Earlier today my buddy Andy Trice posted a question about conferences:

I RTed it to help spread the word, but I thought I'd blog it here as well and see if folks could share their thoughts in the comments. This will hopefully reach a greater audience and let people have a bit more room to comment. If you manage a conference, I don't mind you sharing, just be sure to mention that in the comment.

As it stands, I was avoiding a lot of conferences over the past six months because of my adoptions, so I'm hoping to attend/present at more next year. You would be helping me as well.
