Best journalism conference I've ever attended. Period, full stop. Absolutely blown away by the quality of the people, their work, and their welcoming camaraderie.
(And it wasn't even strictly a 'journalism' conference. Although a lot of j-conferences would benefit by studying this model.)
Thanks to all who organized, participated, came up to say hello, and made me laugh. Thank you all. I'll start sending out my electronic bread-and-butter letters tomorrow.
