I've neglected myself three times over the past few years by not attending Gnomedex - which was both my mistake and my loss. This year I am going, and it's looking to me like this may be one of the best conferences I've ever attended from the total-geek-fest standpoint. I'm flying to Reno tomorrow and making the quick drive over to Lake Tahoe, where the conference is being held at Harrah's.

Probably the thing that I am most looking forward to is meeting people that I have conversed with on the Internet (mostly through the blogosphere, as they say) face-to-face. There are a number of people for whom I have great professional respect that will be in attendance, and that alone will make this more than worth the while.

Chris Pirillo's Lockergnome is the power being this conference. I am sure it will be fun, interesting and memorable.

Below is some info ripped from the Gnomedex FAQ, and yes, I will blog from the conference when something stands out to me.

Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go do some laundry so I can pack clean clothes.

Q: Will there be Internet access?

A: Is the sun a mass of incandescent gas?

Q: Who's Gnomedex 4: Geeks Gone Wild! for?

A: Technology enthusiasts, professionals, and folks who just love hanging out with geeks. In past years, we've had fantastic presentations, vendors, and sponsors - and expect this year to be no different in that respect.

Q: Is this conference family-friendly?

A: It's recommended that anybody below the age of 18 go to Disneyland instead.

Q: Can I bring a friend?

A: Only if s/he likes to have fun, too.

Q: Why is yours better than other conventions?

A: Because it is.

Q: Do people really read FAQs?

A: No.

Q: How many people do you expect to be there this year?

A: Including you? A lot. Close to 1,000, according to our estimates.

Q: Where's Gnomedex 4: Geeks Gone Wild! being held?

A: Harrah's.

Q: Is this a place for me to make business contacts?

A: Yes, and to make them life-long friends as well.

Q: Can I blog this event?

A: If you don't, the gods will be angered and virgins will (most likely) be sacrificed.

Q: What is a blog?

A: Nobody really seems to know.
