Mitch Ratcliffe says he doesn’t go to conferences anymore cause they are all the same. Hmmm, I’ve been to a ton of conferences lately and while some are the same, many are quite different. The audience and speakers (other than me) were totally different at the IT Forum and Les Blogs and Global Voices conferences I visited in Europe. Maybe they just need to go to different conferences? And what would a conference be without seeing Halley?
