The Junk Drawer
I attended ITA Dec 6 – 9 in Palm Springs. What a wonderful group of people and a spectacular line up of sessions. I learned A LOT (which will be the basis for future posts). Also, I was very honored to speak on Social Media and then to co-facilitate a round table discussion (that ended up being two tables and two rows of folks deep) with Wayne Schulz.
Friday found me in Dallas for the Sage MME Partner Meeting. What a great group of partners! Laurie Schultz, Pascal Van Dooren, and Scott Zandbergen presented and facilitated a lively, productive discussion.
I met two absolutely delightful folks via Twitter this weekend @golden_lioness and @legaleagle29. @legaleagle29 and I decided we were all “Tiger’d” out. The lioness and I were talking Twitter comfort level, the loathsomeness of Time Warner, and the fact that my beloved nephew was the best in his US Army Reserve sharpshooter class.
On the bookshelf – I am 3/4 through Crush It by Gary Vaynerchuk, 1/4 of the way through Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell, and 1/3 of the way through Trust Agents by Chris Brogan and Julien Smith. All three of these books made Inc. Magazine’s top business books of 2009 (and made me feel much like I do when I’ve completed a Sudoku puzzle – smug & brainy. There’s no living with me if I’m doing well on the Mensa puzzles in American Way…).
On the sports front this weekend – it was a tough one. Lots of burnt orange tears shed over Colt McCoy not winning the Heisman. The feeling around Austin is that the last time criminal Heisman mis-selection took place, we won the National Championship. So we’re going to take that and run with it. Adding to the gloom, the Cowboys lost. [Wait for it…] Yes, I know it is December.
Oh, and I had a brush with fame! @FakeDanSnyder was taking questions from the little people during the Washington – Oakland game. I was honored that he deigned to answer my question “What’s the deal with you and Tom Cruise?” The answer: We are BFFs and have the bracelets to prove it, plus we are both tall in stature.
