I am here in Carlsbad, CA finally. The flight on United was fine, but I still can't understand why they don't have power outlets in business or first class on a cross-country flight!
Tonight is the opening reception and there is supposed to be a Texas Hold-Em tournament. I've never played the game myself, but there is a first time for everything. I am taking time to rehearse my presentation and catch up on work writing and e-mail. There is always more to do than can fit in the time alloted. I guess that is an unwritten business rule.
Tomorrow is the official opening of the conference and I'm looking forward to the keynote speaker, Susan Cramm. Her background should make it an interesting presentation. Then my breakout sessions are at 10:15 and 1:45. After my sessions, I'll find a way to post my slides online for any attendees that may want it.
