Just a quick note interrupting our regular programming to let you know October is a busy conference month just like October is a busy conference month pretty much every year, and to let you know where to find us in the next few weeks.

As TNW’s European Editor, part of my awesome job is to do a lot of waiting in airports and travel to a bunch of cities continent-wide to attend events and meet with lots of technology startups and investors.

Yesterday, I arrived in Istanbul (Turkey) for the Webit Congress, a massive event and a big deal for the region. I’ll be here through Friday morning so if you’re attending the congress, come say hi.

I’ll be spending most of my time hanging out and interviewing some very interesting people on-stage at the ‘Leaders of the future / Entrepreneurs conference’.

Next week, The Next Web managing editor Martin Bryant, UK Editor Jamillah Knowles and myself will be spending a few days in lovely Dublin (Ireland) for the Dublin Web Summit, the accompanying START event and F.ounders. We’ll be all over the place from Tuesday the 16th until Friday the 19th.

Next, I’m heading to Tel Aviv for DLD, Techono.me and a couple of other events that are aligned with the DLD Tel Aviv Festival week. You can find me diving deep into the Israeli startup scene from Monday the 22nd until Friday the 26th.

Does it end there? As if. The week after it’s time for the Pioneers Festival in Vienna (Austria), a young startup and technology event put on by START Europe that looks mighty promising. I’ll be there from Monday the 29th until the 1st of November.

I genuinely hope to see you at one of those events. Except if you’re a nutcase, in which case I genuinely hope you’re not able to track me down.
