This is brief, because it hurts to type. True physical pain.
The Cranky PM has H1N1 – 0r as one reader termed it, “porkulosis”. No doubt, it is some kind of cosmic retribution for her executing a near flawless product launch earlier this week, and then bragging about it on Twitter.
Unfortunately, this means that the Cranky Product Manager will be unable to speak at Business of Software 2009.
She is SO sorry and very, very disappointed. She had her wig and sunglasses all set to go, and had been working on her presentation for weeks. (Maybe she’ll record it as a webinar some day, so that the effort does not go to waste). She was really looking forward to attending the conference and learning at the feet of gurus like Geoffrey Moore (her hero) and Joel Spolsky.
Damn you, swine flu!
In the Cranky PM’s stead, @NeilDavidson, the fearless organizer of Business of Software 2009 will be doing a talk on the “weird pyschology of software pricing.” Very interesting topic, and it is sure to be a great presentation.
Anyway, the Cranky PM is super-duper sorry. She feels like she really let you down. She hopes to try again next year at Business of Software 2010 in Boston.
