AEA: Atlanta Bound

That’s right, folks, it’s on.

An Event Apart.  Atlanta.  April.  Alliterative!

We’ve also given a tiny little peek behind the schedule curtain: Seattle, Chicago, and Los Angeles (not necessarily in that order) will be future AEA stops in 2006.  There may be one or two more in addition to that, but we can’t give away all our secrets, now, can we?  Like the actual dates we’ll be in those cities.  Nope, couldn’t possibly give out those.

Okay, the dates aren’t really secrets.  We just don’t know yet.  Scheduling a road show isn’t an exact science.  There’s a lovely and near-continual juggling act with other travel commitments, venue desirability, and venue availability.  The last thing we’d want is to say we’ll be in City A on Date X, and then have to change it later on.  That’s not simply unprofessional—it’s just plain rude.

Of course, if you’d been subscribed to the AEA RSS feed, you’d already know all this.  In fact, you probably are, and do.  Sorry for the redundancy.  Forget I said anything.

Atlanta!  Be there.  Or, you know, be at one of the future shows.  Either way, we look forward to seeing you!

(P.S.  We know that these are all U.S. cities, and there are many of you in Europe who’d like to have the show come there.  We don’t have any non-U.S. plans yet.  Yet.  One day, maybe, but for now we’re going to stick to the country we know.  It makes calculating taxes a lot simpler, plus there aren’t any awkward customs forms to fill out.)

    I was wondering why they were all US venues and I was looking forward to the day you’d venture overseas, perhaps to Australia. Oh well, maybe I’ll get to catch you at WE06 or something this year. Any chance that AEA will be podcast? Or even live video streaming?

    Ditto what Lachlan said. It’d be great to see you back here in Australia. I live in Adelaide, but I’d travel to Sydney to catch An Event Apart.

    WE05 was great (even though it flew by) – thanks again!

    I’d love to see you in Sweden and host an event like this in the future. If you do so, you can count on me! ;)

    I hate to be pedantic, but alliteration is the repetition of consonant sounds; the repetition of vowel sounds is assonance. The good news is that this works just as well in the context :-D.

    The chances of my attending any of these events, sadly, are zero, as I’ve already filled up my conferences-abroad quota for the year. All the best to anyone who’s attending, however: know that I envy you (in a good way).

    As soon as I saw the Atlanta announcement last week, I sent an email to my manager requesting to attend. Hope to see you there…

    How come no one ever comes to New Hampshire? Portsmouth during the summer would be a great place for a conference…. but I’d even settle for Boston. Come on, you know you want to.
