Signal today will be short. I am a bit spent from running an all day conference which was just … really, really good. I mean, start with Arianna and Tim, end with the guy who did the Superbowl halftime show. Add an oversold standing room only crowd that stayed the whole day. End result: Happy conference chair. So here are some links from the event, and other interesting news….To the links…
