ok, I’m back! the conference was great, with more social networking than you can shake a bad pickup line at. in order to inspire networking, they even had a liquor-laden hospitality room open all night hoping to generate some new weak ties. I had the most excellent time I’ve ever had at a conference, thanks to all of the people I met, and the fine city of New Orleans. I’ll post some of the most interesting sessions I attended over the next couple of days.
