I was at SMX East very briefly. I sandwiched in a 36-hour stint in The Big Apple in between a family mini-vacation in La Jolla (sweet!) and a trip to Chile to work with our development team down there – very nice place, Chile – never been there before. SMX was great as usual, as I got to catch up with some old friends as well as make some new ones. Shout out to Frank Grasso (new friend) and Mark Knowles (old friend) – we had a great time one evening at Ramblas tapas bar in the West Village.
I had the privilege of speaking on two panels with some really great folks, and I think the audience was pretty into it. They asked a lot of thoughtful and sophisticated questions. When I got back, I wrote a piece on Search Engine Land that recaps the two panels. As always I welcome any critique or criticism on these two topics – I always tell folks that I’m passionate about this stuff and I could go on and on for hours talking about it. Look me up, people!
