Went to an event yesterday held by Ladies Who Launch, a company that focuses on support for women entrepreneurs. They had some really interesting speakers, including someone from Ning, the social networking platform, someone from Facebook, and an entire panel of women working in Web 2.0! I’m still sorting through everything I learned, and all the business cards I got at the event, but it was really beneficial.
I also found out about an event called BizTechDay, which is all about bringing your business into Web 2.0, in October. I signed up for it on the spot – it was only $75 and they have lots of information on how to build/promote a social network, start a Web-based business, and a lot of useful stuff. I’m looking forward to it.
Site-wise, Drupal has been installed and I have created the underlying structure for the book, yarn, and project databases. I am now working on the displays and hope to have a very minimal proto-prototype ready for the team to look at today or tomorrow.
Mike and I are going off on a fairly short-but-tough bike ride today, so I’m not sure how much I’ll get done (especially since I want to get back to work on my doubleweave sampler project), but tomorrow evening I should have a good chunk of time to work on the site, if I don’t get it done tonight.
