It’s Feels Good to Be Appreciated…

The March 30th Stocktoberfest schedule of speakers and fireside chats is now live (scroll down). I am really proud of this lineup. Most importantly, the evening ‘Cashtag’ awards should be a fantastic party and celebration of the social financial web. If you are in NYC and you like stocks and markets…please join us. Taylor Becker and Pierce Crosby did a hell of a job organizing a big event in the big city.


I got a very nice compliment from WSJ Technology columnist Chris Mims the other day on my markets riff:

I am excited that both Mike Lazerow and Brett Wilson will be sitting for fireside chats at Stocktoberfest to talk about investing and the trends they see themselves, now that they are moving up and on.

Nancy really nailed me in the opening:

Howard Lindzon is an irreverant buzz machine who powers through wall-to-wall- meetings on five milligrams of Adderall.
