About the Thin Air Summit
The Thin Air Summit, which is being organized by Goldie Katsu and Kit Seeborg, was born from the idea that getting Colorado’s New Media professionals and out-of-town guests in the same venue for two days of intensive learning and collaborating is a win-win for the area’s New Media community! Conference speakers include Dave Taylor, Jeremiah, Owyang, and Startup Story’s own Rob McNealy.
The conference is organized in three tracks – blogging, audio and video. An optional introductory workshop on new media will be presented on Friday. Seating for the conference is limited to 100 attendees, in order to provide a comfortable and intimate setting for attendees to ask questions and engage in discussions on any number of topics. The opportunities to interact with presenters and fellow attendees are endless.
Register for the Thin Air Summit now. Don’t wait. Seats are filling fast, and this event WILL sell out.
Goldie Katsu’s Bio
Once an explorer always an explorer. Goldie Katsu has been playing with technology since her childhood. She first explored social networking and “new media” back in the dark ages of the network through usenet newsgroups and UNIX system forums. In the latest incarnation of social networking and new media she has been an early adopter and explorer of how to use and benefit from social networking tools and new media. On her blog she explores themes in technology, society, law and how all this relates to our increasing public and connected world.
In addition to writing she is actively involved in web video on streaming video sites such as Blogtv and Ustream, stored video sites like Viddler, and conversational video sites such as Seesmic and 12seconds.tv, and was an early user of many of these sites.
Her participation and content is valued by others and she has been an integral part of the growth of new media. In a recent newsletter Chris Brogan stated in reference to Goldie’s blog “Goldie’s Gabs – Want a grab bag of thoughtful, personal, touching, and insightful stories? In video, text, and beyond, Goldie Katsu delivers. She’s a great producer of content, and someone you feel you know after just a few posts.”
Located in Boulder, Colorado, Goldie joined the Denver Area Podcaster’s meetup. It was at this meetup that the idea of a new media conference for Colorado first came up. Inspired by the idea she gathered a team of interested community members and this has become the Thin Air Summit.
