Three or four days at Gnomedex plus two weeks of vacation adds up to the longest time I’ve taken from work in…forever? Vacations have always been something of a “forced interlude.” You get it out of the way and then get back to what you do. This one feels different. On the other hand, I’m certain to spend a good chunk of time online every day so the lines between work and non-work grow ever more blurred.
But I need change my physical space, if not my virtual space and hopping back a few times zones (Seattle) will be a good start. And I’ll be with 300 people who eat, sleep and breath blogging, podcasting and all things digital. I’m looking forward to being the dumbest guy in the room. (Insert joke here)
