A Round-Up of Scotch on the Rocks

March 19, 2011 · 4 Comments

Following hot on the heels of OpenCF Summit in Dallas, I headed to England (this time with my wife) for Scotch on the Rocks in beautiful Edinburgh, Scotland. I spent a lot of time engaged in hallway talks during the day and long discussions in the bar during the evenings so I must confess that I saw very, very few of the sessions. I would have attended more sessions but I was generally a bit late to each one (due to aforementioned hallway conversations) and it seemed that every session I wanted to attended was already completely packed out the door - my sense is that the Apex International Hotel, while perfectly wonderful in many ways, doesn't have enough large conference rooms to handle the number of attendees that Scotch is attracting these days.

With that complaint out of the way, how was the conference? Well organized, well attended and packed with great content.

Scotch on the Rocks 2011 - I'm speaking...

September 01, 2010 · 6 Comments

I'm very pleased to have been accepted as a speaker for Scotch on the Rocks 2011! Wow! What an incredible line up of speakers! It's going to be an awesome conference!

SOTR 2008 was incredible so I was very sorry to have missed SOTR 2009 - due to my wife breaking her ankle! Schedule and finances got in the way of me even considering SOTR 2010.

So what will I be speaking about?

To be honest, I don't know. Topics will be announced in about five or six weeks. I submitted three suggestions to the SOTR folks. I don't know what they'll pick.

But I want to open it up to everyone who'll be at SOTR 2011 - what would you like me to talk about? If there's a strong preference for a topic, even if it isn't one that I submitted, we'll see what we can do about accommodating your choice!
