There's there's also the Small Roundtable in the Bar that can prove englightening after hours.
IF you can snag a Breakfast Roundtable with a few WebmasterWorld members or a Dinner Roundtable you also might learn a thing or two that will help pay for the trip.
Above all else, don't be shy. Introduce yourself. Buying someome a beer is seldom bad form. Don't take the "far away look" on someone's face as an indicator that they aren't interested in conversation. Mostly that's a sign that their mental wheels are turning.
See y'all in Bean City.
Glad to see this topic at PubCon. Now perhaps we can get a Blogging Forum here on WebmasterWorld.
I'll second that.
As a "one man band" guy, there's just no way I can come up with a good Blogging kit. At least not in a timely fashion.
Take an existing blogging kit and hack it to need, sure. But not create from scratch.
Blogging creates it's own issues. I'm muddling through it right now.
It would be nice if Blogging issues had an area of there own. Successful independant bloggers are rare. I think if some of the big brains here got sharing some info, we'd see a few more successful indies.
Also the finish line is right outside the hotel the conference is in. Hmmmm wonder if any runners are looking for a designer or SEM?
Place your bets on the Kenya guys. I know a guy in SOuthie that'll take those bets.
This is the Scoblizers first trip to Pubcon. What type of initiation rights should we inflict?
This is a tall order for a guy who knows almost everybody and has seen almost everything except PubCon.
I'd say a naked book signing for his "Naked Conversations" but I think he did that already....
I look forward to hearing what everyone has to say. It should be great.
