I am flying off to SIC in Boston tomorrow (Wednesday). I hope to put faces to email addresses and talk to as many people as possible. Please come and say hello if you spot me (mugshot here).
I am going to try to meet up with a couple of the Business of Software regulars on Thursday lunchtime (11:30am – 12:45) in the Adam’s lounge bar/restaurant in the conference hotel. If you are at SIC and aren’t otherwise engaged on the Thursday lunchtime, please come along. I will be wearing a lurid orange variant of this T-shirt, so I should be easy enough to spot.
Stay away from the Kool-Aid! And enjoy Boston in July (!)
And take some pictures too
Bon voyage! Let us see your comment on the conference when you come back.
The 19th annual Software Industry Conference will be held this year in Dallas, Texas at the Hyatt Regency DFW, July 15-17, 2010. The conference runs each year from Thursday through Saturday. It is designed for both beginners and experienced Micro ISVs and internet marketers. At SIC you can go to sessions on current software and internet marketing topics, take part in web site and marketing tutorials, participate in networking opportunities, attend Exhibit Night, and mingle with your peers at the Gala Networking Dinner. For more information on the SIC visit their web site at: http://sic.org
Each year the conference sessions cover a wide variety of topics of prime importance to Micro ISVs, software entrepreneurs, and internet marketers. Imagine having your web site dissected by experts during a live critique. Get immediate answers to why your Buy Now button doesn’t convert! Looking for practical money saving tips on how to manage your Google Ad Words campaign? Confused about code signing? We offer sessions that cover these topics and many, many more. Exhibit Night gives you the opportunity to actually meet and discuss your service needs with leading industry suppliers.

If you are new to internet marketing this is your chance to learn all you can. If you are already an expert- meet other experts who have problems similar to your own.
