Conferencing

So I have survived my first day! Except for the opening keynote, which was rather random with very little connection to the topic at hand, all the sessions have been interesting and, once I've had some time to digest, I'll expect they'll be useful too. On topics like creating useable websites and how to figure out what your patrons want and cool new Internet search tools and tricks. I "track-hopped" today, but the next couple of days I expect to spend on the social computing track for the most part, learning about stuff like using RSS and wikis and IM and MySpace to connect with users.

I ran into a few people I knew, from the dotcom, and a vendor rep I used to work with. I left early, though, because the last bit was just a huge schmooze fest and I'm so bad at networking with strangers. Hopefully it will be easier tomorrow, when I might recognize some faces.

And now, time to find some dinner.

don't shy away from the schmoozing, remember everyone feels just as awkward about it as you do...

I did better at it today, actually going up to a speaker from yesterday and telling her how much I liked her presentation, asking another speaker a question after his presentation (and I even got his card for follow-up), chatting with a few other random folks, including someone I randomly knew from library school, and people at the SJSU reception this evening. Still doesn't come naturally, though...

    Ooooh, I would totally be down with an all-BioWare Kiss Battle, that sounds like so much fun. I would totally prompt for some older IPs like Jade Empire, too :D

    Give me notice and I'll go spam the…

    I've already gotten at least one request to make it an all-Bioware canons kiss battle, which might encourage more participation given the current state of hype for Andromeda... :)

    If I go for it, I…

    I'd love one, and I'm sure the gang over on dragon_age would be (although they're we're all hyping up over Mass Effect Andromeda right now, but still worth posting a…

    I'm concerned and I don't primarily use DW. I am thinking about backing up my content there, but I'm just not sure about how it will work out. I do need to get on this, though.
