I will be out of the office chair starting Tuesday and all day Wednesday as I travel to Kansas City to Highlight Midwest. I am also going to try out ScribeFire for the live blogging and that is what I am using to post this post too.
Highlight Midwest is a conference being held to do just what its name implies. It is going to be focusing on “some of the region’s finest entrepreneurs, technologists, social media experts, and new media success stories” It will be great to actually meet and visit with others in the “fly over” states which are “thought leaders” and “opinion shapers” in these fields. And I know first hand, there are some awesome individuals in the forgotten “fly over” states.
Most of the attendees are coming from such cities as Kansas City, Omaha, and Des Moines. I will be driving in from two hours west of KC. My plan is to live blog as much of what will be taking place on Wednesday and do some twitpics too.
I am hoping that Highlight Midwest (#hm1) is only the first and we will see this event become an annual event after this year.
