Today was a busy one. My day started in Las Vegas at 6AM and now I'm composing this message after midnight in San Diego. I had an analyst meeting first thing in the morning which I immediately followed with my keynote for the RSDC. Some people get really freaked out talking to large groups, but it's never bothered me; I try to present as if I were having a personal, one-on-one conversation, I try to make my topic approachable, and I also try to make my talk actionable (or at least make my audience learn something or think about the topic in a new way).
After the keynote, I had a panel discussion and then more interviews, finally dashing off to the airport just in time to be there for a flight that was ultimately delayed by four hours. Arriving in LAX, I then drove down to San Diego, where I'm attending yet another IBM event. My blogging at the RSDC is now over, but I'l continue to blog this part of the week's work.
