Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. - Cyril Connolly

Conference Blogging
It's lunchtime, and I feel smarter and more professional already.

This is the second conference I've been to this year, where instead of handing out some massive spiral binder with printouts of everyone's Power Point presentations, they simply give you a little flash drive with everything already loaded on it when you register. They also load you down with a huge name badge / passport holder thingy you wear around your neck like a geek with all your conference tickets in them, yet another big tote bag that I will never use, filled with marketing materials from vendors that I will never read. There are CDs, a water bottle holder, pens, etc., in it as well. Really, it gets to be a bit much after a while. I came back to the hotel room at lunch just to unload, lighten up, and reorganize.

    That damn bag they always give you... I'm running out of people to give them too. It's a shame that Goodwill has more than their fair share of conference bags, isn't it?

    Are you sure you're doing this correctly? Every conference that I've been to involved the participants getting tanked by lunch and then spending the rest of the day figuring out how to expense lap dances.
