Losing Track of Time

Losing time. It happens to all of us. But I specifically failed to see a milestone date come and go. Luckily it isn't anything that will get me into hot water.

It was Startup Chucktown's 3rd Anniversary (back on June 6th). I'm not sure how I failed to see that coming, other than not setting a reminder.

I just wanted to take a quick moment and thank those of you that stay engaged with the blog and Twitter feed. This is all for you and hopefully you find the content interesting and useful. If you ever want coverage on a specific topic or your startup venture, please reach out.

Michelle Van Jura of Intersect Communications did a fantastic job moderating the Women In Tech panel session. Also of note on the panel was Titania Jordan host of Atlanta Tech Edge. The panel did a wonderful job address a variety different situations from the female perspective.
