No stranger to hot topics, the BSMPG is starting to turn into one of the best conferences in the country, and with the right sponsors next year I think it can grow even more. Selfishly I love the BSMPG as I don’t need to fly anywhere, and it allows me to pick from various tracks while getting excellent keynote presentations. This year was very special because some of the best people in the world spoke on topics that were real, and some of attendees were very interesting as the conference is now being attended by data architects, forensic injury analysts, and the occasional blackwater consultant. When you see an influx of designer jeans and 800 dollar italian shoes, you are likely attending the PB summit with John Berardi (best dressed man in fitness) or at an international conference with guys from Europe. Most people think I look at feet for gait, my interest is looking for who is in crowd. Not to get into a spy vs spy situation, but having a few speakers on the podium besides the usual suspect flushed a few people out of hiding. It was like a james bond movie. International sport is billions of dollars, so naturally we will see vested interests. I will post a day by day review later this week via droplr. Please email me as I am closing down social media this Friday. Facebook has a lousy export feature and I am manually removing networks (randomly) one by one.
