A Gift of Thought

A Gift of Thought is free today on Amazon (and for the next couple of days, too). That's because I'm at GeekGirlCon in Seattle. I'd create a link, but I'm on my iPad and typing is too hard, plus I haven't had any coffee yet, so the chance that the link would go sadly awry is high. But it's been fascinating. I've never been to a convention before, rather than a conference, and maybe this falls somewhere in between. But there are loads of people in costumes wandering around amidst discussions of misogyny and gender and online space and community. I've always thought web design conferences were an improvement over code conferences and this is definitely the step up from that. I'm a little nervous that my presentation is too practical, not philosophical, but c'est la vie, it's way too late to worry about that now. Pam says I need to go slower so people have time to write down the links, so I'm still trying to figure out how to do that. I might have to cut something. Anyway, time to find some caffeine -- but download Thought if you haven't and tell your friends, if they're the type to enjoy quirky ghost stories!


  1. Is it too late to make up some kind of board with all the links so people can copy them?
    My daughter is coming today so I'm going to have her fix my kindle so I can check out A Gift of Thought. Then I'll do a blurb on my blog.
    Have fun at GGC.

  2. Oh, good idea. I'll post them here, then people can just come and click. Nice live links, the best kind. But it'll have to wait until I have a real keyboard back -- typing on the iPad is hard enough without trying to make links. Thanks for the suggestion!
