Busy, tired me

If I don’t blog much over the next week, it’s because I’m doing everything I can to become an incubator of airplane-borne diseases. This morning I spoke at the excellent Internet Librarian conference in Monterey, then I’m on to NYC for the World Technology Awards, where Too Big to Know is shortlisted, then on Wednesday I’m in Chicago for Learning 3.0, where I’m keynoting plus arguing with Andrew Keen, then Thursday at Northeastern U. where I’m giving a breakfast talk on Open Access, and finally on Thursday night I’m going to the Genoa Science Festival for two days to give a talk and to support the Italian publisher of Too Big to Know. Ah, yes, just a typical week.

I’m on the first leg, and I’m already exhausted.

(And sorry that this is a braggy, self-centered, low-value post. I’ve decided I should do these occasionally. For example, it matters to me that because of 2b2k I’m one of five finalists for a technology communication award. I’m not proud that it matters to me — I’d like to be above it all — but it does.)

  1. Well, I find these sorts of posts very informative, one reason for reading your blog. It’s a fascinating window into what I think of as ethnography of the A-lister. Have you ever thought of putting it into some sort of “Quantified Self” set of statistics – i.e. numbers of airplane trips per week, conferences per month, talks per year, etc?

    It also makes a joke of the net pseudo-popularism. This sort of stuff is a job, a more than full-time job. It’s helpful to be reminded of that, and the demands (in many senses) of it.

  2. Sounds like an interesting schedule, especially if it were spread out a bit! Congratulations on the nomination for the WT Award.

  3. Thanks to the evolution of the printing press, there exists a glossy magazine for virtually every imagination.
    My favorite is “Aggressive Gals” which, this month, features a photoshop composition of a blonde in a red Jeep Wrangler running a stop sign while texting on her iPadXVIII.
    Oh…sorry…commenting on the wrong blog, obviously..

  4. Hurrah! In the end I got a blog from where I can in fact
    obtain useful data concerning my study and knowledge.
