LISA14 - Day The Last

On typing at people, not computers, and saying goodbye for another year.

The Last Day of LISA14

Well, it's been a long, full week and it's time for me to leave the chilliness of Seattle for the chilliness of Brooklyn. I find that the more I learn at a conference, the more tiring it tends to be as my brain desperately tries to process everything while running on not nearly enough sleep (as I said to fellow blogger Hugh, my brain is over).

The Anxiety of Wrapping UpDi

After my day as an exhibitor at LISA14 I decided I was going to be sure I got my day as a participant.

LISA14 - Day Five

On the two great things of LISA: things you know you need to find out, and finding out things you never, ever thought about.
