But Chris wasn't looking at an online "duration calculator," so we'll cut him some slack.
Thanks, everyone, for a great conference! And do come to Denver, even if you missed John Boogert's song and dance. (OK, so there was little singing, the dancing was later, and he wasn't involved, but you get the idea.) I got home this morning, and it's sunny and warm. But skiing's not far away, if that's what it'll take to get you here.
Thanks, too, to Khari Williams of the Sun-Sentinel, who passed this along late Saturday:
More unexpected sightings: first a manatee, now cricket.
No, not that cricket.Cricket the sport, as in former Australia national players Andy Bichel and Michael Kasprowicz, part of a group staying over at the hotel before they cruise to the Caribbean to watch their team in the World Cup semifinals (and final?). I have the fan in the bright yellow and green hat to thank for the reconnaissance; after a little chat during our lunch break he pointed out who the players were, so I gladly went over and got some more signatures for my budding sports autograph collection.
The morals of the story? (a) Even in between sessions, it pays to pay attention, and (b) Never stop networking.
Now, I wonder if there's any space left on the cruise?
