Chris Pirillo is a web-borne god of teh intertoobz. Don't believe me? Type "Chris" into Google and see what comes up first.
A couple of months ago, while I was laboring away on my machine, a Skype window popped open. It was from Chris, and all it had was a link to Gnomedex and the words, "And ^%$#*^ you if you can't do it this time."
How can I say no to that? So I am in fact going to Gnomedex this year! I'll be talking about skepticism online: how we do it, why we need it, and what we can all do to participate. Or at least, that's the plan. When I actually put my talk together I'll know what it's about then.
I am really, really excited about this. Chris knows a lot of cool people, and in the rare circumstances when we get a chance to hang out I always have fun. It seems like I've known him forever, too, and so I'm pretty confident this will be an exceptional event. I hope to see a lot of BABloggees there!
