So yes... I'm still alive over here. :)
My intentions were to blog about ILUG as it happened. The reality is that the wifi connection at the college had some issues with port blocking and coverage in the dorm rooms. As such, the laptop was pretty much restricted to registration and presentation activities. I'll recap when I get home later this week, but suffice it to say that once again it was an incredible event pulled off by incredible people. It's not easy to get so many people to take "ownership" of an event that is far different than most conferences you'll ever go to.
Ireland was great for both conference and visiting, and Scotland is incredible. Again, a recap when I get back and let all the events, impressions, and feelings wash over me.
