Event Details

As there are usually no-shows, you can probably still attend this event. Bring $20 cash to register at the door. We can't guarantee how many cupcakes will be left.

Cupcake lovers: You are invited to celebrate with us!

Join us for the Digital Capital  Week edition of Sweets and Tweets, featuring cupcakes, wine, a new venue and a provocative panel discussion by Washington DC's 2010 Most Influential Women in Technology, as named recently by Fast Company.

Special thanks to our sponsor, Microsoft Public Sector.


Digital Capital Week is a 10-day festival in DC (June 11 - 20, 2010) focused on technology, innovation and all things digital in our nation’s capital. At this special edition of Sweets and Tweets, you'll be treated to a lively panel discussion featuring DC members of Fast Company's just published list of Most Influential Women in Technology.

Psst. Whether or not you can join us June 15, please join our new Facebook page for photos and write-ups of past events and updates about future ones.


Panel discussion with some of DC's Most Influential Women in Technology

There will be plenty of excitement and plenty of time for questions.This won't be a same old, same old rehash of why there aren't enough women in technology. Given the depth and breadth of talent on Fast Company's list, it's clear there are plenty of women doing important work in the tech space. Perhaps the question is: why aren't they better known?

On our all-star panel:

- Teresa Carlson, VP of Microsoft Federal Government (pictured at top)

- Allyson Kapin, founder of Women Who Tech (photo below right)

- Ellen Miller, co-founder of The Sunlight Foundation (photo above, in black and white)

- Katie Stanton, U.S. State Dept. Special Advisor on Innovation

- Shireen Mitchell, founder of Digital Sisters (photo below left)

- Debbie Weil: moderator; author and corporate blogging expert (top of page, in cowboy hat)

Also on Fast Company's Most Influential list is Sheila Campbell, co-chair of the Federal Web Managers Council.



Yes, there will be cupcakes

Because we're doing a panel, this special edition of Sweets and Tweets will be held after hours at the very cool Hamiltonian Gallery on U Street. You can expect CUPCAKES from Baked and Wired, of course. We will also be serving wine. Maybe a cold rosé? We need to research what goes with cupcakes.

Sweets and Tweets features leading voices from DC's diverse technology community on the use of social media by the public and private sector, from the White House and federal agencies to local startups. The event series is produced and hosted by author and corporate social media consultant Debbie Weil.


Previous Sweets and Tweets have featured:

- Tom Peters, bestselling author and business provocateur

- Anil Dash, blogging and tech celeb and founder of Expert Labs

- Mark Drapeau, Microsoft's Director of Innovative Social Engagement

- Mark Walsh, CEO of crowdsourcing startup GeniusRocket

- Andrew P. Wilson, social media manager for U.S. Department of HHS 


Every attendee at this private event gets:

  • FREE delicious cupcakes: Baked & Wired's cupcakes declared best in the nation by The Atlantic

  • The chance to rub shoulders - and learn from - those working in DC's innovative and increasingly active social media and Gov 2.0 space.

Don't wait to register if you are interested. Space is limited because of the size of the venue. And the event usually sells out.
