I want to be there. I don’t have to be there.
I get to meet really cool people.
I get to listen to really cool people.
I get to talk about really cool ideas.
No one will be annoyed at questioning the status quo.
No one will roll their eyes at me if I mention Twitter. Or challenge me to explain the benefits of Foursquare.
Nor do I have to do any selling. Of anything. To anyone.
I get to take the train. I love the train.
I get to just be.
And if that isn’t enough, my BFF from CA is going to be in Chicago at the very same time, with her husband and daughter. I get to see them too. Serious bonus points. I have to decide if I have room for my camera. But a full report to follow, promise.
