***Edit: someone on Twitter kindly reminded me of Con or Bust, so I will be reaching out to them. Thank you!***
It is March and I am giving up. There’s really no way for me to get to Helsinki this year – besides the prohibitive cost, it’s very close to a family event that takes precedence. This means my first-time membership will otherwise languish.
I’ve been thinking hard about what I want to do with my membership, and while I could certainly use the money from selling it, what I’d really like to do is give it to someone who could use a hand getting there. I’m not yet at a point in my career where I have many opportunities to pay it forward, but this is definitely one such opportunity.
So: if you know of someone who can otherwise go but is struggling to come up with the 100-euro fee, send them my way and we’ll work something out. Note that it’s a first-time membership; I’m not sure how it would work transferring to someone who’s a repeat attendee, and ideally, I’d like to give it to someone who has never been before.
The rest of you, I’ll see you in 2017, when y’all will be coming to me here in California. 🙂
