My mom and grandma used to marvel at how I was such an early riser as a baby. Apparently, even after my birth, which was late at night and when most sane people getting ready to turn in, I was up the next morning…at dawn.

Now, not so much. My late-teen and early adult years turned me into a bona fide night owl. Maybe it was the late nights studying. Maybe it was the late nights partying. I don’t know. Whatever it was, it definitely made a marked shift in my sleeping vs. waking patterns and preference. In fact, in many ways, it’s what’s made being a work-at-home professional with a kid (um, a WAHM that is), a bit easier. It’s quiet at night. And the chances for any interruptions in thought process or work flow are slim to none. (more…)

Tonight’s Cyber Savvy Show 03.26.08–WordCampDallas w/Charles Stricklin March 26, 2008

I am dreadfully late with this post. It was just one of those days. You know the kind…where time seems to just completely escape you and the all the forces of the universe seem to conspire against your personal deadlines?

Well, luckily, the winds shifted this evening and tonight’s show was a breeze, but not without help of course. Tonight’s guest was Charles Striklin, a new media professional and co-organizer of this year’s WordCamp Dallas, which takes place in Frisco, Texas (a suburb of Dallas)  this weekend March 29 and 30.

Engaging and apt, Charles spoke about the origins of WordCamp, what can be expected at WordCamp Dallas and how WordCamp events are occurring not just in the United States, but worldwide. This little blogger and big fan of WordPress and what the WordPress guys have created is wishing that she could hop on a plane and be there. For those of us who can’t make it, we’ll be able to peek in on all the official action because when you get a bunch of bloggers together for formal and informal gatherings, you know that at least a handful of them will be posting about it.

To find out more about WordCamp, visit www.dallas.wordcamp.org. Registrations are being accepted through Friday. You can also listen to Charles’ WordCamp podcast for more information and details, and of course, you can hear my interview with him from tonight’s Cyber Savvy Show broadcast.
