I could do my job without ever leaving my living room again. Really, I could.
Write some quality stories. Talk over the phone. Tweet some people.
That said, my favorite work days are the ones I hop on the commuter rail to Boston for an industry conference.
It gives me a chance to put a real face to the Twitter avatar, hear a real voice versus the webinar/conference-call one. I like it a lot.
When I went to San Francisco for a company meeting, I liked that time, too.
I feel rejuvenated when I have a chance to meet the best of the best of the tech world in person. In reality, though, do we have to do this anymore? Mingle? Network in person? We put that question to the test — and present the answers to you in a two-part series, starting today.
