rapid Travel Chai filled in for me (thanks Stefan!), though a few people expressed disappointment that I missed the event. I sincerely apologize to anyone I disappointed – also, thanks for even caring. 😜
I’ve been talking to Dave (FT Handle: Bikeguy) about organizing a meet-up to make up for my absence at the Ann Arbor DO. Apparently about half the attendees were locals, while the rest flew in from around the country. He suggested doing a Skype session so that as many people as possible could attend. It’s obviously not the same as an in-person meet-up, but it’s the best way to reach the most people. I’ll give my presentation and answer questions at the end about whatever you want (I’m guessing it will be heavily focused on manufactured spending). Sound good?
Let’s shoot for Saturday, August 12 at 2 PM (PT)/5 PM (ET)
If you want to join in on this Re-DO, just leave a comment and let me know which topics you want me to discuss. Be sure to enter your correct email address in the form so I can email you an invite…once I figure out how all of that even works. Skype accommodates up to 25 participants per call. If we go over this number, I’ll try to schedule another session to give whoever is interested a chance to join in.
