Deep inside the virtual ideas lab at Packet Pushers, we’ve been debating the merits of organizing a two-day Packet Pushers conference. We love live events because there’s no better way to strengthen a community and share ideas.
And because at a live event there’s no fast-forward button–we can lock the conference doors so that you can’t leave until we’ve gone through every last slide in the deck.
But putting on a conference is a lot of work. You have to find the right venue, organize lots of details, get speakers, create content, etc. And it would be nice to have some idea of whether people will actually show up.
Should We Or Shouldn’t We?
Since we couldn’t make up our minds on our own, we engaged a snazzy market research firm. They had nice suits and great teeth and they used words like “metrics collation” “decision-support cloud” “demographic p-values” and “cost-benefit ratio inversion.” Wow!
But just as we were about to sign a whopping big check, we realized we might be better off asking our audience directly.
So here’s a really quick survey about us putting on a short conference, whether you’d come, and where we should have it if we do this.
If you have an opinion on these topics and a couple of spare minutes, we’d appreciate if you would fill it out.
Thanks in advance!
