Eileen has blogged (http://eileenbrown.wordpress.com/2009/11/10/things-you-dont-notice-at-tech-ed/) about how much goes into preparation for Tech*Ed. As ever it\’s a mammoth operation, and if you really stop to think about the implications of everything it is truly staggering.
That the \’noises off\’ about issues are so relatively muted is a real testament to the team that does it. I\’ve had my share of complaints over the years, and I do always try to find suggestions for improvements rather than just bitch – at times it might not come over like it, but I really do care for Tech*Ed and it really pleases me to see it still here after all these years, and running so well.
This year\’s Tech*Ed has to have been that bit harder as it\’s the first time it\’s been to a new country and city in 7 years.
It\’s easy to complain, but I cannot think of any conference/event I\’ve been to that caters as well for it\’s delegates, even ones 1/100th the size.
I challenge anyone to do as good a job as FITCHlive and Eileen. Hats off to you all.
