I mentioned this over on my personal site but wanted to mention here as well that tomorrow – Thursday – and Friday I will be attending the Forrester Consumer conference here in Chicago. Peter Kim was nice enough to invite me not only to attend but also to help blog the event over at the Forrester Blog. I’m looking forward to what should not only be a great conference but also just the chance to see some of other folks in attendance.

It’s so vitally important, I think, in these days of being followers or friends or connections that we occasionally shake hands with the people whose blogs we comment on. There are people who produce them and it’s nice to meet face to face to reinforce those relationships, share conversations that don’t allow for usage of the Backspace button and just generally hang out.

If you’re going to be at the conference find me (I’ll be the one with the laptop) and say hi.
