So it turns out that I like conferences better when I'm an exhibitor (vs as an academic), but they're also exhausting. I had to be ON from 8-6 for three days straight, plus Monday morning. I'm still not entirely recovered.
@Kitts I remember well the feeling of Must Be On from when Shadowrift was shown at PAX. It's intense!
