WebmasterWorld PubCon @ Vegas

So it's been a busy couple of weeks since the last post. This week I spent 2.5 days in Vegas attending the WebmasterWorld PubCon. This is primarily a gathering of webmasters and SEO (search engine optimization) practitioners that get together a couple of times a year to swap tips and war stories. Matt and I were there to find out anything we should've known that we didn't.

The conference sessions themselves are fairly uninteresting. The fun is in chatting with everyone over drinks till 2am. That's when the juicy information gets spilled. There's a fly in the ointment though. Ever since Jayita's been taking CalTrain up into San Francisco every morning, I've gotten into this really nice schedule of waking up at 6:30am. On the dot. No matter what time I've gone to sleep. You get the picture. By the time I was back (Friday afternoon), I was a sleep-deprived zombie.

By the way, I have to plug the hotel that we were at; the Renaissance. What I loved about this place was that it felt like we weren't in Vegas anymore. It didn't have those damned slot machines beeping and booping all over the place, and to cap it off, it has an awesome steak house, and was across the street from both the convention center and the monorail (if you're really desperate to hit the strip). If I'm ever unfortunate enough to go to Vegas again, I'm staying there.
