And before I say anything else, let me tell you this is not a paid promo piece from the PR firm that promotes the Cranky PM.
Where would I like to be on Nov. 10? I’d like to be in San Francisco where the Cranky PM will appear live (from 2:30-3:00) and speak at the Business of Software conference. Last year, Steve Johnson was the big hit at the conference. This year, let’s help the Cranky PM!
As readers of our respective blogs may have noticed, We’ve had an ongoing, healthy online conversation(!) over the last couple of years. Here are a few from this blog:
- In Search Of: CrankyPM.com
- What’s the deal with Personas?
- What’s in a name? A PM by any other name…
- Saeed vs. Cranky PM: Fight!
And here are a couple from hers:
Now, I’m sure there will be people who go to the CrankyPM’s session simply for voyeuristic reasons. What does she look like? Is she a she at all? Do her legs look like those in the picture? Is she as funny in person as she is on her blog? etc. etc.
I think people should go there to support her. I’m pretty sure that being a popular anonymous blogger has it’s benefits. But being a frequent speaker at conferences is NOT one of them.
So here’s a tip of the hat to the Cranky PM, and whether she decides to reveal her identity or not, try to support her by attending her talk.
And for those of us who can’t be there, please live blog or tweet it if at all possible!
