Lotusphere is almost here!  (Yes, I’m still calling it that.  I know it’s IBM Connect now, but that doesn’t rhyme).

Once again, the Nerd Girls will be hosting Spark Ideas –

Spark Ideas is a chance to bring together a group of our colleagues to discuss what inspires us. We’ll share our experiences, inspiration, challenges, etc., during this compilation of five minute talks. Talks could range from how you were inspired by your math teacher to go into computing, how you juggle your busy job and coaching little league soccer, dealing with stress, or describing a hobby or family project. Previous talks are available on Youtube – http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL95028A08F0E8B934 Join us for this always inspiring session!
That’s Tuesday, Jan 29 at 11:15 AM in Swan Mockingbird 1 & 2

Then Tuesday night, it’s the Great Geek Challenge!  http://www.greatgeekchallenge.com/  You can read all about it here.

Wednesday morning come to the BOF to talk about all the great things that inspired you at Spark Ideas.

Come discuss the ideas presented by the speakers at the Spark Ideas session. Ideas that make us think, wonder or simply be inspired. If you didn’t get a chance to speak at Sparks and want to talk we’d love to have you too. Sparks is the beginning , this is where those ideas grow and take root.

That is Wednesday morning, 7AM (bring coffee!) in the Swan, Toucan 2.

Don’t forget while you are IBM Connect to find us and get your Nerd Girl button!  And before the event, check out our Zazzle shop to show your Nerd Girl pride!
