For those of you that may know, and those of you that don’t, I was scheduled to go to PDC 2008.  The the inevitable happened.  We ended up having issues with a third party vendor the week before I was scheduled to go.  We also ended up having other issues and scheduling conflict that all came together to mean one thing, I MISSED PDC!  I was so excited, I had never been a part of an organization that was will for me to go to one of the top conferences.  But, the world’s aligned to keep me from my dream.  Then I saw the ad for the MDC conference coming in Dallas, TX.  So, I signed up and paid for my ticket.  I am going to MDC!  It may not be PDC, but it is the next best thing.  It will be a great time, and this time it is on my own dime so work really cannot say anything to keep me from going (ok they could, but they won’t).  You should check out MDC, at $99 it is one of the best values out there.  With the current economic situation that we are all a part of it is definitely a top notch event at a bottom dollar price.  Who doesn’t like lower costs.  If you go to the Dallas, TX MDC give me a shout!
