Two upcoming Bay Area events for the gadget-and-film set:
- Women 2.0, a Silicon Valley-focused entrepreneurship group known for its business plan contest sponsorship, is hosting a conference in Palo Alto with Stanford Women in Business on May 10. Frog Design, Google.org and a handful of startups make for an intriguing list of presenters. I’m excited that so many forums are opening for us novices working in this space to interact with the people we look up to (I’m a Girls in Tech fan myself but also able to get behind the idea of the more, the merrier).
- Bay Area Women in Film and Television’s monthly meeting on May 14 will focus on marketing your media and will include panelists from online video analytics and distribution company Tubemogul and PodTech. The get togethers are a fun way to meet other young producers, video hosts and the like. The SF School of Digital Filmmaking is worth a visit even if not for this event (although I’d eat beforehand–the falafel at the April meeting had me running scared). The $5 to attend will be money well spent, and signing up in advance is recommended.
