Back from Westminster, and Duffbert on a t-shirt!
I got back from Westminster, Colorado last night after attending the Penton editorial conference for two days. I had a great time. I met a number of talented people, participated in a lot of useful information exchanges and brainstorms, and laughed a lot. The e-Pro team of tech editors is made up of Libby (our leader, or so...), Chris Miller, Michael Fromin, and myself. I already knew Libby and Chris, but I had never met Michael. Great guy, and a hockey fanatic to boot. It didn't take us long to figure out we shared that in common, and we were quickly left to babble about all things hockey-related... :-) Michael won the article award for internal writers (well-deserved, I might add), I won an award for being the writer with the best on-time record for article due dates, and I also was awarded the e-Pro t-shirt award for my alter-ego, Duffbert...
Too funny... I'm sure Chris will have a number of pictures posted soon, including a new Miami Vice duo who made their law enforcement debut at Dave & Buster's after Friday night's dinner... You'll just have to head over there and see for yourself once the pics are posted.
All in all, it was a fantastic experience, and I feel like I'm part of a great team at Penton. I'm looking forward to continuing my writing and sharing for all of you.
