Worse than having to pack

by Suw on June 19, 2005

Is having to unpack, because somewhere are the earphones to your iPod. Somewhere, probably at the bottom of your very neat, very tidy and soon to be not very immaculately packed suitcase.
Today I move house again, to the Palace Hotel in downtown San Francisco, ready for the Supernova conference. I will hereby admit that I am nervous about tomorrow. Being on a panel is a piece of cake – you just sit there and answer questions. And if you don't know the answer you either say you don't know, make it up, or answer a similar but not entirely the same question that no one actually asked but to which you actually do know the answer. Moderating is a different kettle of fish because a bad moderator can totally fux0r a panel and so you have to know your stuff and know how to moderate.
When I did the open space session before Northern Voice, it taught me that winging it is all well and good, but it would be better if I actually knew what I am doing. Today I'm going to try to think about what the hell I am going to be doing. If I'm lucky, I may even figure it out before the fact, too.

Immaculate suitcases are overrated.
You're going to do great. Don't panic. 🙂
