  1. Very informative, was enlightning to listen to. This only goes to show that the event that I was in was a waste of time and what to look for when considering attending. I was at a “e-business event”. The speakers were pretty good, but all the attendees were pitching their crap to one another like crazy. And it wasn’t even “e-” related. Stuff like solar panels. Plus, the organiser didn’t book anything for a few hour break – he and his staff took off, locked the doors and people from all around the country were left on the street to kind of self organise. I guess that’s not how a good event looks like? But how do I know beforehand the attendees won’t be just a bunch of random people, pitched by e-mail and clueless why they’re even there?

    1. I think you should check up on the reputation of the organizer as best you can. You can even contact the organizer beforehand to learn what types of people will be in attendance.

      Something like a Foolish Event would obviously be made up of people building Internet-based businesses. And with my reputation, you’d know there wouldn’t be any IM pitchfest nonsense.

      1. Yeah, I was too fast to go into it. I guess a good reference would be hearing about it time and time again from various people that you value, not only the organizer or random attendees who are blinded by him.
        Best of luck if you go through with it, fingers crossed it’s gonna be in Western Europe 😀

  2. I’d love to go to a foolish event!! On the condition that the Guinness flows like Wine
    😉 (Yes – that was my own branded “dumb and dumber” reference.)

      1. Sweet – When you bargain for free wifi and other amenities-make sure sure they include *DRAFT* Guinness. Homie don’t do bottles.
