Next year is going to be in Seattle again… Argggh! Another six hour flight. More jet lag. YUCK!
Money review. Yawn. But you’d be horrified how much all this stuff costs at the convention center.
BTW, I’m pretty excited to be presenting. I know someone else who pointed at their ribbons and said “The only ones that count are MVP and Speaker.” I feel the same way about my Speaker ribbon (I don’t have the other one). More so because, of 70 or so available slots, more than 500 abstracts were submitted. If you want to thank any particular set of volunteers, I’d go for the program committee. They bust butt. Of course, if your abstract didn’t get picked, you might not be too happy with those guys, but look at what they had to do. The good news is more slots will be open next year.
The last half of the day was mainly break-out sessions. I had a chat with Chuck about the Editorial Committee and then I spent hours with the SIG Committee where we are trying to figure out how best to generate content, publish it, and get people involved with the community through the SIG.
It’s been a great day. The PASS Board did a good job of putting together a lot of information.
