Some quick updates: ThingsCon, PETS, SolidCon, Highway1

S

you live the surprise results of old plans

 

Writing the weeknotes for KANT I just noticed a few things I haven’t mentioned here, so I’m just copy&pasting them in:

ThingsCon is making big, big strides, including an advisory board and a ton of freshly confirmed speakers. To follow the progress, keep an eye on Twitter and the blog!

This week I’m off to Amsterdam to talk about 3D printing at a big conference for the pets food and toys industry called PETS. I’m going to take Chris‘ new Mac presentation tool Deckset for a spin there, which I’ve been playing around with for a few days and which is great.

Brady Forrest, speaker and advisor at ThingsCon and co-founder of PCH’s hardware incubator Highway1 also made me a mentor for Highway1, which I’m excited about.

Speaking of being excited about hardware/software things, I just learned I’ll be speaking at Solid, O’Reilly’s new conference about the convergence of hardware and software. San Francisco in May it is!
