It's You and the Gatekeeper and the Battle of Wit.
Pam and I are here in Washington, D.C. attending Sourcecon.
We've been here since Friday.
Sourcecon starts today.
We actually met (and talked with) Karl Rove in Georgetown on Sunday morning.
He was walking on the street when Pam hailed him down and he stopped to chat.
They had a fast, heart-to-heart exchange.
We had just eaten breakfast here.
Pam was walking on air ALL DAY and she still hasn't stopped babbling about the encounter to anyone who will listen.
He looks NOTHING like you'd think he looks.
He's tall, broad shouldered and handsome in person.
We''ve spent not an inconsiderable amount of money shopping.
Georgetown's shopping is to die for.
We've eaten great food.
The Roosevelt Memorial is fascinating.
I cried in front of this Norman Rockwell painting at the American Art Museum (which is cattycorner from our hotel and across the street from the Spy Museum). Admission is FREE to the Smithsonian Museums (as are many things here in D.C.) - there are many museums in the Smithsonian network.
I talk tomorrow at 1 about the simple pleasures of phone sourcing and we leave tomorrow evening for home; Pam to Atlanta and me to Cincinnati.
It's been a wonderful trip and I want to thank David Manaster and all his ERE/Sourcecon team involved with this event for a wonderful time and opportunity. If you're not a member of the Electronic Recruiting Exchange you should be!
