As most of you know, I've abandoned Western Canada for the center of the universe (aka Toronto). Don't worry western peeps - it's a temporary move and I'll be back out there sometime in the future. You can all release that breath you've been holding.
While there are definitely perks to setting up residence out here (read: all the Brett Lawrie and JP Arencibia games...er...Blue Jays games you can handle), it means that I miss out on some of the fun stuff that my counterparts back in Calgary and Edmonton get to go to. ATLE is one of them.
Luckily, we live in an ever connected world where the minute someone speaks with an air of wisdom their quote immediately becomes immortalized in the Twitterverse. As such, I was able to peek in and out of the conference whenever my little guy would let me get 2 minutes at the computer or my phone. Since ATLE is always full of amazing tidbits and new catch phrases, I thought I'd highlight the snippets that I found impressive.
**Side bar** Please do not be offended if your brilliance either as a presenter or tweeter did not make it into my list below. I had to zip on and off of Twitter numerous times and I couldn't possibly keep up with everything that was going on there. :)
Food for Thought
So many amazing things I learned just by checking in on Twitter here and there. I can only imagine how valuable the experience in person was!
