How can I forgive myself for not knowing he was there?
This is what happens when there are parallel events taking place in one city. At WCIT 2008, apart from the main event, there were a dozen other events taking place simultaneously that week.
They had told us that WCIT 2008 incorporated a congress to address global impact issues, a Link Program for business matching that includes a series of structured business-to-business (B2B), business-to-government (B2G) and business-to-industry (B2I) meetings, an ICT exhibition, a debate on current ICT issues and ancillary activities like tours, golf tournament, F1 experience and a spouse program.
But never once did anyone mention that Guy Kawasaki was going to be there! He was in KL for 40 hours at the same time I was and I didn’t even know it! Woe is me! I am really so upset. What I wouldn’t give to go back in time so that I could meet Guy face-to-face, have him autograph some of his books for me that I have read and re-read many times, tell him what a regular follower I am of his blog, and just listen to him talk about the Mac and his days at Apple Computer Inc.
Here is a photo of Guy on board Cathay Pacific (it is borrowed from his blog post about his visit to KL) – wow I have never seen an airline seat like this one before. For more amazing pictures of KL and GK, do read the original post.
Nancy, I see you in one of the photos. Why didn’t you tell me Guy Kawasaki was at WCIT 2008? You and I met and you didn’t even mention it! Apparently he was there to partcipate in NetBash – another event that was on alongside the Main Event. How long shall I continue to whine? At least for the rest of the week, I promise you. Sob sob 😦
