Ok, I've made my mind up. I can't come to the April pubcon because our 2nd baby is due the 11th! However, I am DEFINATELY going to make the Fall conference my first one ever. It's about darn time! :) Can NOT wait to meet a bunch of you there and shoot the breeze at the bars! :)

The Tipping Point is 1 of the best books I have ever read, and changed my life dramatically.

a kind Thanks to TEDSTER for being the giftgiver of the book at Pubcon London a few years ago.

Unfortunately I won't be able to attend Pubcon Boston.

I knew you before I knew The Tipping Point Shak. Everytime he mentioned a "Connector", I couldn't help thinking of you...

Absolutely true. :)

I've promised myself I'll make it. Have some fond memories of Boston and Sam Adams. :)

Since The Tipping Point opens with that Boston area story, this is a great fit. For those who haven't read the book -- here's a question:

During the American Revolutionary War, Paul Revere and William Dawes set out on the same mission -- to warn the area residents that "The British are coming." So why does everyone remember Paul Revere and Dawes is but a footnote? Gladwell explains and launches a great book from there. I've heard that everyone in the Google marketing department has a copy on their shelf.

[obligatory Hawkgirl-related Boston fact]

One of my ancestors was the instigator of the Boston Tea Party - George Robert Twelves Hewes. He was a fascinating guy - a shoemaker by trade, troublemaker by reputation.

It would be good to see you age, lazer. I agree, that book is a total bulls-eye.

It will been two years since I attended my last PubCon.

I love Boston, and it has been a long time since I have been there.

I am not going to make any excuses for not making this one. Besides, I have my wife's blessings.

Off to Tedster's land!
