Did I help? If so, please donate to March for Babies!

Mar 23, 2009 Author: lisa larson~kelley | Filed under: Rants & Ramblings

It’s that time of year again; my annual pilgrimage back to Michigan for the March for Babies walk. My family walks every year in memory of my niece Jessica, who left us too early at age 2, nearly 11 years ago.

So, if I’ve helped you sort out a video problem or pointed you in the right direction, consider giving a couple of bucks to Team Jessica. Just click on the widget in the sidebar to the right!

Thanks :)

Anarchy at Flash on the Beach

Mar 16, 2009 Author: lisa larson~kelley | Filed under: Announcements

FOTB is going punk, as you can see from this year’s banners (just there, down and to your right)… so get ready! This year is going to be as jam-packed as ever with great speakers, inspiring content, and, of course plenty of beer and chips.

Soooper-dooper early bird tickets go on sale May 18, and be sure to sign up for the newsletter for reminders and updates:

It’s a bit earlier this year, Sept. 20-23rd, so the weather in Brighton should be great. Since I missed it last year, I’m really looking forward to it. It’s one of the few conferences I’ll be speaking at this year, since I now have a little one in tow. :) Hope to see you there!

Attention Women: FitC wants you!

Mar 13, 2009 Author: lisa larson~kelley | Filed under: Announcements

In their ongoing effort to encourage more women to get involved in the Flash community (an initiative near and dear to my heart) the organizers of Flash in the Can are sponsoring a contest to send 100 women to FitC Toronto.

FITC Toronto 2009 (website)
The Design & Technology Festival
April 25-28, 2009 // Hilton Toronto. Canada

So, if you are one of those talented, underrepresented women, tell them so in a video post or Flash animation WHY you want to go to FitC Toronto!

To Enter, just complete the form and send them the link to your video. The first 100 entries they get will receive a free festival ticket to FITC Toronto 2009! It’s that easy!

Don’t miss out; FitC Toronto is a world-class event. I’m regrettably missing it this year, but you, GO! REPRESENT!
