Since Last we Spoke, Post-Conference Edition

How fantastic was this year’s IAFN conference? I’ve been going to it for I don’t know how many years, and I truly don’t recall a better one. Kudos to the IAFN staff, Board and planning committee for making it such a great one. I loved meeting so many of you, and I was blown away by how many folks are regular readers, so thanks for supporting our nerdy little site.

By the time you read this, I will be in Italy for a court martial. Sunday was spent crossing the country, kissing my wife goodbye at Dulles and then hopping a flight to Venice via London. I’ll be here all week, so it’s possible posts will be light this week, too. I promise to get back to regular posts next week. Honest. In the meantime, here’s some of what’s caught my attention since last we spoke:

Sasha is a worrier. I should get her this.

Violence against women online is astounding.

I have always shied away from Uber. Here’s more reason to do so.

Yes, pretty much.

How many ways can you say disgusting? All of those, then.

Ah, perspective.

This is what bravery looks like.

Equality and gun rights.

    Love the worry tracker!! I have several people in mind who would love that for a Christmas gift! Thanks for the comments, and it was also good to be in the same space, even if only for a moment!

    I am a Champion Worrier, too! I even have a post on my file cabinet so I can see it everyday: “Worrying doesn’t take away tomorrow’s troubles; it takes away today’s peace.” It only helps a little.
    I agree this has been a surprisingly objective conference and I believe it has a lot to do with you and Sasha. There were many wonderful and objective sessions that were validating and informative.
    It is about time that we begin to acknowledge the defense, in a positive way.
    Safe travels.
