My previous post covered what I thought about the NFJS conference and I listed the sessions I attended. Now, I’d like to brag and say that my highlight was dinner Saturday night.
Jay Zimmerman invited me to dinner with him and a number of the speakers. I was so out of my it wasn’t funny. We ate at Benihana’s and sat at one of the semi-circle tables. Working my way around the table it was: Jay Zimmerman, me, Ben Galbraith, Erik Hatcher, Jason Hunter, Venkat Subramaniam, and Ramnivas Laddad. The food was great and the conversation was even better. Topics ranged from Java, Sun, families, house buying, politics, and a few others. It really was awesome just hanging-out and talking with the brilliant minds that were at that dinner. It will be something I’ll talk about for a long time…. or until next year if I can convince Jay to take me to dinner again. 🙂
