I Need To Tell You This

Kyle Reed // @kylereed

And I am back…

I am sure you missed me as much as I missed you.

I am in the mood for a quick hitter type post today so here it goes:

-It amazes me that Coffee is the perfect winter treat but also a perfect summer treat. No matter what season it is, give me a tall bold coffee from Starbucks and I am happy.
-I haven’t listened to the band The Myriad lately and was reminded how much I really like their stuff the other day. Listen here
-It is getting to the point now that you do not have to attend a conference and still get all the info presented. Guys like Tim Schraeder do a great job of covering conferences. Check out these notes from Echo Conference.
-Will we still be attending conferences in 3 years?
-You can learn a lot by watching kids play with each other. You can also learn a lot about the kids parents as well.
-Family drama is lame. I have experienced enough to last me a couple years. This leads me to wonder out of my 2 sisters and me, which one is going to be the “crazy” one?
-Feeling bummed that it is August.
Excited that the Fall is around the corner which means that my members only jackets are getting ready to be worn with pride.

Got some thoughts to share?

    I bet we won’t be attending conferences in 3 years. There’s no reason to spend the money.

    If conferences & speakers aren’t willing to cheaply encourage, teach & edify other church leaders, they probably aren’t worth spending $300 to go listen to.

      I agree.
      And honestly we can get most of that content they are presenting a conferences on the speakers blogs. I am pretty sure that a lot of people go to conferences just to hang out with friends. That is why I go

        but you can’t get all the content, and in fact, most of the good stuff. the emotional connection is sometimes the most important, how a speaker says something is not the same as reading a blog post.

          True, but I think people will bypass that because of cost.
          But I totally agree that I would rather have that in person version.

      disagree. conferences are great. there’s something that you cant get in the physical world with conferences. i’ll still be there.
      but, i think they will change a lot in execution, design, and attendance.

        I would go to every single one if I could

    My grandma once told me if you have to wonder that…it’s you. :)

      Dang, she is probably right.
      I worry about it all the time

    I hardly attend conferences now and I have literally no idea how people can go to more than one a year right now.

    • http://thoughtsaboutnothing.com Kyle Reed

      Yup, in a perfect world we could make it to multiple conferences and be able to network and hang out.

    Yeah, I agree with John about conferences too. I don’t go for the content the speakers share… I go for the people the speakers bring. As Cory Doctorow said, “Conversation is king. Content is just something to talk about.”
