It’s going down ya’ll, and you’re invited. “It” is the Killer Tribes Conference in Nashville on March 31, and I’ll be there.
Half of you know exactly what I’m talking about, but about one-third of you probably don’t. Killer Tribes is the love child of Bryan Allain and his brain. Bryan is a fellow Pennsylvanifornian with way more experience at blogging than me. He also interacts with the Amish on a semi-regular basis. I’ve been following for the past few weeks as he’s been setting up this conference, and it’s impressive. I can’t even coordinate meals during long workdays.
I’m really excited to meet a lot of real live humans. Great peeps like Jess Buttram and Leigh Kramer will be there. There’s a rumor that even Knox McCoy will be there bench pressing stuff, but I might be making that up. I’m driving down with my friend Kim and am bunking up with the one and only Tyler Tarver, state laws permitting. We’re totally going to build a fort out of patio furniture in our room and then eat Chik-Fil-A in it.
Tyler already took care to explain what this conference is all about. I can’t really say it any better unless I try.
“Yeah, it’s got some great speakers and talkers and peoples and stuff, but it’s also going to be like a High School Reunion for people you wish you went to high school with that you talk to on the Internet.
I’m really hoping I show up and everyone is a 43 year old computer salesman with a mustache and deep breathing problems, just like me.”
Thanks Tyler. That pretty much sums it up and means a lot to me because I have deep breathing problems too, but in case you want to know more here’s a video that also won’t help although I laughed a lot at around the fifty second mark.
Those two guys in that video with Bryan with a Y are Tripp and Tyler also with a Y. They’ll be at the conference too which means we’ll be able to put captions under photos when we’re done that say “A good time was had by all” like my grandma used to not say when I was a kid.
Who else will be there? Jeff Goins, Derek Webb, Carlos Whittaker, and other people. Why even friend of the show TamaraOutLoud will be speaking there and brandishing her squirrel foot collection or something. Check out the complete lineup and register here.
I’ll be speaking at the conference too, just not from the stage. But I’ll speak back to anyone who talks to me. Unless my mouth is full of Chik-Fil-A. Then you might have to wait a second.
I should also point out that Sharideth of A Woman’s Guide to Women: A Blog for Men will be there. This might be of particular interest to whoever spent a day randomly searching the internet wondering if eduClaytion is really a secret front for Sharideth’s masculine side. This peculiar thought showed up on Ricky Anderson’s site as well as mine.
If we both show up then you’ll know the truth Chad. But if you never see us in the same place then it’s probably a Clark Kent/Superman thing and you should be suspicious.
But you’ll have to come to Nashville on March 31 to find out. Actually, you should come on March 30 for the Friday evening meet & greet. I have a meeting in the city earlier that day, so I’ll have to slip on my party dress and speed over.
Seriously, I can’t wait to meet everyone. And yes, I know I’ve been absent a lot lately and keep pretending that I’ll announce all the new stuff, but this time I really mean it. Everything should be revealed within the next week or two.
So who is going to Killer Tribes?
Have you ever stayed in a hotel room with people you’ve only fake met before?
