Wondering where and when I’ll be appearing? Ta-da!

Please note that I usually only include events that are open to the public or to large groups of people (such as trade shows). So if I’m coming to your school, for example, there’s a good chance your event won’t be listed here.

The calendar is updated regularly. Whenever there are big changes, I usually blog them, too, so be sure to follow me on Twitter and/or subscribe to the BLog feed for all the big updates!
