Big Omaha Is Coming

This year on May 7th and May 8th, think about heading out to Omaha for the BIG Omaha Conference, which has a mission to “not only think, but act on what is possible here in the heart of the Midwest.” Isn’t everything possible in the Midwest?

The speakers list includes: Gary Vaynerchuk, wine expert; Jason Fried, President and Founder of 36Signals; Matt Mullenweg, founding developer of WordPress; Adriana Gascoigne, director of corporate communications for Hi5, et al.
