It’s Saturday a.m. before the first speaking session of the morning.
It was an exciting moment when Dave Taylor began to introduce Charles J. Orlando yesterday. Only a couple people in the room understand the level of work that’s gone into putting this on with as few people as we’ve had directly involved. For me, it’s been almost five months of almost daily involvement. Today’s the last day and it’s hard to believe this year’s event is almost a wrap.
Looking at the photos that I got Christina from T-Mobile to shoot of the six of us interviewed by CNN I’m really angry at myself. In my lap looks like I have two inner tubes tucked under my shirt. What a painful sight that was to see. And what a wake up call.
My quest upon my return to Dallas is to begin an immediate exercise program and controlled diet of good foods. It’s got to happen or I’m going to go nuts.
ORGANIZING AN EVENT V. LEARNING AT AN EVENT
I’ve been so tied up getting things going for the conference, there were too many sessions and speeches yesterday I was compelled to miss. That’s the hard part of being an event coordinator and being someone who can enjoy the event itself. I wish there’d been a way to make it to more of what was happening at the time instead of making what came next easier, but such as it is, I’ve had a great experience.
WHEN IT COMES TO YOUR FAMILY
I’m heading up a panel today with Eric Elkins and Doug Block to talk about how much is too much when it comes to sharing information about your family. Yesterday we shot a bunch of short interviews with the moms and dads here at Modern Media Man Summit. Today, we show a condensed version of their comments. It’ll be up here in the Website with an opportunity for you to share your perspective as well. Check back in later in the day.
STATS ON THE DAD MARKET PLACE
I’m headed to the first event of the morning. A discussion about statistical findings about dads, blogging and the marketplace. Going to be some interesting information to share from Dad Central Consulting.
