I attended a conference this week. Conferences are interesting because you usually learn something, but not always what you assume you will. Here are a few things I learned at mine.
Steak is the worst food to serve at a conference banquet.
Trade show floors would be easier to navigate if you were deaf or rude.
There is apparently a large group of people who spend more time and effort worrying about and improving their "virtual life" than their real life. And they are stoked about it.
I don't really like magicians.
People often ask you what you like or dislike, but they would learn more about you if they asked what you're indifferent about.
