I don’t normally eat Mexican food in Las Vegas, but when I do, I make sure it’s at Border Grill at Mandalay Bay.
Susan Feniger and Mary Sue Milliken can seriously cook (I know that they’re not the exec chefs since they own a few different places, but you know they have complete control over the menu). And yes, the first dish pictured is a big, heaping plate of pork. I love me some swine regardless of outdated Jewish dietary rules.
This past week I was in Phoenix for the Mobile Shopping Conference. Technically Litchfield Park, but that’s like me telling people that I work in Lafayette instead of Boulder.
It actually wasn’t nearly as empty as the picture shows. Everyone was just sitting behind the picture taker. For reals.
The panel was titled “Creating A Personalized and Seamless Experience Across Touchpoints to Lead Customers Down the Path to Purchase” or in laymen’s terms “How the hell do you create a similar experience to your desktop on a 3 inch smartphone screen”.
Fortunately, I was lucky enough to have two kickass people (Jennie Huynh from Social Bliss and Peter Taylor from Blue Hornet) on the panel that have some serious experience with mobile and responsive design, as I’m still a bit of a noob when it comes to optimizing for mobile.
I really ended up digging this conference. There were a ton of people there that were way smarter than me, which is exactly what I look for in a conference. Plus, it was a small show (about 250 people by my count), so there was way more access to other presenters and attendees.
