Who doesn’t love a secret passageway? The thrill of gaining access to concealed corridors is found in so many childhood tales, from Narnia’s Wardrobe to Hogwart’s train station. Even children’s video games contain mysterious keys that unlock hidden levels. I remember playing Mario Bros against a knowledgeable opponent, who repeatedly snuck on to mystery levels and cleaned my clock, feasting on secret stashes of coins.
I want to share that access with others. In a few weeks, I’m headed to LavaCon 2.0: The Conference on Digital Media and Content Strategies. Conferences come and go. But I truly believe LavaCon 2010 will be a pivotal event in the history of the technical communications profession. If you’ve read my writing, you know I believe us to be at a crossroads. As a result, I believe that powerful decisions will be made at this conference by vendors, customers and thought-leaders. I believe these decisions will shape large portions of the future. I believe you will want to be there. So if you have travel budget left for Q3 2010, there is still time to get yourself to San Diego. I strongly encourage it.
If you simply can’t make it, I want to help unlock hidden levels for you. I want to write about what I learn and bring it to you, the same way Sarah has done so for me. To that end, please look over the program schedule and let me know, in the blog comments, which session(s) you would most like to see live blogged.
