I am moderating a panel discussion next week that looks to be an interesting mix of politics, business and technology. It will be next Wednesday night, the 16th, and is sponsored by the MIT Enterprise Forum of the Northwest. That’s a non-profit group that is affiliated with alumni group of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

They’re calling the dinner and discussion event: Campaign Technology 2.0: Today's Tools, Tomorrow's Opportunities. On the panel will be consultants Cathy Allen and Christian Sinderman, Newsvine CEO Mike Davidson, and Trace Anderson, founder of BlueUtopia. (It’s a Democratic group this time. For future reference, please send me the names of local Republican tech-savvy operators.)

The event is in Bellevue and begins at 5 p.m. You can get all the details here.

If theater is more your style, TVW founder and former governor’s chief of staff Denny Heck is making three appearances around western Washington in his one-man play, Our Times. The play is set in the future and is about an elderly Heck responding to a student’s question about major Washington state political events and people during Heck’s time in Olympia.

He sold out five performances in Olympia earlier this year. You can read a review here. All the proceeds go to charity. You can get tickets by contacting Heck at this e-mail address.

The performances are Sunday April 13, Seattle’s ACT Theatre at 2 p.m.; Wednesday April 16 at Olympia’s Capitol Playhouse at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday April 26th at Vancouver’s Columbia River High School at 7:30 p.m. You can call the Vancouver School District Foundation for tickets at the Vancouver show only at 360-313-4730.
