Conferences Galore: Innovate then MAX

I'm going to be travelling a lot the next two weeks to back to back conferences. One ministry related, one tech related. I'm incredibly excited about both.

Wednesday four of the media team volunteers and four of us from the Schweitzer staff are leaving for Innovate (Aviles is leaving Tuesday, for a preconference workshop). Innovate is hosted by Granger Community Church near South Bend, IN and it looks to be an exceptional event. I love hearing Guy Kawasaki speak and he's one of the main session speakers. I'm going to stick around Michiana for one of the Saturday night services at Granger and catch a train to Chicago that night. I'm going to try to experience a different church on Sunday morning (not sure where yet).

Sunday afternoon kicks off MAX 2007, Adobe's annual developer/designer conference. This is an event I attend every year and this year looks to be off the charts. They've got some great speakers lined up and this year I actually booked every slot in my agenda. In previous years I've gotten jaded after the first day having seen everything of interest – probably the curse of having not missed one of these events in years (since the last Macromedia UCON in San Francisco). Even if the sessions don't turn out to be as good as they look listening to the Inspire presentations will be worth the cost of admission.

If you're going to either of these events shoot me a note. I'll be keeping twitter updated, maybe pownce too.
