So, this is a note to myself when I consider attending next year: don't.
The event has been around for a few years, now, and instead of making an effort to include new people, you're kind of expected to know it already. Sort of along the same lines as proving to the bank you don't need a loan in order to obtain a loan.The bloggers are there to see other bloggers and the big guns. They'd really have preferred you'd stayed at home, despite telling each other, "we'll get a beer later."If you're going to have a website or app providing information, have it be, at least, as accurate and functional as the handwritten whiteboard in the lobby.
