My brother is a web designer and head of a creative team at a Houston web marketing/design company called Schipul. One of their clients is the Houston Zoo (check out the awesome website!), and this year Schipul is putting on a two day conference there. I follow Schipul’s updates on Twitter, so I knew this was going on but I didn’t think it applied to me.
Then I saw my brother at church and he handed me a bunch of fliers for the conference. He said, “You should come!” I said, “But I’m not a web marketer.” He said, “It doesn’t matter, come hang out and learn about the Internet!” And after I noticed that I could actually get the two days off without taking PTO, and thinking about how I’d like to hang out with him and my good friend Margaret who also works at Schipul, and I saw the topics to be presented and that I was actually interested in some of them, I decided why not?
So I’m going to a web marketing conference, and if you are interested in this kind of thing and live in or near Houston, you should come too!
