At a conference last week I met two people I should have already known and ran into two people I haven’t seen in over a decade.
I spent the last three days at a conference.
Conferences are weird.
Early in your career, they’re mostly places where you hover for too long over the coffee station. You try to locate the only person you know so you don’t have to stand alone or try to make awkward conversation with the one other person no one else wants to talk to.
It doesn’t take you long to figure out why no one wants to talk to this guy: he has nothing to say about anything.
Neither do you.
