dConstruct was rather an emotional rollercoaster this year. Outstanding talks by all the speakers.
I used to believe that conferences weren’t really about the speakers, but more the networking. That changed today, and with this knowledge I plan to change how I consume future dConstructs and other conferences of a similar ilk (are there any?).
I need to spend the breaks between talks reflecting on the subject matter instead of randomly mingling with people. Whether it’d be more effective to do so alone or with others who wish to take a similar approach (anyone?) is down to experimentation.
