Landed in Chicago after one of those flights with endless time sitting on the runway without information, snacks, or air conditioning (blog post fodder), reading Fast Company four times through for lack of something better to do (more blog fodder, very cool article about geek TV), then watching documentaries on the airplane about Hitler (still more blog fodder that will probably never get posted) and Bob Dylan (trying to figure out if that one’s more a Copyblogger or Remarkable Comm post).
And Twitter is down, of course, so I can’t wave hello the way I usually would.
So I’ll wave hello from here to my lovely blog friends, many of whom I’ll meet shortly at SOBCon. My plan is to take lots of notes and post about the stuff I think you guys would find most interesting. I managed to get three fountain pens here with no ink disasters, so I am ready to be a note-taking maniac. This SOBCon is all about business uses of social media, so I plan to fly out of Chicago ready to give Darren Rowse a run for his money.
This plan may get entirely wrecked by staying out too late trying to get Brian Clark to say something indiscreet by pouring tequila into him, but we’ll just have to see. (If only Naomi was here.) If nothing else, I’ll have 50 pages of notes to use for blog riffs for the next 6 months.
So if you’re not a fan of messy, possibly rant-y, unpolished posts, you may want to avert your eyes for a couple of days. I’ll be back home next week. Note to potential burglars: my husband is still home and he’s much, much meaner than I am.
