My week at The Orange Conference was a thrill. It was such a great time of inspiration and learning, as well as meeting all kinds of wonderful people. If you’ve been reading my blog then you’ve already seen my summaries from some of the breakouts and hopefully you’ve read some of the live blogging posts while me and many others sat in large sessions. I promise to pull back on the twitter rate that I kept up last week, and I’m suspending the daily twitter summaries as blog posts.
Here are some of the things I learned at Orange this year:
- Matt McKee really does indeed own and wear white pants.
- Purchasing a Macbook may have indeed been the best technology decision I’ve ever made. I used this Macbook around the clock, and never once had to reboot to help it recover from a crash. Nice!
- Kenny Conley is very, very tall.
- That I can indeed live on only 4 hours of sleep a night. (at least for 3 days or so…)
- Gina McClain is very, very short.
- That I really enjoy telling our story of collaboration to others in “the industry.”
- If you twitter 100 times in one day, that your thumbs get very sore.
- Sam Luce does some great impressions. In the week I witnessed a spot-on imitation Jim Wideman, Kenny Conley and Matt McKee. I also heard the Indian, Irish, and English Cockney accents he has as a part of of his mad humor skills.
- That others are as disturbed by puppets as I am.
- I really enjoy having an espresso machine at my disposal for the entirety of a conference.
