Absolutely. I really enjoyed it. Feel free to make me put my time where my mouth is, as I would LOVE to work on a non CI track, e.g. work with folks in the Business Development Institute, Project Management, Pricing, Proposal Management, Strategic Planning, Marketing, etc., to bring in new blood. But then, you can put me where you need me. Claudia -

Great conference, August - I just wanted more. More networking, more time to get to sessions. You and Derek did a fantastic job and I am sure 2010 will be even better. I'd love to see some of the suggestions from the active dialogs baked into next year, such as a track that consists of topics outside of the CI community but contains information of use to CI professionals.

Thank you for recommending the TED's video of Jonathan Haidt's lecture. I am reading some essays from Russell Kirk and just finished one on Burke. It was encouraging to be able to appreciate Haight's comment on Burke all the more. I have some acquaintances that relish political matters and I shall be forwarding the link to them.

August, how are you getting on with your iPhone? Some of us just need to have it, others don't. What's in it for you? Good luck with the Chicago Annual Summit in 2009!
