Here’s my plan (subject to change)

Yes. I understand that there are conflicts in the list below. And yes, I understand that I will change my mind, or get engaged in a conversation and miss a session. I understand all of that. Nonetheless, here’s my plan for late next week in Denver.

And yes, I will gladly accept recommendations for sessions I may have overlooked. I have highlighted (in red type) people whose work you need to check out if you have not already (with an emphasis on people who my blog readership may not have run across—I’m not gonna highlight Dan Meyer ’cause you know who he is.)

(Note: I would like to point out that this session will be painful for me to attend, as he mopped the floor with my sorry-ass pony tail in our Chicago debate. Also, I could not get into his session in Philadelphia last year, so SHOW UP EARLY!)

  1. Thanks for the suggestions! I will hopefully be attending and am still digging through the 730ish sessions. Do you know anyone else who’s going? I’d love to meet up. @abrowningcouch

  2. I’ll probably see you in a Chazan session or two on Thursday.

  3. You’ve seen mine. Enjoy a hotel bar or something.

  4. I don’t mind seeing a presentation over again, if I know the ideas are good. See
