For a good number of weeks, you would remember how I have been mentioning how, with all of this travelling going around all over the place, I am starting to find less and less time to comment back further on the lovely input that regular readers of this blog have been leaving behind as comments. I still read them all, each and everyone of them!, but over time I am finding it increasingly more difficult to capture additional thoughts, do some more research, come up with some worth while commentary and share it with you folks. And it is starting to hit me. Don’t despair, though, I am working on it, and for sure, I know that I would eventually get there. Back in full force commenting on some of the brilliant stuff you have been sharing all along!
In fact, believe it or not, I am already using some of your input as part of conversations I have been having live, i.e. face to face, with folks I have met at the various events I have been going to all along. Yet, still can’t find a way to feed that input as follow up comments into the original conversations. But not to worry, we will eventually get there. I am certain of that.
However, for now, I just thought I would share with you folks my two cents worth of this blog post, as a token of eternal gratitude for hanging out there, still reading some of these entries and adding your thoughts that in most cases have increased the quality of the original post(s). You all know how I feel about the readership of this blog. Without it, I am sure things would have been completely different, if non-existent. So the fact that I now have got a chance to say "Thanks!" is an opportunity I am not going to let it go, just like that!
Thus, just to reward all of those folks who have stuck around through thick and thin, here is my chance to share that token of gratitude. I have just been provided with a complimentary pass code for the Web 2.0 Expo (Where you know I will be attending & speaking at the event) and that basically means that one of you could be making it to the event for free! Yes, indeed, for FREE!
That’s right, I have got a complimentary pass code for one of you to make it to Berlin and enjoy what promises one of those Web 2.0 events difficult to forget during 2008! And, like I couldn’t have done it any other way, I will be more than happy to hand over that code to the first person who leaves a comment on this blog post, claiming it! Thus if you wanted to go to the event, but didn’t know how you were going to be able to make it, this may be your chance.
Just leave a comment on this post, indicating your interest to attend and the pass is yours! And since it is just a single pass, the only rule applied over here for this would be first come, first served! So, hurry up, get in touch, grab the code and I will be seeing you in Berlin! And who knows, we may be able to share a drink or two, or food, if you would want to get together! Give me a shout along the way, if you would want to do that!
For now, time to wrap up this blog post, get the pass code ready, and anxiously awaiting for the first commenter to come through to hand over that code! Like I said, it is the least I could do for the readers of this blog. I just wish I could hand more than code, because all of you deserve that and so much more for still dropping by day in day out and commenting on the blog and making it a better place than whatever it was intended to be in the first place!
Thanks ever so much for that! And let’s get the show started! Who is going to Berlin with me?!? 😀
