I am buried in my man-cave lately, focusing on writing a book about converting a Flex app to other technologies. I wanted to pop my head out for a second to let you all know that I'll be speaking at the 360|Stack conference coming up in the beginning of August.

360|Stack is the old 360|Flex conference, but it has a slightly different name.

I'll be giving an inspirational presentation entitled "How to Fail Fantastically." I'll be talking about my various business ventures, such sa The Flex Show and Flextras and DotComIt and probably some you had never heard of.

Even if that doesn't excite you there is plenty of real technical content covering everything from Google Glass to more JavaScript frameworks than you can shake a stick at.

I have an extra ticket that I'm undecided what to do with. I'm thinking maybe some type of contest?
