    Not this year, although I'd love to go and give them a piece of my mind (what's left of it!). Got the invite, but it takes place one day after my daughter gets out of school and a week before we fly back there to see the family. I told them to hold it a few days later next year!

    I'm not going. It falls on the day of the year that I sort my socks.

    I was thinking about it, but then realized I could probably never fill out the application correctly enough for them to accept it...

    I doubt I'll be invited (hasn't happened yet) or be allowed to go after my recent rants at Stephen.
    Continued Success,

    I am on the fence since it is in Ny, I might use that night to fly to Chicago for abw. Its a tough choice.

    I'm flying out Friday morning. There's a 6am American flight that gets into Chicago around 7:15am.

    Thanks Michael

    Another factor is taking two days off in a row from my 9-5, I don't know if its worth it for me. So I will probably skip linkshare

    Hi all Ė

    Iíd urge you to think twice about not coming to this yearsí LinkShare Symposium. Weíve got some terrific keynote speakers lined up - Ted Leonsis, Vice Chairman of America Online, Patrick Byrne President of Overstock.com, David Morey bestselling author of The Underdog Advantage, Michael Schornstein from Yahoo! and Omar Wasow, the Technology Analyst from WNBC and NPR. Plus, weíve got 47 merchants so far for the DealMaker session. Itís an amazing place to meet with your partners, find new ones and hear from leaders in our industry. Plus, you know Iíll be there, and I know youíll all give me a piece of your mind about whatís been going on, and yes, Iím prepared to take it! If youíve been to the Symposium in the past, you know that itís unparalleled in our industry, and well worth the trip. Looking forward to seeing you there.

    Best regards,
    Stephen

    Sorry, with my LS commission checks being held for over four weeks now I'm a tad bit busy juggling my finances to even think about going.

    Besides, it's my 27th wedding anniversary. I have other plans.

    I got the invite (WHY???), but as soon as I saw their contact info was events-at-linkshare

    I remembered how much they cost me last time, located

    It's bad enough they don't pay me, but when they COST me money too... I'll have to pass

    Why should we discuss with a network during a symposium knowing they can't (or they don't want to) work on a one by one basis with their affiliates? By the way I hope Patrick Byrne will make a big announcement.
