An exciting time indeed, just six days away will mark my first venture to a real sizable web conference. It’ll also be my first time on the east coast, and the jump in city size from Minneapolis to New York should provide a pretty good squelching feeling in my stomach.
However, I’m quite excited to go see some of the folks I have been idolizing in true geeky fashion (Andy Clarke, The Zeldman, and Jonathan Snook for example) for the last few years as well as meet up with an acquaintance with good musical taste, Elliot Jay Stocks.
For those who haven’t heard, FOWD is Carsonified’s (previously Carson Systems) first convention on US soil, and they have a star studded line up of speakers for the two day event. One day of speakers and a second day of workshops (which sold out before I bought my ticket, damn!) should provide plenty of web geekery for any who can attend. As of time of writing they still have some tickets available for the speaker sessions.
Hopefully I’ll run into a few of you there, granted, Clockwork is running a mustache contest that began today, so I may be a bit scruffy by then.
Another (hopefully) useful article is coming soon rather than more of me babbling, stay tuned!
