    Thank you and more
    I don't even know where to begin....

    I'll start with Andy and Emilio. Finally after all this time working togther I got to meet you both and the ARC Team. Wish I got a full pic of that talented crew! Wish I had more time to pull up a chair talk, but I saw how busy you both were and let you take care of business. Also a big THANK YOU for helping me get there, and the invite to all the cool stuff, parties, and people you introduced me to.

    UncleScooter, you are the official first person I met from ABW (On Sat night 7/7/07). I picked you out in a crowd at hotel the bar walked up to you and said, Hello. I admit I was nervous not "knowing" anyone there, but the man who gives scooter squeezes seemed like a good start. I wasn't disapointed. ...and when you started mentioning the others who were sitting there at the table I was quite excited to see & meet them all. Your girlfriend also gave very kind compliment and made me consider changing my ABW name here to "Fabio" ...too funny.

    Rainmaker, thanks for the tour of the South Beach Strip, even though not much was happening, the return to the Cameo (BUY.at party) made it all worth it. After that I had to do it again with the HelpingMoms Daughter Mother Team!

    Donuts, Snib, Michael Nunez, a real pleasure to sit in that circle and just speculate that afternoon in the hotel. Really learned alot from you, and wished I spend more time talking with Michael.

    (The Donuts crash course ...I belive I achieved a safe landing - lobby talks & upstairs were priceless, much respect. Thanks for the drinks and food.)

    SouthBeachAnnie, you should share you answer to Joel's joke/question "How many affiliates does it take to screw in a light bulb?" BESt ANSWER Joel Comm has heard yet from what I reacall. Very happy to have met you and your other half. Also Thank you for the great local info on food and fun!

    e-Gazer: Thank you for your kind words, ideas, and all around good nature, even if you did forget my name... (cough, cough) you got it now though

    Nate Burke- (OutdoorDecor.com) Glad you came and got your program going on the right track. Was good to hear your tales from a Merchant POV with little to no experince with networks/forums. I am sure you are happy you got on board with ARC.

    7 Days A week: I'll be in touch at somepoint if you would like to follow up on a few of the things you shared with me. And you have to send me a pic or post here when you get that VW fixed up.

    efe: Dude Your other site rocks!!! Just Amazing talent.

    To the SAS crew: Great to place faces with names, talk and share some drinks, Brian on the piano live was truly a great thing to see. Looking forward to hearing from some of the SAS people!

    Alex: When I'm ready to go mac I'm gonna have to get in touch with you & thanks for keeping a sense of humor Was really cool to finally meet you.

    AllegroRainbow: Cool talks and fun times man, I'll be touch over those code snippits and secondlife.

    Buy.at crew, good people there @ Malcom & Kevin they were ladies afterall! lol

    Kristin: Great to get to know you in person....FressssH...(do you/ did you remeber the secret password the next morning?) cheers

    Loxly: You are a twitter-er like no other. Hope you are feeling better and looking forwad to all the pics and video.

    ABW & SAS the Party rocked, Thank you. Missed the pie part but the pics are great!

    Asif & Michele - GoldenCAN: Pleasure talking with you, thanks for the tips and looking forward to what's new in the CAN. I'll be in touch.

    Geno,MoblieBadBoy, Angel, AM@4checks, was nice to meet you even if it was brief.

    I had such a blast, meeting people, faces with names, sessions, parties, people, networking, and slept a total 16 hours in 4 nights. And I still wish I didn't need to sleep that much.

    Missy and Shawn: Thank you for this event. It has changed my life.

    Hi Brian! It was so good to meet you at Summit and put a face to the name!

    I'll let you in on a little secret: A few of us were throwing an idea around about starting an affiliate matchmaking site (I think it was Scoot's Judi who got the brain flash and is gonna want to get involved in this biz now heh heh heh) and you were part of the inspiration.

    Ladies, Brian is a serious hottie! And I hear he makes killer banners, too. :-)

    Cursal,

    It was so nice talking with you!

    You should consider a site on tips and suggestions with regards to SecondLife - you really know your stuff! (If you decide to go through with it, let me know. We can do checks with photos, etc. so let's talk about checks printed with your character, etc. and see where we can take it.)

    Take care,

    I was chatting ravenously with Cursal and some other friends and this girl behind us (not attending aff summit) d near the elevators and some projectiles flew right by my head (which is a big ol' target).

    The hotel had it bleached and were spin buffing out the floor within like 2 minutes - what a great venue... or crazy town... or both!

    Kim's ideas are good ones Cursal, there's a ton you can do with your skills!

    Next Aff Summ is a lot closer to home for you, you coming out again?

    um, er, I don't know what to say...Thank you (i really got to learn to take a compliment better :blush )

    Take care,
    Fantasic idea about the checks! After talking with so many about secondlife I realized I should do something with that set of skills and knowledge. I have something cooking with a vendor and adding a tips site and/or section to my rebranding of my site (new name: URL, because what I do is so much more than banners) will be a must.

    Dude, that totally slip my mind. I was so focused on the discussion I forgot how disgusting that was. But not being in the line of fire and with a buzz on I did have a chuckle at your expense.

    Am I coming out again? You bet your sweet donut hole

    I had a lot of fun chatting with you and T!

    I had been drinking whiskey all day long, I think I was fairly coherent... but maybe I'm just wanting to remember it that way. Heheheee.

    Look forward to chatting with you both again and hope you're coming to Vegas!

    Seriously!?! Three parties, two cab rides, a deli, and the girl and this is the only mention we get? LOL! The guy who got roundhouse kicked apparently remembered me more.

    Just kidding. I know we'll keep in touch, and I look forward to seeing you in Vegas. You'll have to send me a seething criticism of the graphics on my sites when you get a chance.

    I was baiting you to come to my thread T. Guess I wanted you to track me down this time instead of the other way around
    It was truly a great experience hanging out with the "SunShine Girls" ( btw, where is Sunshiner in my thread, talking to Donuts...get her off the pinball and tell her to come say hey...lol)

    You and your Mom were fantasic to be around,
    might as well give full disclosure- 3 parties, 2 cab rides, walk down to the beach, 2 breakfasts, the ZeFrank keynote, missing the bus and getting the karmaic flow to breakfast at Jerry's Deli with a great bunch of peeps, the invite to your hotel room to use your computer and the random chats around the exhibts, booths, and hotel bar.
    I thank you for your openiness and candor about what you do and how you run it. Learned lots from you both.Yep, good people to be around, even got me on the dance floor and I don't really do that!

    I have pics for you two as well.
    I'll be in touch by PM, phone, & email.

    Hope to see you again in Vegas.
    Great! I loved to ramble on about it. It really is a fantastic "game" Maybe I will see you "in-world" some time.

    on that note: 2nd life was on the news here in Eugene last night. A local Ski shop owner set up his shop inside 2nd life and linked it out to his website and is making both virtual and web sales. His Ski shop is 2 blocks from my house. I will have to pop over and say hello maybe get a drink with him and see where that leads.

    Hey Cursal, remember, we are the gals without the phone numbers on our cards.

    Not playing pinball....just trying to catch up. You know me, always on the go. Will be tonight though, new pinball game on the site so thought I'd better address my lack of participation in your thread now.

    Was great meeting and hanging out with you. You have totally inspired me to work really hard at this. You introduced me to some nice people and explained alot about the business to me. Your enthusiasm is quite contagious. I know you have some big plans, good luck with them. Remember, finish one step before you take the next.

    Look forward to hearing from you.

    I feel confident I will get that number

    Already sent you an email....

    I am happy I could share what I know, get you jazzed about the biz (seems you quite the 'crappy other job').
    I am going to stay focused, I hope you will check me on those in 3 months and 6 months markers. It's always good to stay in touch with those that help keep each other's momentum and excitement going.

    Cursal - I am so glad to know you have been so inspired by the many people you met and experiences gained while at the Summit. I always feel that way but I remember my first time and it's just so amazing to meet so many people you have so much in common with at once, who are all so creative, down to earth, generous and all around fun to be around.

    I enjoyed meeting and hanging out w/ you as well - you exude awesomness and I know you'll continue to grow and do well within this and related industries because of it.

    Looking forward to seeing you and the rest of the gang again in 6 months! Feel free to stay in touch.

    All the best!!

    Cursal,

    We all feel the same way

    There's an energy at summit that comes from everyone in the biz being in the same place at the same time - you can't escape it

    Then as you talk to people, you take something away from each one, and you end up with a mental list of a million things you have to do as soon as you get back home

    The best part is knowing that we're all different, we all have extremely different business models... yet for 3 days we all come together in a common cause

    Sorta' makes you giddy

    That was the feeling alright. It was like...I FOUND MY PEOPLE.
    It was the first time in my life I had any real face to face converstion about this type of material and have it be a two way converstion.

    I will stay in touch between the Summits, you can count on it

    @Billy Kay - I don't know how I missed you. You were on my "list" of ABWers to meet. Next time for sure Yep, I'm still feeling giddy. Just a brief look over my pics and affiliate swag and I get all pumped up again.
