Just back from Geneva and Lift06.
Big thanks to Laurent and all his helping hands, great work and highly appreciated!
As always these events gathers some of the smartest people I know, and not only the smartest, they're great company to boot! Even better, I meet new people that are equally smart and funny - that alone is reason enough too go to these things!
Many great presentations of course, my own 12 minutes show-a-bit of software I will not mention, rather will forget that while I solace myself that even the best like Guy Kawasaki took many years of presentations to get good at it :)
But it did lead to some good one-on-ones afterward where I had the chance to explain more, and that it needed.
Appreciation goes to Ian, Jens Christian (who gave me hard time post presentation for not having given more of the background, duly noted Jens Christian ;), Amy, Erik, Joshua, Thibault, Daniel, Beth, Noel, Christian and many, many more for highly engaging and enjoyable discussions and conversations!
Ian even ventured to play more with the current early-version of the thingamy so I expect some frustrated inquiries of "how does this work??" from the Jura mountains soon :)
Hugh and I did not feel that was enough so we had another fondue on Friday evening just to top it off! Being in Switzerland and all...
As it was all over Hugh's old friend Hamish took Hugh and myself for lunch in the countryside and really dotted the Is with a menu of Filet de Perche! Ahh Swiss food is delightful. Then back to Hamish's place to meet Wim and The Snacks and discuss SAP and other enterprise software stuff... :)
If Hamish had been a bit older he would have been a major member of Monty Python, I'm still hurting from laughing. Get this man his own TV show now!
Add that I now echo Hugh's "he's one of the smartest people I know" :)
Again, thank you all!
Back to the software development to-do list and some serious strategic issues - will soon be asking for suggestions in this place - why not ask the smart people (you) after all?
