As a follow on to my post yesterday… Pardon me for talking shit… You should take the time to read Tom’s thoughts on the 4A’s and their various wanky conferences. I was invited to speak at their 2010 conference in San Francisco, which came as a big surprise when you consider I had achieved some notoriety the year before for describing the 2009 conference as a “Giant Wank-Fest!” The theme of the speakers was “Transformation.” My idea was to have all the BDA’s buy themselves out of the slimy clutches of the BDHC’s. As most of the attendees appeared to be BDHC bean counters, that went down like a fucking lead balloon. You can see my efforts here… Don’t worry; it’s less than five minutes long.
Worth considering before attending a 4A's conference!
