Mercy, I think I made it. Today was the post-con for the PASS Summit, and I was in a great session hosted by Louis Davidson and Paul Nielsen. I say "hosted" because it was really more a guided, interactive discussion than a lecture, which is great for PASS, and especially great for the end of PASS when everyone's eyes are a little glazed over. It was great to get quality time with these two powerful brains.
I also got to meet a couple more great folks - Aaron Bertrand and John Paul Cook, among others.
The facility folks were breaking down all the banners and booths during the day, which is always a little bittersweet. I was powerfully reminded of this feeling I used to have when I was a kid, watching TV, the credits would roll at the end of Dukes of Hazzard and Waylon Jennings would start in singing the theme song. I'd looked forward to the show all week, and it was awesome, and yet over too soon, which made me a little sad.
[If you are not familiar with the Dukes of Hazzard, it was one of the worst and most successful television programs in the U.S. in the early '80s. It appealed, completely transparently and without even attempting sophistication, to the American boy's ideal of muscle-car-driving southern Robinhood/outlaw. Plus, they jumped a Dodge Charger over something in every episode. I was eleven, OK? :-) ]
