SOBCon08 Attendees to Mimic Gilligan’s Island

Summer of GeorgeHopefully with different results, because I have to be back at work on Monday. Liz Strauss posted on the official SOBCon site that Friday’s Open Comments night will take place on “Summer of George,” a party cruise boat with a special musical opening by Christine Kane.

I love party cruise boats, as they hold a special place in my heart. I took my wife of 18 months on a 3-hour dinner yacht cruise of Tampa Bay for our 4th anniversary just a couple of months before we got married. They are so fun and comfortable, and there’s never a lack of scenery or food.

I am very much looking forward to re-connecting with those folks from last year, especially Terry Starbucker, Muhammed Saleem, and Phil Gerbyshak. I’m also highly anticipating meeting my new business buddy, Cory Miller and his friend, Brian Gardner. I’m sure this year, I’ll meet new people and make new connections.

Oh, yeah, I almost forgot! Liz is announcing a new contest today on the SOBCon site.

So how about it? Does the boat cruise spice it up enough to push you over into the “in” crowd?

    Hey Jesse,

    Paul O’Flaherty here. We’ve talked before on your GITR blog. I saw this post and thought I’d let you know that I (along with the crew of Fuelmyblog.com) will be at SOBCon08 and look forward to meeting you there.

    See you there.

    I remember you. The Irish in Denmark post I did about my user interface.

    I’m the midget with a slight case of giantism. At a towering 5’4″, you can’t miss me, except in a crowd. Shoot. That might be a problem.

    I hope you see me there. I’ll probably see you.

    I’m game! Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go outside and make it look like I live in Florida instead of a cave. 😀

    When I’m on a roll with the live blogging, I catch it ALL. I may turn on the recorder on the laptop, though. Thanks for the tip.

    Um, Jesse, which cast member am I? I’m not wearing any coconut shells, and I’m not quite as heavy as Skipper. I was in the Navy, but I won’t be wearing my hat. You can Gilligan me if you like, though I like to think I’m more like The Professor.

    Phil,

    You are definitely the Professor. You keep everyone around you sane.
