Preparing for a conference

So, as some of you may know, I'm speaking at BrainShare again (I think my fifth year, which in some ways makes absolutely no sense, but if they keep letting me do it, I'll keep doing it.) I turned in the final drafts of my talks this week, and am trying to get ready.

One of the issues I have is that my now 2-year-old laptop's battery was reduced in capacity. So I bought a new one, but I bought the extra large laptop battery, so I have over 5 hours of battery life now. Better than the two I was getting.

Also, I bought pants. I need black or khaki pants to present (one of the precious BrainShare perks are the speaker shirts, a polo or button-down shirt.) and I have some but I bought more since they're kind of wearing out.

And I got a new suitcase for Christmas.

So, laptop battery, suitcase, pants. Salt Lake City, here we come!
