I don’t care what your parents told you: Hang out with the cool kids.
I got to eat dinner in a friggin bank vault! (Check out the link and the sentence will make a lot more sense.)
Liz Weston and my mom both used to work at the Anchorage Daily News. So we were palling around with her and somehow got ourselves invited to a dinner. In restaurant featuring an old bank vault.
A bank. vault.
Anyway, it was a lot of fun. And it underscores my latest theme in my posts: Ride the coattails of anyone and everyone.
Point being, we ate in a friggin’ bank vault!
I guess I should get to at least one detail of the actual conference. (Bank. Vault. Okay, really done now.)
Both Greg Go and Will Chen from Wise Bread had very interesting and engaging presentations. I learned quite a bit about how behind I am in social media — gee, thanks Greg.
Now I’m trying to rationalize getting a smartphone, so I could tweet and Facebook (yes, that’s a verb now) on the go. Problem: I’m rarely on the go. So that’s a bust.
Will Chen had a very funny and informative seminar about getting and keeping corporate campaigns. If I ever decide to go after the big fish, that’ll come in handy.
Plus, Chen’s slides mainly involved Star Wars figurines illustrating his points. How do you not love that?
