Nothing Beats Waking up at 4am

This is a short post to check in with everybody before my trip tomorrow. My concert went well, and I should eventually have some photos, because it was streamed live over the internet. I’m currently at home packing for my flight to New York, which leaves at 6am (!). I should be sleeping right now, but when I got home, I had a dozen emails from earlier today that needed to be dealt with.

I wish I had a little more time to sleep, because at this point the three hours I have ahead of me constitutes little more than a “nap,” but I’m excited about my trip. DOMAINfest has invited some stellar panelists for its small group sessions in the afternoon, including lawyer John Berryhill, Elliot Silver, Andrew Alleman, and others. I’m also looking forward to getting to meet a few notable Twitter friends, like my fellow Coca-Cola connoisseur, Chef Patrick.

If I don’t get some sleep, I won’t have any energy for the full day of festivities tomorrow. Plus the after-party. There’s always an after-party, right? It’s New York, so I’m not really expecting everything to wrap up at 10:30pm. I will post photos and a review of DOMAINfest later in the week!

    It was great meeting you at the conference and getting a chance to talk with you. I hope you did not wind up being too tired to make it back. As a new comer it is great to learn from you and the others that have more experience. I look forward to meeting again. Thanks for the input on my list of names.

    Hi, David! It was great meeting you, as well, and thanks for stopping by the blog! I'll be sending you an email – I had a few ideas based on the names you showed me. I just got back to D.C. today and should have a post up about the conference by later tonight.

    Hi, Mike. This was just the 1-day networking event in NY, but it was a blast. The panel discussions were particularly helpful, and it was really nice meeting a lot of the people I'd either heard about (or previously connected with) online. Long blog post forthcoming!
