event calendar: february 15—21, 2010

after a whirlwind of mixers last week, i’ve planned a pretty low-key schedule for socializing for this week. time to switch from networking & promotion to research and work, recharging for events to come.

here’s what i’ll be doing:

tuesday, february 16, 9pm ET i’m going to watch Self-Employment: How to get the guts to take the leap on brazen careerist. i’ve been reading penelope trunk for awhile now and i’m curious about what she and ryan paugh have to say about self-employment.

wednesday, february 17, 5pm ET i’ll be planted on my couch, front & center at my laptop to join in on the live webcast of lemonade. Lemonade is an inspirational film about 16 advertising professionals who lost their jobs and found their calling, encouraging people to listen to that little voice inside their head that asks, “What if?.”

& then at 8:30pm i’m joining in on this awesome typographic bike ride that my friend the royal academy put together. check the full midnight ridazz description, and come along!

thursday, february 18, 7:30pm i’m going to hear marian bantjes talk at art center about reinventing her design practice. event information at aiga los angeles.
