I have a Pittcon story to tell that isn’t really that exciting but a lot of people have a hard time believing it. Most people can’t fathom it.
Despite posts to say “goodbye” and to indicate I was going to sell this trademark and blog, none of that has happened. I didn’t actually intend to keep this all going but I’ve been thinking about other things and have spent no time at all trying to determine the worth of this.
Around this time of year, people in the laboratory informatics industry seem to start talking quite a lot about the conferences. It’s around this time that people begin asking me if I’m attending things like Pittcon, SmartLabs Exchange and similar conferences.
TheIntegratedLab.com had a post regarding conferences: http://theintegratedlab.com/2010/08/conferences-head-count-and-content/ I often post on this topic to TheIntegratedLab.com, too, as it’s a topic of interest to both John Trigg and me. As such, I decided to write here about my own thoughts, as well. Also, I have spent such an inordinate amount of time discussing this very topic with the various conferences, lately, that I felt I should share these issues for others to see, as well.
There are many, many conferences throughout the year. As you probably realize, it’s not possible to attend them all. As such, there are specific conferences I attend and I’ll tell you why I’ve selected these.
