It’s a week now since I headed off to be a panelist at the Bloggers Lunch at Microsoft’s TechEd event at the Gold Coast Convention Centre at Broadbeach. I was looking forward to posting here about the experience and the conversation, which for me was both enjoyable and thought-provoking.
But that evening I was hit by what the doctor described a couple of days later as “a bug”. I’m a lot better now than I was a week ago, so the bug has been blocked if not totally defeated. But my blogging has suffered. Having been warned by the doc that I had to make sure I did not develop pneumonia , I decided the work ethic could join me in having a good rest. And anyway, at that point even sitting up in bed to blog was not a realistic option.
Regrettably, I did not have a backup supply of pre-written posts, one of the measures included by Darren Rowse in his list of eight tips for what to do when you are sick, or in terms of having something ready in advance, before you get sick. Something to bear in mind for the future.
About the Bloggers’ Lunch panel at TechEd, Long Zheng blogged it live with some seriously good photography of all the panel and individual members. Nick Hodge blogged it live too and captured the conversation very impressively, imho.
