A Point In Time
Mar 10 2010
Today was an interesting point in time for me. March 10, 2010. My son is 7 1/2 years old and my daughter is almost 5. God, I love them so much. A mother’s love cannot be explained in mere words. When we learn to communicate telepathically maybe we can share that intense love and the world would be a better place. I will blog more later about the poignancy of this day which happens to be a day or so before SXSW Interactive 2010 starts.
I picked up my kids from school after their soccer class today, and they rode their bikes near the house for a little bit since it was such a gorgeous, sunny day after the sudden burst of rain earlier in the day. My daughter wants me desparately to take her training wheels off so she can ride like her older brother, and I keep telling her to wait until summer or the weather is consistently better so I have time to teach her like we did my son back in 2008.
I’ll be attending SXSW Interactive this year as a spectator. Last year I organized a panel called Building A Web Business After Hours. It was fun and well attended. I learned since then it’s a very hard thing to keep up especially when you don’t have the time, support, and monetary resources to do it well. I ended up transferring ownership to my amazing partner, Nicole Johnson. This year I submitted a panel idea on how to leverage your online and offline networks, but it was not selected because I think they wanted it to be more narrowly focused. I was kind of relieved actually. I’m looking forward to going and supporting the Austin Technology Incubator‘s presence there via Bart Bohn’s (Wireless/IT Director) involvement with the Entrepreneur’s Lounge, Austin’s Interactive Showcase, and The Accelerator. A couple of ATI’s companies have been nominated and will most likely do very well. I’m also looking forward to the parties I’ve been invited to, catching some interesting panels, and seeing some of my online friends I haven’t seen since last year.
Onward and upward. Today is another day in the journey of the rest of my life…Author: Aruni | Filed under: parenting | Tags: austin technology incubator, entrepreneur's lounge, mother's love, riding a bike, sxsw interactive | Comments Off
