This CEC thing will wear you out!
By Scottdickson-Oracle on Oct 03, 2006
I had these grand intentions of writing some sort of brilliant synopsis of all the amazing things I had seen during the first day of CEC, but this CEC stuff will wear you right out! Long, long days full of firehoses to the brain make you just want to sleep. Couple that with the fact that the folks back home on east-coast time still want you do do your day job and be on con calls convenient to them. 5am and 6am calls start the day, followed by sessions until 7pm. The the after-session stuff goes on until late. Then you collapse in your room. But, wait... Didn't you commit to putting together a slide deck and sending it out before tomorrow morning. Gotta get that done. Finally to bed after 12, only to start again at 5am.....
It's a great opportunity to be here at CEC. Tons to see and hear and learn about that I can take home and use directly, but this CEC thing will wear you out!
