Koan Bremner's view on life as a database and data warehouse professional / addict and non-genetic woman

One door opens...

I'm really, insanely excited about this;

BlogHer Conference '05

That I'm *attending* would be, for me, exciting enough; but if you check the schedule, you'll see that one of the panelists for the session "How to Get Naked" is... me. And, for me, the invitation to be on this panel (because I didn't ask, I *was* invited) represents yet another sign of acceptance, by others (in this case, a conference by and about women) of me as a woman. I'll confess, I was initially hesitant about how I would be treated, as an attendee; I took advantage of a post on, which announced the conference, to ask that specific question in a comment, and was overwhelmed by the supportive responses I received, both as comments on that post and in private email.

I wrote here and here about the notion of setting measurable goals as a means of measuring my social progress; the invitation I've just described represents another personal unit test passed.

Now, I just have to decide what to *wear*... ;-)
