Vitamin CH Chocolate: that substance without which we would get nothing done
What a month November is turning out to be. All kinds of good things happening in my life, all at the same time.
 

PodCampAZ

What a weekend!!! Over 500 people came together to network, learn, win prizes, eat, drink, be merry, etc. My sessions weren't as full as I would have liked (10 to 20 in each), but those that were there were very willing to talk about the topics at hand. Other than session time, I spent the days running around getting the prizes sorted.
 
Unlike last year's epic fail on the prize distribution, this year we only had an epic fail half the time. The first day, we tried to do a normal random name draw and announce on Twitter thing. That didn't work. Over dinner at the party at Chinos, we came up with a better idea: A fake silent auction.
 
Sunday we put out a sign up sheet for each prize. If you were interested in winning that prize, you put your name down. Twice during the day we pulled numbers for winners for each sheet. The winners had a pre-set amount of time to pick up the prizes. Anything not picked up went into the next drawing.
 
It worked really well - we gave away almost all the prizes and everyone was happy with what they won.
 
The rest of the weekend? Awesome Awesome Awesome. There aren't words to describe it.
 

The election

Obama won! What a relief! The right candidate (in my humble opinion). The right time. The right changes to come.
 

The upcoming move…

Yup - you heard that right. I am moving on. My contract with allvoices to get the community position up and running is almost over. I have accepted another position to start right after. The new position is with a superstealth startup. I will be leading a team of community people helping owners of small to midsized businesses find the answers they need. The new company is based out of San Francisco. I will be moving there by early December.
 
Bruce? He is still at the same job. He will be doing the AZACC user group tour from December 1 to 21 (taking vacation to do it). That tour will be on TechSmith products, so you know it will be good. He will be joining me in San Francisco next year - probably in the January/February time frame.
