This post is basically an ongoing list from this twitter thread. It may have started as "50 badass women in the tech, accessibility, inclusivity, and just all round fabulous humans," but it's now so much more than that, thanks to Annie and her network and, well, all of you.Read More
Last night, something really incredible happened. I would say it happened to me, but it really happened to hundreds of women — nearly 1,000 and counting, as the list is now organically growing at a crazy rate, and who knows what it will be by the time you’re reading this.Read More
This is the first of four recaps-that-I'm-behind-on of The Consumer Show at Switchyards, which will be put together into a quadruple feature, because my full-time job ate my life for the last few months. Thanks for the patience, everyone!
So, The Consumer Show, Better Late Than Never, Part 1:Read More
Hello everyone! James here, filling in for Aly while she’s off making the world a better place.
The Consumer Show is always one of my favorite events that I attend. There's something really fun about watching startups pitch their ideas to a crowd and hearing everyone’s questions to the companies.Read More
I hate to do this back-to-back, but I'm going to go out there on a limb and say the first Thursday of the month isn't loving me for the past few rounds, y'all. For the second one in a row, I've got a guest post in for The Consumer Show. (Last-minute but still.)Read More
I get a lot of random PR people trying to convince me that an article on dental clinics or beauty tips or Australian gold mines or something is exactly "what your site needs" from a guest-post. (It does not.) But this is not one of those posts.
Julia reached out to me after attending a recent episode of "Made in Atlanta," a monthly Switchyards collaboration with Alternative Apparel about the best brands made in our city. She had written a recap of the December event and thought I might be interested in cross-posting it here. She was right, so here it is. Enjoy! ~ AlyRead More
Once again, my schedule collided with that of The Consumer Show, and I had to find someone to guest post for the city's best B2C and design pitch event. But don't be sad — my guest poster is Switchyards member Andrew Osborn! (You may remember him from my last Consumer Show guest post back in May. He inexplicably sounds just like me when he writes (?), so he won the toss for "person at the top of Aly's list to bother." This is a dubious honor but he did gamely respond to me so I guess it's okay with him?)Read More
Aaaand we are back, for the twenty-first edition of The Consumer Show! That's 107 B2C companies which have come through Switchyards, y'all, how cool is that?
You know what else is cool? SWAGLANTA.com.
No, I am not making that up, that is a real site, made to share "swag for people who ❤ Atlanta."Read More
