Petition To Get Chris Sells To Host Another SellsCon Before The End Of 2008

by M. David Peterson

As per the description in the newly created Facebook group of the same titled-name,

It's been 3 1/4 years too many since Chris Sells hosted the last SellsCon @ the beautiful Skamania Lodge in Stevenson, WA. It's about time we SellsGeeks band together and demand our rights to have our brains properly nourished with the type of brain nourishment that only a SellsCon can provide.


If you haven't experienced a SellsCon before, then here's your chance to get in on the ground floor. If you have, then you don't need any encouragement from me: You know exactly what I mean when I state that there's no tech conference like a SellsCon. None of this fluffy-puffy corporate sponsored mumjo-jumbo. Just the best and the brightest converging together into the same place for a couple days to make sense of all the crap that get's blasted in your face at all the other conferences (Okay, except for OSCON (and, of course, any other O'Reilly hosted/sponsored conference ;-)).

Now, before I get myself in any (more!) trouble: This isn't something that is absolutely, without a doubt going to happen. This is just an attempt to get enough people to come together to ensure Chris is made fully aware just how badly we want to attend/participate in another SellsCon, and what better way to do that than to stick our names on an easy-to-locate list that Chris can then look at and go: "Okay, I'm convinced."

That said: I invited Chris to join the group. And he did. So if nothing else, at least he's interested in the idea. :D

Are you in?

Here I've been trying to avoid Facebook and you go and give the most compelling reason yet to go there. Having attended a SellsCon (the one in Beaverton in '02 or '03), I can say it had the highest signal to noise of any event I've attended. Highest value per $/time too. Now what's that stupid Facebook password.....

Hey, I've enjoyed the SellsCons but not enough to join facebook just to vote.


Why not use the web?

Oh, absolutely!

I'll see if I can't pull something together that allows folks to participate without creating and/or logging into their Facebook account. Maybe use OpenID as a way to authenticate one's vote?

@Patrick,


As per my above comment to Dan, I'll see what I can pull together to avoid the need to go through Facebook to make your voice known to Chris.
