That's what I found myself reading minutes after the hotel shuttle dropped me into the lobby of the Gaylord Opryland in Nashville, ending a journey of five thousand miles and fifteen hours.
#agile2013 I think I have already run into 150 old friends & the conference hasn't begun. Dunbar number explosion!

The journey had just ended; the conference was about to begin. And that is how the conference began for me: minutes after getting checked in, I bumped into the first of many, many friends and we hugged. (As it happened, that first friend was Ellen Gottesdiener, who's speaking tomorrow on creating value.) It was less than an hour before I'd lost count of how many more friends I'd bumped into - and not just because I was too tired to count by then.
Those two tweets capture a lot of what the conference is about, to me.
