I just sat through my first entire keynote by David Warlick.
Although, I respectfully disagree with some of his assumptions, he was very very good.
I hope one day David will accept my invitation to have a public conversation or a conference will feature us together on the same stage at the same time.

I’m happy you said it too. Not because I agree with everything Warlick says but because it make you more credible when you do disagree with him. Specifically, what did you like?
I thought is delivery style was pretty compelling but I”m sure you’ve got some other insights.
…I was there—it really happened–actually, all kidding aside, I had a lovely evening with Gary and Sylvia last night and the conversation was exhilarating; intriguing ideas coupled with good solid arguments, and the exploration of a range of opinions and points of view–(with relative tolerance) Bravo!
I’m glad you said it. Although I know you disagree with many of Warlick’s ideas, the fact you point out some of his good ones, gives you more credibility when you disagree.
I did think his delivery was compelling. I’d be interested in a more detailed critique from you on both what you found agreeable and disagreeable.
The sun does rise in the west.
And how much would that cost a promoter to get two heavy hitters on stage at the same time?
Still, I’d like to see it as well.
