What's even the point of so large a conference?


Multiply number of attendees (170,000 at Dreamforce last year) by cost of ticket ($2,000 full price), and wonder no more.

Events are huge business today.

Kate MacKinnon appearing at next conference I'm attending. And I am just the guy to say to everyone, "Meh, I saw her when she was playing the clubs."

Which is true (and I am the just the guy to mention that).

Got this note from a client:

 

 

Thanks so much for all your work on this—the editorial team is really pleased.

 

Oh noes--does that mean they'll want to use me in future projects? I rather hope not.

As I suspected/feared: I have been asked to do the next one, on grilling. It will come in June into July--so I will REALLY need my usual Vermont vacation following.

 

Well, at least I'm not being forced to retire.
