The conference was very well done, Derek. You and August did a fantastic job. The only thing we wanted was more - more networking, more time to get to all the great sessions, etc. When you want more of something, that means it's really good. And thanks for agreeing to take the job! Best, Claudia
Congrats Derek for the great job done running the SCIP 09 program committee. Being occupied at the Digimind booth, I did not get a chance to directly participate in conferences however I discussed with several attendees who witnessed their appreciation attending the SCIP 09 millesime.
Great job on SCIP09, even more as your wedding is only a month away! I will be blogging about sessions I attended in the coming weeks, as well as the new CTI book released by CI Foundation!
Here is today's blog http://cooperativeintelligenceblog.com/2009/04/27/are-we-in-a-rut-in-competitive-intelligence-innovation-scip09-post-conference/, which is a follow-up to Bill Fiora's discussion on this CI Ning, "Are we in a rut?"
Great work chairing SCIP09 last week Derek - you and program committee put together an important collective contribution to the CI field. I just thought I'd say that in "public" here ;-) for once, since I only ever give kudos privately.
Treacy was a killer keynote too - I pulled nuggets to my Twitter feed if you want to review - http://twitter.com/arikjohnson - one of the best I've ever seen... and I've seen a few.
Good to see you in Chicago. Great conference and job well done. Pulling it all together is a lot of work for the Program Committee, Board, other volunteers and the speakers. Thank you for your leadership. It is greatly appreciated. Mel
