Check out this recent post from my new friend Dustin Nickerson from Washington state. For several weeks, he and I talked about him being the officially back-up to the back-up in case any of my speakers got sick. I didn’t realized how seriously he was taking this semi-important (not really) assignment. Click here to see his evil plan.

Pray for good health for all the speakers, staff and attendees at Illuminate Birmingham!

What Dustin doesn’t know is that 3 of my 4 speakers got food poising last year. Of all the great places to take them to eat here in Austin… I took them to the place where the view is the best… and the food is gross. 🙂

Dustin… I have a feeling that in the future, I’ll have you speak at Illuminate. I’d love to see your outline for the breakout on aliens!
