YVR -> BOS -> NYC -> MSP

Next week I’m heading out for a multi-stop trip to the USA.

I’ll be in Boston for Flash on Tap from the 28th to the 31st of May. Flash on Tap looks to be a great event – not only is there an interesting speaker lineup, there are also 13 microbreweries pouring in the evenings. I’m speaking at 10am on a Friday, which might be a bit early for a pint. I’ll be talking about a raft of projects centred around a theme of emergence, including some recent and brand new work.

After Boston, I head to New York to visit museums, eat as much as I can, and try not to look too much like a first-time New Yorker. Coincidentally I’ll be there for the same week as CAT – though I’m not attending, perhaps I’ll run into some creative technology types while I am wandering the streets. If anyone knows of other events happening in NYC in the first week of June, please let me know.

Finally, I’ll fly into Minneapolis for Flashbelt. I’ve already told you how much I like this event – if you haven’t already bought a ticket, there’s still time. I’ll be speaking at Flashbelt about my work with the NYTimes APIs as well as a broad range of topics surrounding open data and visualization. I’ll also be showing some work as part of the Data Art Show at the Pink Hobo Gallery in Minneapolis – along with James Paterson and Mario Klingemann.

Hopefully I’ll get a chance to talk to some of you along the way. If you are going to be attending either event, or are in Boston, New York, or Minneapolis and would like to say hello, feel free to fire me an e-mail or send a tweet.
