Making the connection
Hey, that virtualcon was fantastic. I felt like I was being interviewed with the button stuck on fast forward. By the time it was finished I was exhausted. Reading it over this morning, I see that there were one of two questions I missed in the rush...
You can still go and read it here, amazingly coherent considering the pressure, but there are other authors and editors too.
When I was kid, the telephone was attached to the wall and you stood while answering it. Phone calls were short and to the point. If you rang anyone living outside your own very small post office area, you had to go through an exchange and often had to wait - they would ring you back after they made the connection. And now I can chat online to people from the US, UK and Australia, all at the same time...I love this world.
My thanks to everyone who turned up. I thoroughly enjoyed myself, and if anyone wants me to expand on what was said, just ask...
And thanks so much to all the organisers. If you can get to Conflux, the real con that is, do. You won't regret it.
