SoCon09 - welcome back to Atlanta

Last night I got the opportunity to come back to my home town and do the keynote this morning at SoCon09 - a very excited event that we started 3 years ago and is still growing!

Here’s my slides.

It’s great to see so many new faces this year. A lot of exciting stuff is happening in Atlanta.
Shotput Ventures is probably one of the most exciting things I’ve heard since I left. It’s a great group of guys that I admire very much. I often have said it will be the entrepreneurs in Atlanta who really make it happen. Glad to see these leaders working on something we’ve been talking about for a few years now. That’s my theory: Your idea sucks. Glad to see these guys doing something about it!
