Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
basically this is a prelude to my absence from the system, come Thursday till Monday.
If your going add your name: and what you are looking forward too.
IMO, the day of the conference is for business. If you choose to go out at night on other nights, that is your own prerogative.
i think more than anything, i'm looking forward to putting faces to names, shaking a few hands, maybe even picking up useful info so i can blackmail search engine reps into putting my site top etc etc.
it would be nice to pick up some good tips or business, or (as topr8 says) to hook up with people that might be interested in a project or 2, but i have a brain like a sieve and when it's soaked in alcohol, i got no hope.
if i can just stick to the tea ......
oh yeah, i want a free pen too.
It might be a little bit late now, but after extensive and i say extensive searching you will find quite a few pictures of the members here, but it can take you a really long time though :)
>>One of the best parts!
yup .... i've done a lot of "meets" like this in the past ... you know, chatting on forums or in chat rooms and arrange big parties etc .... i've met hundreds of people this way .... and i don't think anyone i've met has looked how i thought they would .....
the first big meet i did like this was feb 96 ... i got caught in a compromising position that resulted in divorce .... i'll be on my bestest behaviour this time tho ......
I don't wear glasses but I admit, I'm half geek. You have to be a bit geeky to get excited about the Google Update
I'm not so sure, I have some ungeeky friends who can get a bit excited about the Google update, I think a true geek is one who gets excited at the sight of a full moon ;)
I admit to being a true geek. I even have the glasses to prove it.
Personally I have contacts but, that's just cheating
I've had LASIK done, so I'm not sure if that counts as cheating or if that part of the geek quotient is just closed to me now.
what you are looking forward too
Knowledge. Contacts. Matching up faces to names. These are the things I'm most looking forward to during the conference.
Beer. This is what I'm looking forward to as things wind down.
See you guys in a few days.
