We were supposed to be going, and going in style. No hangin at the Motel 6 seven miles out of town, or attending sessions as another wannabe looking for funding. It looked so good to be there with a room downtown, plenty of beer money, and a live product with good sponsors and a rapidly growing audience!
I'd still trying to convince myself that the gain will be worth the risk of drawing the cash reserves to such a low level. We'd certainly be better off for the incredible learning and contacts that go on there.
Meanwhile, a little treat from the music side of the event.
