Which explains my lateness in downloading the conference app for the National Genealogical Society Conference this coming week. Finally I've had a chance to wrap my head around all the awesomeness that awaits. And finally I downloaded the app to my phone.
Holy 1890 census is this thing incredible.
I have never been to a conference of this scale before. I read an article on the National Genealogical Society Conference blog that gives the top 10 reasons to use the app, and I discovered the app has everything on it I need for the entire time I'm there. For instance, a map of the conference center to see exactly where I'm going. A list of attendees and speakers I can familiarize myself with before it all begins. A list of exhibitors. Conference news. It also has a calendar so I can see exactly all the lectures I can go to. And I'm going to every single one I can humanly get into. Even if they happen at the same time. And there's a lunch I want to attend called The Pitfalls of Visiting Jamestown in Jammies, but I replied too late, and now it's full. Maybe they'll let me in if I promise not to eat anything....
Only two more days!
