> ABOUT OUR PRESENTERS
> *Jess Samuels* (@JessMSamuels <http://www.twitter.com/jessmsamuels>) has
> been talking tech for over 20 years. Her very first computer (not counting
> her Atari) was a hand-me-down black and white Macintosh Classic. However,
> it was her Macintosh Performa that really made her fall in love with all of
> the possibilities that computers and the budding internet could bring into
> our lives. Since then she has developed an intense curiosity for new
> technology and how to make it useful in our day to day lives. Jess also has
> a strong interest in design, and tries to find ways to wed her love for
> graphics and tech (especially in designing infographics).
> *Robbie Samuels* (@RobbieSamuels <http://www.twitter.com/robbiesamuels>) is
> often asked how he manages to do so much and still sleep. These tips are
> the answer. His non-stop schedule includes running 1-2 events a month for
> Socializing for Justice, 23 events a year for Gay & Lesbian Advocates &
> Defenders and 1-4 trainings a month "on the side". No wonder Boston City
> Council named his birthday "Robbie Samuels Day" in 2011! His very first
> computer was a Commodore 64 when he was in 3rd grade and he was hooked.
> Some thought he'd "go into computers", but instead he uses technology to
> enhance his life, increase his productivity and engage with his community.
> Learn more about his trainings, including: "Art of the Schmooze" and
> "Fundraising: Getting Past the Fear of Asking" at www.robbiesamuels.com.

> that allow for the possibility of cross-issue connections and run a monthly

> affordable professional development to increase our individual capacity for
> movement building.
