ALA - Fun but too big
Last week I vacationed at ALA prior to a visit with my Dad. I've written up a few sessions over at Free Government Information.
It was great to meet people and match names to faces and to hook up with people that I'd previously met at govdocs conferences that I don't get to any more.
But it was just so big! I missed so many people that I would have liked to have met. And then I had to pass up invites for things that would have involved 4 hours plus driving (hi Stephen K).
Will I spend another vacation at ALA? Perhaps, but not certain. Especially since I owe my VERY supportive spouse a traditional vacation (i.e. not programmed with colleagues) sometime soon.
