Despite a somewhat negative reception online — see here — to my opening remarks and Brand New summary from last year’s Brand New Conference I am here again. With a renewed sense of respect to those that I talk about on stage and how I conduct myself. Sort of. I do have to apologize for the camera operator who must have been doing important things other than looking at the stage and pointing the camera at the right spot. (There is a key moment not captured, but c’est la vie). Opening remarks posted below. Videos and a summary of the conference coming in the next couple of days.
