So I am fully prepared to eat my words, and admit that I was perhaps too skeptical about the new women’s conference initiative kicked off by Cate Marvin and Erin Belieu. I visited the Facebook group again today – the membership has grown over night from a few hundred to more than 2,000, and the discussions on the group wall are covering some pretty solid territory. I’m impressed at how well thought-out these plans are, considering how early in the game it is, and I’m going to continue to be prepared to keep eating my words.

Of course, it is still early, and the discussion on the board right now is just that – discussion. However, I’m going to try to put my skepticism on hold for now and watch what develops.
