Blog by Sumana Harihareswara, Changeset founder
Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2009 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.
My experience at Seattle Mindcamp reminded me to refresh my GeekSpeakr speaker's profile and ensure I'm on lists of female and/or Asian-American tech speakers. I'm photogenic and I can organize Powerpoint Karaoke! What more could a conference want?
