I just returned from our second annual “Semantic Technology Conference.” I think the refrain that I heard over and over, that captured the mood of the week, was the caption from the Gary Larson cartoon of the kid who wants to be excused because “My Brain is Full.”
It was heartening to me to hear even CTOs of technology companies who had been in this space tell me, as one did, “Normally when we attend conferences like this there isn’t anything new for me to learn, but this one was different. There were more sessions I wanted to attend than I could get to.”
I was very pleased. I learned a lot. Near as I could tell most of the 600 attendees and 80+ presenters felt the same way. Much thanks to all the participation and interaction that really makes an event like this.
