NYC, here I come!

Okay, I walked into a restroom and it was flooded. I was approached by a gray-market cabbie whispering “Taxi” to everyone that walked by. I’m in a room where they’re turning off the water to the sink, shower and toilet from 12:01 a.m. to 5 a.m to make repairs. And the high temperature tomorrow is going to be a scorching 34 degrees Fahrenheit. Where am I?

I’m in NEW YORK CITY, baby!! Here’s the thing about New York. It’s gritty, and it’s cold right now, and it’s wonderful. New York has an energy that you just feel in your bones.

I’m checked into the hotel and I picked up my registration materials. Woohoo, it’s SES time again:

SES NYC 2006

I haven’t had a net connection for a few days, so I’m behind on email and *way-behind* on approving comments. I’ll be tackling both soon. By the way, in the Atlanta airport, I found a quiet seat by a power outlet at my gate. I happily plugged in and wifi’ed for an hour or so before I realized that the power outlet wasn’t active. It was like a decoy trap designed to sniff out geeks with laptops. Very sneaky. 🙂

For the next few days, I am here.

  1. Glad to see you made it ok, Matt.

  2. Hey Matt – you chose the NYC conference (34 Fahrenheit) over Sydney (77 Fahrenheit today) – so you aren’t allowed to complain about the weather!!

    You could learn some more about how delegation is supposed to work from your US colleagues currently here in Sydney. I’m sure Brian will have a great time! Maybe next year?
