Let me start off by saying that it is so utterly amazing that Central Florida has groups with funding who can do stuff like this, and we wouldn't be where we are now without CFACA and UA. Love ya, mean it.
I'm in the Orlando Weekly under "Culture to Go" - page 30 - Ryan Price Media. Big thanks to Omar de la Rosa for seeking me out at Grandma Party. I'll link to it when it's available http://orlandoweekly.com
By the time most of you read this, I will likely be on my way to the airport. I'm flying out on NorthWest (for the frequent flyer miles). Never flown with them internationally, we'll see. I am pulling out my passport at this very moment...right.
If you have friends in London, send them here to the blog and the comments on this post or the contact form, or MySpace.
If you're on Flickr, add me, I hope to be posting photos all along the way.
Here in Orlando we have some very playful and active hipsters. A little over 2 years ago they started getting together in the parking lot of the hippest place in town, the Stardust Video & Coffee house. The parking lot turns into a flea-market / craft show atmosphere, with live music in one corner, a gigantic rummage sale, designer haircuts, short shorts and brightly-colored outfits.
I recently made a post over at Florida Creatives about my booth and making buttons.
EDIT: I jumped the gun. If you read Josh's post, you'll know this is a "penciled in" date.
Chances are if you participate in Social Media (especially in Orlando), you have heard of Josh Hallet. Or read a blog he consulted for, designed, even influenced in some way. Last year Josh put together a fantastic UnConference called BlogOrlando. Rollins College was a great space for this event, with two rooms and tons of useful sessions. This year will only be bigger and better from what I understand.
Earlier this week, I lost 3 months worth of email, to a problem as-of-yet undiagnosed. I had been meaning to get things moved over to our CervoSites hosting (it is our hosting reseller plan), but I was worried the transition wouldn't be smooth... like maybe I would lose all my email!
I am now on the new server and email is running again, but if you sent any important email to < rprice AT ryanpricemedia.com > you'll have to send it again, I don't have it.
