Sunday October 5th IMPORTANT SMB Nation 2008 updates

Hello everyone – this is a special edition of my communication to you with some late breaking updates.


(btw – Trend Micro keynote starts in about 45MINS at 8:00AM)


·         What did go wrong…could go wrong. Thank you for your cooperation as we were impacted by a large storm late yesterday (for example – the power went out in parts of town including Bainbridge Island).

o   We moved the evening party to inside the Odyssey Maritime Museum and had a fantastic time!

o   We intermittingly lost the WifFi connection to the Internet. This was weather related.

o   We had fun anyway – everyone seem to adjust very nicely! Thanks for Intel and Trend Micro for sponsoring third party

·         Autotask deserves a big thank you from everyone for holding an after-hours party that followed the SMB Nation party. You can show you “thanks” by attending Bob Godgart, CEO at Autotask, speaks at 9:00AM today “Automate and Optimize Your IT Services Business”

·         CHANGE: 11:00AM  EMC/Iomega Small Business Solutions (Matt Johnson) – this is a reschedule from Saturday – please attend this 30-minute SILVER SESSION!
