Austin time

austin-txI’m thrilled to have been invited to be a moderator at the Plan País Conference in Austin, Texas this weekend.

Plan País is a yearly conference in which Venezuelan students in the US get together with older people such as myself to discuss solutions to the various issues surrounding our country. The organizers have kindly asked me to talk about the media – new, old, chavista, and what comes next.

If you’re in town, stop by for a visit. It should be loads of fun – Laureano will be there! So will other interesting folks.

And if you can’t make it, I’ll do my best to blog about the happenings. I can’t promise much since I will probably be tired, but maybe I’ll post a daily video recap or something.

The other great thing is that I have an excuse not to write about the upcoming train-wreck-of-a-Summit in Panama. I’ll leave that task to my fellow bloggers …

(Who am I kidding, I’ll probably write about the Summit anyway).

Regardles – come to Austin! Come for the cháchara, stay for the barbeque.
