A funny thing happened to me on the way to the conference. As I mentioned in a previous post, I’m speaking at the Software Marketing Perspectives conference in Santa Clara this week. So, the funny thing, or perhaps the ironic thing, is that I lost my voice this week.
While it was rough earlier in the week, as I recovered from the flu, it got progressively worse, and today, the day before I’m scheduled to speak, my voice is completely gone. I can whisper, and articulate a few words with a really hoarse, raspy voice, but if I try for more than 30 seconds, I’m done.
So, this puts me in an interesting position. How can I give my talk without the ability to speak? I have a plan B, but I won’t tell you what it is right now.
Tomorrow, after the conference, I’ll let you know the plan and how it went down.
BTW, bragging rights go to the first person who can identify the obscure sci-fi reference in the title of this post.
