I finished up Friday with a few meetings that had been up through a contractor that I sub GIS work with. We were helping a company in the Pacific Northwest set up for the 'future' or what I perceive as 6 years ago. Everybody is very excited that they are making the jump and hopefully we can help them get where they want to be.
Saturday was really good too, but for the life of me I can not remember what I watched. I might have to go back and review the agenda.
I think that this is one of the better conferences that I have been too. My talk was ok. You should never really be satisfied with them. It keeps you pushing forward. I really like regional conferences because you can connect with people much easier and also see information that is more topical. It seems like a lot of archaeologists like to run to the big ones, but I feel that they are so impersonal. It is just shuffle in and shuffle out. The regional ones are better for networking. They are great starting points for undergrads too. Get a couple posters and maybe a talk before you even get to grad school or your first job.
In other news, I am heading to the Southeast Washington and Northeast Oregon GIS User Group meeting tomorrow. Do not tell my employers though, I sort of just requested a general PTO day. It is only part of the day and I will probably log in in the afternoon so no one is even going to notice that I am gone. I am looking forward to this one too. I did not get much of a chance to talk to some of the people there the last time I went. This time will be better though and I can hear the buzz about local GIS.
