Houston TechFest Postponed


In case you were planning on heading down to Houston for the TechFest tomorrow… you should know that there’s a huge hurricane going on down there right now.

From the site:

Campus will be closed which means that the TechFest is postponed, we will try to have reschedle but not until 2009 at the soonest. Thank you all for being part of the Houston TechFest.

This is disappointing, but understandable (considering that most of Houston is currently under evacuation orders).

I know what you’re asking yourself… "great, what am I going to do now!"


Sign up for the TulsaTechFest. I’ll be speaking at it. Jef Newsom from Improving is the closing key note (awesome!), and it’s WELL above sea level.

… and pray for the people in Houston. This looks like it’s going to be a rough one.
