I’m on a plane returning from Orlando  / STAR east. As expected, it was a fun week, but by Friday I’d had enough of the 95 degree weather – it’s nice to be heading back to 65 degree Seattle.

I thought my presentation on metrics went well  - if you were there and have additional comments, feel free to post them here. In the description for the talk, I said that it would be a “highly interactive” presentation. I knew I succeeded when over dinner James Whittaker told me that he “uncovered my scam” – he said I got the audience to give half of the talk for me (which sounds about right). When you give a presentation at 3:00 in the afternoon on the second day of the conference, you have to do something to keep people awake. I suppose it also cuts down on my prep time.

I’ll post a link to my latest slides later this week – although without the audience giving half the talk, I’m not sure how valuable they will be.
