Event Philosopher

South by Southwest 2012 (know as SXSW) is taking place in Austin, Texas, and my husband is attending live and in person. "Events are the original Social Media." - Liz Lathan It's my mantra. :-) And on days like yesterday and today, I'm really living by it! I, however, am home with our 4-year-old and our dogs who just had surgery.

The zombie apocalypse and my skills

Event Philosopher

You're a great friend but if the zombies chase us, I'm tripping you. Anonymous So I’m reading this book about the zombie apocalypse (I know, completely silly… it’s called World War Z – TOTALLY recommend it), and it’s presented as a historical account of the zombie war.
