Favor


Guess Where

Today Joel and I marked as a “Day of Favor”. We made it safely to Orlando for our Web Development conference. Because we arrived at 10am, we had the day to get settled in and then headed to the east coast.

Headed to the Kennedy Space Center for a tour and lots of pics. Joel has been taking them and I’ll try to nab some of them later. It was 85 degrees today. Then we drove down to Cocoa Beach and got some gifts from Ron Jon. Dinner at a place on the ocean called “Grillz”. Had my first tuna steak. Nicey nice. Then back to the hotel in Orlando.

Our wifi wasn’t working, so we had to switch rooms after being on the phone with their tech support for an hour. I’m sick of being on the phone with tech support….

Anyway, I’m wasted. Didn’t sleep last night. It’s midnight. And I’ve got to be fresh for our conference tomorrow morning.

Don’t think I’ll have too much more to post this week. Headed into a hotel conference room for three days. Unless you’re reading this and you’re a Web developer.

The thing was that all day we just seemed to find stuff we were looking for, got in lines at the right time, got coupons for stuff, the temp was perfect, and we simply enjoyed the day. It was a great day. And everything worked. Favor, baby. Favor.

Refresh: Day 2

Wow. I’m tired. There was an overwhelming amount of information presented today. An amazing conference. The best part of the day was probably simply talking to some folks in front of us. Thanks for saying hello Cindy Jason and Jackson! And thanks for the high-end shirt. I’lll wear it with pride.

I have so many things to think about today. I think one of the main things I’m going to do is externally process through this Web migration and redesign on a new blog. I’ll let you all know when it’s ready.

Bottom line: I’m ready to head home. Even if it’s crap weather. I’m ready to be home. To be a husband. Father. Friend. But first finish strong and really use this opportunity to be with the cream of the crop of Web developers in the world.

Well, it’s halfway through the first day and I’ve got like 10 pages of notes. Good stuff. This is my view. There are about 70 people in a room that I really feel could change the world. Lot’s of ideas and talent. Two sessions to go and a salad/sammich from TGI Fridays, a refill on water and I’m ready for round 2. I may have to buy a sweatshirt while I’m here at the Reebok outlet next door. The A/C in here is oppressive! It’s around 60 or lower. Ouch! Wish we could do the conference outside. Nicey-nice.
