PodCampAZ is Turning Five!

  • Posted on June 14, 2011 at 10:26 pm

November 12th & 13th, 2011  will be PodCampAZ’s fifth anniversary and we are celebrating.  We are bringing back the successful Genius Panels, our favorite Podcaster will make her 5th appearance, the gorgeous, Cj Feirabend  and we have few surprises in store as well.

Interested in speaking,  or know someone that should, at PodcampAZ?  Sign up here: http://podcampaz.org/speakers/

Just want to attend?  http://podcampaz.org/register

If you just want to take a look at the site you can do that too: http://podcampaz.org/

This is my 4th year volunteering for PodCampAZ and I have a lot of fun doing it.  This is one of the few events where I meet new people, reconnect with old friends and enjoy listening to the speakers.    If you have always wanted to go and thought you couldn’t afford it, you can afford it because it’s free.

As it has been in the past the event will be held at UAT, http://uat.edu/.   Starts about 9am (ish) and ends about 3pm (ish).

I hope to see you there!

The date above will be a part of history.  It will be a part that no one ever wanted to happen, except those that can’t decipher that killing someone is morally wrong.  Yesterday a young man took the lives of a Federal Judge, a nine year old girl, three elderly citizen’s of Tucson and a Congress Woman’s aid.

I’m trying to put it all in my head and make sense out of it.  All I can come with is why?

The one thing that is killing the United States is IGNORANCE.  Ingorance of how our children are raised, ignorance in how we speak to our fellow man, ignorance in how we even believe in ourselves.

In our country, freedom of speech comes with a heavy price for us all because what we speak of also speaks to the world, as do our actions.   I don’t believe that anyone can really be held accountable for yesterday other than the shooter himself.  We don’t know who he is as a person, we don’t know how he was raised,  we don’t even know if he is mentally sound.

We as a society need to come together and work towards the greater good of our country, states, community and last but not least our families.  We are losing ourselves to hate, rage and violence more and more everyday.  We ignore what our kids are watching, reading and the most important thing talking to our kids.

What do I want to do for my country, state, community and family? I want to help those who are less fortunate than me and teach them something that will help them believe enough in themselves that they can in turn help their country, state, community & family.  I just don’t know where to begin.

Here are the names of those who died John Roll, a federal judge,  Christina-Taylor Greene, Gabe Zimmerman, The Congress Woman’s Aide, Dorothy Morris, Dorwin Stoddard and Phyllis Scheck.  When you go out keep them in your thoughts and remember to be mindful of how you treat your fellow man.
