I guess I’m not a savage : )

You can wear it either way!

Nah, that article makes fun of the tuck, too. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a person tuck at a sporting event in my life.

By the way I pronounce “inferences” like you….not Lisa.

Missed the boob out of the dress again. Duh!
Seems that the #asw hash tag switches from conference to fun around 6:00 pm every day.

OK, you’re redeemed for the tuck. :)

I am not in agreement with you guys on the solo vs panel sessions.

I would rather sit through a presentation by one person than have to sit there and have everyone introduce themselves on a panel. That usually waste 10-15 minutes depending on their ego. You only have enough time to get all the info provided and having an introducing time to me is a waste of time.

Shawn Collins January 25, 2012 at 7:00 am

I instruct the moderators to introduce all panelists and to read the bios we have in the program. If anybody didn’t do that, please let me know, because I hate the speakers giving their own intros, too, and won’t tolerate such a waste of time.

Shawn it didn’t happen at this Summit. When I look at presentations to attend on agendas I usually avoid panels at all cost. Just a personal preference.

Daniel M. Clark January 27, 2012 at 1:04 pm

I actually didn’t know that. Each of the four of us did his/her own introduction, but all combined, it only took 2 minutes and 16 seconds, so we didn’t waste too much time ;)

I’ll keep that in mind for next time if/when I do another panel though.

Shawn Collins January 27, 2012 at 1:10 pm

Daniel doesn’t read my emails. :(

Daniel M. Clark January 27, 2012 at 10:12 pm

Sure I do! Mostly… apparently…

You got me curious so I checked all the speaker-related emails and I do see that there’s a line in the one that went out to moderators that says to introduce everyone with a brief bio that can be found on the Agenda page.

Color me suitably chastised :)
