I remember going to the IDSA conference in San Francisco back in ’07. When I talked my company into paying for me to attend, I said I do not need a hotel as I would drive up every day (2 hours each way from Santa Cruz).
Hearing Bill each morning really set the day up to justify whatever people did to get there each day. We all looked like something the cat dragged in but after Bill spoke the room lit up.
He will be missed by all of us.
