The Adventures of Cindy Li
SXSW Interactive 2008: Panel Picking time!
August 26 , 2007
Once upon a time
on a warm summer day at Dim Sum in Rosslyn, VA. Kevin Lawver spoke about what panels he would like to do and one of them was “TPS Reports to V.C. (Virtual Capital) money” (TPS Reports is a reference to Office Space just in case…). Jason Garber was there of course and we started thinking about the career paths that all of us are taking right now. Kevin Lawver’s been at AOL, a very long time; Jason’s worked for a small company, worked at AOL, and now is in startup land. We wanted someone to round off the group and Thomas Vander Wal came to mind. Thomas has been a consultant and running his own show.
My background is that I was in a startup, got bought out by AOL and worked there for ages then left to go off to startup land. So if your trying to figure out what to do join us :)
We ended up going with a title that was a bit more general for the audience. Career Transitions: From DIY to Working for The Man
Career Transistions: From DIY to Working for The Man
You are trying to right size your career and wondering if working for a monster multinational corporation, government, a small start-up, design shop, or a solo freelancer is the way to go? This is the panel will explain the good sides and the dirt with each of the options. The panel has covered it all and is living it all. The panelists are:
* Jason Garber
* Kevin Lawver
* Cindy Li
* and Thomas Vander Wal
