Missed Connections

In the spirit of The Village Voice, we bring you Muse "Missed Connections," an opportunity to connect with someone you wished you'd met (or someone you did meet but wished you'd spent more time with) at this year's Muse and the Marketplace conference.

Two ways to do it:

A. If you're on Twitter, simply post your Missed Connection and use the the #muse2011 #connect hashtags.  If you know the name of the person you missed, search for their Twitter handle and include it in the post.

B. Don't have Twitter? Send an email to whitney @ grubstreet.org and she'll post it for you on the blog.

We'll keep this post up-to-date with any and all Missed Connections.  And, if you end up connecting after the fact, send us a blurb--we'd love to know about any new friendships that came out of the Muse.

Here are our first three:

From Stuart Horwitz: Your name was Katherine. You were an entrepreneur. You
told me to stop reading Entrepreneur Magazine and start reading Fast
Company. You had a forceful, non-wallflower type personality and I
want to help you write your book! Stuart@bookarchitecture.com

From @wscharer: Elisabeth Weed, how did it happen that I only got to chat with you for one minute at the Muse? I'd been looking forward to catching up. #muse2011 #connect

From Lisa Borders: Kathy Pories: I had hoped to meet you, but the opportunity never materialized. Now I must trust my manuscript to speak for itself! Hope you had a lovely conference. lisa@lisaborders.com.
