I'm heading out on a late night flight for Boston this evening to attend the WebmasterWorld conference in Boston. Malcom Gladwell is delivering the keynote on Tuesday morning. I hope to arrive in time for that.
The session grid has some interesting stuff on it. I'll try to avoid getting too sucked into my email backlog so that I can enjoy the conference.
On Wednesday morning, I'll be on a panel called Morning Coffee Session with The Super Bloggers Of Search with Robert Scoble and Matt Cutts. I'm not sure why the three of us (all probably still on Pacific Time) seem to be ending up doing the early morning session like this, but I'll do my best to remain somewhat coherent.
Leave a comment here if you're going to be at the conference. I'm always looking to meet folks who drop by my blog once in a while.
I'll be wearing my "I'm Not Matt Cutts" t-shirt. :-)
If I can't sleep on the plane ride out, I'll try to write a report of my flights to ferry the Citabria from Texas the California. We made it--most of the way.
Oh, I almost forgot. Drop by and see the YPN folks too.

I'll be in town Wednesday night for a completely different (search related) reason but would go way out of my way to visit with you if you have the time/inclination.
And Matt will be wearing the "I really can't fly planes even though my blog says differently" tee-shirt? ;)
You aren't Matt Cutts?!
I'm out here enjoying the great history in Concord, MA - see you tomorrow!
Tell Brett. I suspect he ultimately names the sessions--at least the big ones.
Hey - I just arrived in Boston. I'm here through Thursday morning.
Hey Jeremey! It was a pleasure to meet you... I thoroughly enjoyed the Super Bloggers of Search session. It felt as though the three of you were just shootin the shtuff over a backyard bonfire. A geek bonfire, nonetheless... but a COOL geek one, at that. One that I would always make the time to go to :)
I enjoyed your session at PubCon, thanks for coming out!
I have a question that has nothing to do with search but everything to do with aviation.
What doe the "O" in SFO stand for? It has been bothering me for awhile now and I can't seem to find an answer.
I understand that SFO is an IATA location identifier code. The questions remains, what does the "O" stand for?
Interesting to note that "SFI" is not taken, which, to me seems the obvious choice.
Please be aware of the fact that I know very little about aviation and the Bay Area, nonetheless, this has been killing me and I thought you may me able to help.
You guys catch all the fun! Sure missed not hooking up with the gang Wed night at PubCon - My flight through Atlanta was cancelled and I was "conveniently" rebooked on the last flight out of Tulsa which was through Orlando (bleh!). Didn't arrive BOS until midnight. Made my appt and turned right back around on a flight pointed home at 1:12 p.
Brent, I'm almost 100% that the O in SFO is for "Oakland". I recall granpa (one of the early bush pilots for Phillips 66) saying a lot of airports were snapped up during the second world war and Oakland's was one of those. Just confirmed that on Wikipedia. So, yeah, I bet the O is for Oakland.
Good trivia for the next MoMo. Cept everyone reads Jeremy's posts! :)
I think it's the 'O' at the end of San Francisco.
