I am extremely bummed not to have been there, but at least now, thanks to the kindness of O’Reilly and the saucy Sarah Wendell of Smart Bitches, Trashy Books, I’ll get to see Liza give another talk at the Tools of Change for Publishing conference, later this month. Free! Woot!
One remaining bum-out: I’d really like to go to the TOC workshops on that Monday, too (for example, Joshua Tallent’s), but the free pass doesn’t include them, so it’d be a few hundred dollars out of my holey pocket. A pittance compared with the $1,595 of the full conference+workshops fee, but still a large chunk of change for an incomeless person who’s hip-deep in student loans. Worth it? Not worth it? I just don’t know.
