Hello Fellow Nubies and Rubyists,
[b]I have been invited to guest co-host with regular host Heidi Heynes the 12pm CST radio show on WDSU.com or 990AM. [/b]
We will interview celebrities, leaders, activists and philanthropists involved in the TED affiliated conference TEDxNOLA.com? We will also discuss Ruby Nuby and what we hope to do in New Orleans and how we hope to take advantage of the fact that the soldout RubyConf.org, the largest Ruby conference in the country, is being held here in November.
This weekend is the 5th anniversary of Katrina.
FYI, I got information that Ruabout:homebyConf.org will open more tickets up on the 15th.? I am going to see about us getting an allocation.? I already have free housing secured for the Ruby Nuby Community if they come down.? I will post about that later.
I will post more later but I secured a very exclusive ticket to the Mayor of New Orleans reception for the Katrina memorial/celebration...only in New Orleans we celebrate troubled times...as in Jazz Funerals...I love my hometown:)
Ruby Nuby was filmed on CNN!!! Our presentation hosted at LauchPadNOLA.com and sponsored by RubyBayou.com was filmed with John Roberts interviewing the CEO Chris Schwartz of LaunchPadNOLA. I will post the link later.? Chris, who runs several Rails companies, is very excited about Ruby Nuby and wants to help.
Yesterday, we were sponsored a ticket to the National CIO/CTO Luncheon for the Louisiana Technology Council.? I spoke with Tony Scott, CIO of Microsoft, about sponsoring Ruby Nuby.? Can you imagine Microsoft sponsoring a Ruby group?? I can:)
I will write more later after the trip...but I have to run to this radio show...I found this out 20 minutes ago:)
