Am I the only one who's finding this Monday particularly painful? Not
to mention it was 16 degrees this morning. Brrrr!

I feel like I need to spend a week on a mountaintop meditating on all
the things I learned over the weekend. And following up with all the
great people I met. And reading all the books I need to read. Despite
my extreme exhaustion on the (delayed) flight last night, I got
inspired to redesign the interface for my crap-ass HP printer. It's a
sickness! But at least I finally know what I want to be when I grow up.

Anyway, thanks to everyone who organized the conference so
seamlessly. And to SCAD for putting up with us and seeming glad to do
so. And to Bill Buxton, who missed his boarding call because of his
"great powers of concentration," proceeded to regale the rest of us
airport strandees with tales of his past life exploits over dinner,
and then actually said he was glad he'd missed his flight. Go figure.

Ditto!

I arrived back in Boston last night (quite a few IxDers on the leg from
Savannah to Charlotte) - 15 degrees, windy, really cold- *NOT *as nice as
the amazing weather, camaraderie, passion, excitement and energy I got from
meeting so many great people.
Special thanks to Dave and all the organizers - it really was a great
conference.

Ditto here, too! Just walked back into my office, and I'm having to
force myself to get back into the swing of things. :)

Great weekend, great to see old friends and make several new
connections! Now have lots (more) to think about, process, adapt, and
adopt. Thanks to everyone for an amazing energy level, and to the
organizers for their efforts. This was a huge success!
