I leave here at 11:50 for the airport.
It's looking to be a great seminar and a fun time!

Also - traffic has been a nightmare because of this strike! Just want y'all to be prepared. Hopefully you are arriving during business hours and won't have to deal with the increase in rush hour traffic around here.

Doesn't effect Greyhound .... SEPTA (South Eastern Pennsylvania trasporation assiciation) is the bus drivers, subway drivers and trolley drivers in this area.
Cabs & Regional Rails (the actual trains not subways) ... aren't affected.
Are you getting the greyhound into Valley forge?

If your bus is leaving out of center city though, you can likely catch the regional rails (which are not on strike) into 30th street station. I bet that isn't too far from the Greyhound terminal (I can look it up if you like), then you could catch a quick cab.
You could also take a train from 30th street station (and I actually think there's a stop out in Valley Forge) that'll take you right into NYC. We take that train to NYC when SES is ... can't remember how much the ticket was though.

Right now Chris is doing a 2ND presentation then we get to have a snack.
Matt is the anchor man (cause he's so good at it) and will do a session on site stats. A not-so-exciting topic that Matt makes sound like a thrilling experience.
Overall, a good day so far!

It was great that Bill and Kim could visit. Having Kim's significant other Eric join us for dinner was an added bonus. Always great to see our friends from Cre8asite forums. To make sure they felt welcomed, we tapped into Bill and Kim's expertise while they were in the vicinity - no sense wasting that valuable talent.
Thanks again to Bill for his sage insight on the trademark issues. That added to the discussion and it's always helpful to hear from someone inside the legal world.
Well, the fun isn't over yet. Day two is just beginning....

Thanks to all who attended, and all the speakers of course. We did record the sessions, and if things came out okay and the speakers agree, we will be selling a new CD of the sessions (or perhaps in streaming downloadable form this time).

I even left with a slightly new philosophy on SEO. It's one thing to read about the different SEO methodologies... it's a whole different thing to speak with someone and listen to them in person. It may be the voice inflection or facial expression, I'm not sure, but I did leave with a different way of looking at things.
I think the best way to describe my slight shift in philosophy is that I went in thinking that numbers like keyword ranks and PR should be a big part of SEO. I came out feeling that "SEO is more of an art form" (in Matt Bailey's words). I knew that all along, but to hear the speakers say it again and again with such passion, it was kind of an eye opener.
The last thing I want to say is that all the speakers were so nice. They took the time to speak with us individually, if we had questions.
Overall, it was just a great conference and well worth the time and money.

It's one thing to talk. It's completely another thing to walk the talk and do so on a very, very consistent basis. It's even better when the group is small enough that you can get some real feedback on your site and make a personal connection with the presenters.
Kudos go out to Jill for putting together what is --in my somewhat biased opinion-- the best group of speakers out there. For webmasters and e-Merchants her seminars simply kick butt!

We all had a great time, too. We're exhausted, but we had a great time.
I agree with the other speakers, this crowd was a lot of fun because they were an educated crowd for the most part. That brought conversations and Q&A sessions to a whole new level that was very interesting to us as presenters, too.
Great seminar, I think. One of our best!

Thank you, Christine. The seminar was filled with great presentations, and it was nice to have you all meeting so close to where I live.
It was a pleasure to see you, and the High Rankings crew. I think that many of the people attending got a great deal of information, and insight about how to achieve the results that they want to with their sites.
