"I spoke at the NMX, and all I got was this lousy t-shirt"

Okay, that's not totally true.

I got several t-shirts.  And one of them amuses me.

Abigail Hilton often invites Big and me to go o'er to the East Coast and attend conventions, or be on panels.  But Big and I are poor, midwestern podcasters, and such dreams are beyond us.

So, it was good news when she got asked to head up a panel for the New Media Expo in nearby Las Vegas, Nevada, and offered us a spot on it.  By our math, it wasn't going to cost us much at all to go (but later I discovered that not only did Big have to take time off from work, but his wife did too, since he wouldn't be home to watch the brats).

I'm not sure whether to go into detail in my blog about it, or whether to just write up a quick summary.  The summary would be easier to write (and to read, and really, who cares about my three days "in the middle of the Nevada desert?"), but the detailed account might be better in the long run, in case I forget, or never get invited to speak on another panel.  Plus, the damn Expo was all about blogs and podcasts and going above and beyond, so maybe I will do the longer one.
