#WebSummit Diary: the night before the day before…
So here I sit, beavering on my MacBook endeavouring to get down to Inbox Zero before Monday morning hits. A clean inbox means a clean mind… so I’ve heard.
It’s the night before the day before Web Summit begins. Tomorrow I shall be flying in style with RyanAir (!) to Dublin. I’m bringing the family along to keep me company. My dear wife and 6 month old daughter. We come as a package deal you see. It will be the little one’s first flight, but at least it’s a short one from London to Dublin.
As the Web Summit has been drawing closer, I’ve become increasingly consumed with wanting to make sure I get the most out of it. I have mixed feelings about going. I’m a simple fellow really, and in some respects I’d prefer to just curl up away from everyone and read my books. That said, throwing myself into a 3 day tech conference with 20,000 attendees will certainly be an experience worth having.
I’ll be exhibiting with Point Shout on Day 2 in the “Big Data” section. If you can explain to me the difference between Big Data and Little Data, I’ll buy you a pint. Anyway, I’ve got my business cards. They’re square… such rebelliousness! I’ve made a few connections on Twitter already with people that will be at the Web Summit, so it’s good to feel a little connected with the crowd before I turn up.
If you’re good, tomorrow I’ll tell you about a random Twitter conversation that is going to result in me making a small donation to charity and a guy I’ve never met before will be wearing a Point Shout T-shirt all day on Day 2. Here’s to awesome randomness.
Until tomorrow my nerdy geeky techie chummy chum chums.http://blog.jonjackson.co.uk/post/101622235372/websummit-diary-the-night-before-the-day-before#sthash.Ij3QoG5r.dpuf
