I attended the first iWeek in back in 2002, 06, 07 and 08. It’s well worth it.. and it’s free.
iWeek confirms the un-conference “paradox” that free is better.. community driven and democratised events are of more value than expensive and restricted conferencing events.
It was a busy few days. The food was good.. too good, snacks, lunches, dinners every night. I met a number of interesting people.
I was invited to a panel discussion on the Wireless day as the WAPA chair. I think the wireless session went well.. we had good feedback.
I was elected to the ISPA management committee at the AGM.
Thanks to Elaine, Debbie and Cheryl (WhereNext Event Management) for organising the event. Thanks to Uniforum and the ISPA for the two dinners.
ps. I figure I should just get an Apple laptop again.. it’s a much better road warrior tool than the Ubuntu/HP. Seems the E71 was the toy to have.. bumped into at least 5 very happy new E71 owners at iWeek.
