The last two weeks have put the âwhirlâ in TechWhirl, and itâs been pretty
darn cool if I do say so. We have been privileged (a bit jet-lagged but
privileged nonetheless) to take very active part in LavaCon 2014, and
Information Development World. And we finish up this run inspired by some
truly amazing thought leaders, engaged with many fascinating, friendly and
helpful peers, and completely jazzed by the energy and excitement of the
very first winners of the Customer Experience Recognition Awards.

In between we found time to publish great articles and moderate a few meaty
discussions on the the email discussion list
<> and
community forum
<>. Youâll
see a lot of coverage of both conferences in the coming weeks, which should
inspire you to put both on your 2015 calendar. Theyâre already on ours!

Have a great weekend!
