So, as you can see via the proof above, I finally met Brian Oberkirch in person. Amazing how you can meet someone for the first time (really), but you know (just about) everything that has been on their minds lately through their blogs. Quite awesome.
Jeremiah Owyang, who I didn’t even know was attending, took the photo. Was nice to see him again. He said he liked the new blog design.
I also met Tara Hunt, a total starstruck moment. I’m like… “you rule.” She’s just… brilliant. While waiting in line to meet Tara (yep, rock stars have lines), I saw Gillian Carson silenty sitting in the front row. So we talked a bit. I love the Carsons, I’ll tell ya. I also chatted with Ryan a bit later. Talked nothing about tech. That was pretty nice.
After meeting Tara, I also met Chris Messina for the first time in person. At least I think it… yeah, it was. Tough to remember sometimes.
