Let me, as a side note, just say that I love that; just exchanging stories with people. I **always** learn new stuff and quite often stories from my own experience pop back into my memory.
This is the best part of conferences - meeting, interacting with others. That's what I miss the most, being a little sidestepped here in Indonesia. Praise the Lord for Skype and Twitter... ah well for the Internet too (although I'm not entirely sure He had any hands-on action on either of those inventions).
I just thought I summarise some of the things that I took away with me from our conversation.
