It’s On!! I’ll be selling my wares in Disrupt NYC Startup Alley ;)


How hard core am I? Two and a half weeks after major abdominal surgery I’ll be smiling and greeting people strolling through Startup Alley at TechCrunch’s Disrupt NYC 2012.  Very exciting. 

Last year, I was lucky enough to still be writing for a publication that let me get a press pass and go as an attendee.  It was a great event.  My favorite speaker by far was Roelef Botha, and I’m really eager to be able to overhear (from the alley) this year’s speakers.  

We’ll get one day of being set up - and I still won’t be able to carry more than 5 lbs, so it’s not like I’m going to be lugging much more than my laptop, ipad and phone…but I’m really excited.  

Hatchedit was really still a “dream” last year when I attended and its a huge accomplishment for us that in 12 months I’m able to return and show off a full working site, as well as our phone and tablet apps.  

I tend to be the shyer of the two of us, and I would not be nearly so excited had I not already had the NAPO conference under my belt.  Walking professional organizers through the site about 500 times over the two days that we were there was the perfect training ground for being a startup at Disrupt.  

I’ll really miss my wingman Megan - but she’ll be in Texas speaking to some possible future partners, and this will make it our first official “divide and conquer” weeks as co-founders.  

Now I just have to figure out what to wear. :)

Some of my pictures from last year…..
