SiWC 2012 in Review

Hello, all!

We're finally emerging from the post-conference fog here at SiWC Central. Hard to believe SiWC is behind us for another year. We had a great time this year, and from all we've read, it appears you did, too.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. More than anything else, it is the PEOPLE who make SiWC special. The part of our conference of which we're consistently the most proud is the atmosphere. And you, my friends - attendees, presenters, staff, volunteers, trade show participants, book fair participants and everyone else - are what make that happen. Thank you for coming ready to learn, to share what you know, to connect and converse and share a drink in the bar or a meal in the ballroom. Thank you for being attentive and open to new ideas, for taking questions with good grace. Thank you for resisting the urge to foist your MS on an unsuspecting agent in a bathroom stall. Thank you for sharing your work, your passion, and your time with us. And thank you, too, for your words. We've been touched, made to laugh, choked up, and generally chuffed to read your thoughts about SiWC this year. I hope you've all had a chance to read some of the blog posts out there about this year's conference. If not, here are some of the links we're aware of, picked at random:

The conference was amazing. As it always is!
Thanks for the links. I've read some, but not all and this way I can extend the conference high a little longer.

And thanks for including the wordbitches in your linky love. :)
