My Exhausting Day

It has been an exhausting day. I was at Globalcomm early this morning and the booth traffic seemed a bit better. Many exhibitors were still complaining but one in the back right told me they have great qualified leads coming to their booth. This particular company increased their pre-show marketing and that seems to have been a factor in their increase.

I lucked out in terms of travel. I left the convention center in a rush and there was no cab line at around 1:00 pm. I got to the airport with no traffic. I immediately went standby on a flight that left an hour earlier than planned and then found another flight that was delayed slightly. I rushed to the gate of this newly discovered flight. I had to take a middle seat but I got to Dallas ahead of schedule.

I speak tomorrow for Interactive Intelligence in Dallas (where I am now). It was 110 degrees here today and I hear tomorrow will be hotter.

I just had dinner at a Brazilian steak house and it was amazing. I love those restaurants. I have to practice the presentation now and get some rest. See you all tomorrow. In the mean me here are some stories of interest for you to peruse:
