The annual class reunion conference for Search Marketing Industry folks, called SES San Jose is wrapping up. All week I was glued to the radio, aka “Twitter”, listening in to the events while working, cough, working.
Having been to one of these affairs, catching up next week is going to be hell. Co-workers resent you. Jet-lag. Deadlines due “yesterday”. Family wants “quality time”. The pets ignore you as their way of punishment. You spent all your money at the bar so you’ll starve the rest of the month. And you’re scared to death you’ve missed something interesting while you were sucking up to famous people.
So. I took some notes for you. Here’s some random stuff I bookmarked that was Stumbled or Twittered or blogged in my face somehow.
