Think Tank 2008 – Last Chance Ass Hats

by TheMadHat on September 16, 2008

Think Tank

Please forgive the remodeling, I decided it was time to take my theme from 2005 that was so hacked to pieces and upgrade to Thesis, an actual professionally done theme. Plus I needed to do some PHP trickery for Rae, and I needed it to work on something from this decade (sorry Rae, I’ll get to it soon).

Anyway, the point of this post is Think Tank 2008 from DK and Purposeinc is coming up very soon and there are only a couple spots left so get on it if you want to go. This is a conference that’s not really a conference gathering of great minds which I’m totally pumped about. Informal conversations and group think is where the great ideas come from, not from watching the 43rd damn powerpoint presentation in a room filled with a couple hundred people.

There will be some very powerful players sharing their knowledge in a closed setting and it’s information that won’t be leaked (NDA required). John Andrews will be attending and if you follow him at all you know he’s not fond of conferences so that’s says a lot right there. As far as I can tell, everyone attending is successful in different areas of online business; Neil Patel, Jeremy Schoemaker, Aaron Wall, Chris Winfield…well you get the point, there are too many to mention. A lot of people I look forward to meeting and seeing again (bring your drinking shoes Rhea). Oh, and this chick will be walking around somewhere (or maybe I just wanted to include some porn, you’ll just have to go and find out).


The diversity of people that will be there is what I’m excited about. I know what my weaknesses are and will be able to get conversations going with the right people to enhance my skill set, and I’ll be able to share with others what I’ve learned in my 8 years doing this stuff. (Tip #1: always include hot girls).

There will also be lots of activities going on…and I’m pretty sure there will be lots of beer there. That’s key. So, if you think you might want to hit a real un-conference conference where you’ll go home with a hangover and more importantly a brain filled with some solid info, get off you ass and go sign up.

Really wish I could had made it out there for this. Too strapped for time over the next couple months, however.

Looking forward to hanging out, drinking, and the awesome informal conversations that I’m sure will come up! :)

Ha, Ha, Ha,

I love you, and am so thrilled your are coming. Thanks so much for writing this.

I am getting so excited about the ThinkTank that I signed up too.
Then the money keeps getting taken out of my account, and put back in!
It’s still great when I get the paypal e-mail saying someone paid me though!

Much Love,

My ability to use the unique opportunity of your wide readership as a springboard to further market the ThinkTank with witty conversation about the benefits of the event FAIL

If anyone tries to set up a powerpoint presentation we’ll have tar and feathers on hand. Can’t wait to meet you and have you drink me under the table…errr impart your wisdom on me.

I’ll bring the penguins.

what’s with the random hot chick pic in the post?

Not that I have a problem with it . . . it’s just – uhh, are you doing some CTR experiment or something :)

TheMadHat September 18, 2008 at 9:39 am

Well it just seemed right to throw in a random hot chick. It’s my ploy to get more visitors…throw in hot chicks on every post.

Hey nothing wrong with hot chicks especially random ones :)
