I though about that about what I could talk to you about today how it ties into your syllabus and leave you taking copious notesWe’re note going to do that … what I am going to do is talk to you a bit about my journey and how all of this is relevant especially in a networked global economy
By no means is my professional journey traditional
How is all of this relevant you’ll find that all of your experiences are relevant Going from an undergraduate marketing major to this the director of outreach for a startup and panels at both sxsw and the nonprofit technology conference in sfo
[What I do requires fantasticconcentration...but you cant be totally alone,or you lose all contact with reality,so even when Im engrossed andsecluded,Jack Dunphy can be there.Hes my oldest and best friend, and bestcritic too.] Truman Capote
Relationships matter. They always have and they always will.
The Road Not TakenTwo roads diverged in a yellow wood,And sorry I could not travel bothAnd be one traveler, long I stoodAnd looked down one as far as I couldTo where it bent in the undergrowth;Then took the other, as just as fair,And having perhaps the better claimBecause it was grassy and wanted wear;Though as for that the passing thereHad worn them really about the same,And both that morning equally layIn leaves no step had trodden black.Oh, I kept the first for another day!Yet knowing how way leads on to way,I doubted if I should ever come back.I shall be telling this with a sighSomewhere ages and ages hence:Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—I took the one less traveled by,And that has made all the difference.Robert Frost.
