The Web services conference last week worked perfectly. We had 18 speakers from across the country, and the event sold out. This was the most successful event the San Diego Software Industry Council has put on since the downturn. Everyone did great, the caliber of the presenters and panelists was awesome.
We'll do this again sometime, once I forget how much effort I had to put into it. I got a nice plaque and lots of recognition/kudos out of it, but next time, I'd trade some of that for more help orchestrating things and making it happen.
Now I can settle back into my normal routine of over-work, with no public speaking till month-end.
