” So, yeah. I did something really weird at Webstock. Weird for me and, honestly, just plain weird for “a talk.”
I’m not sure if it succeeded. But, I did the best I could to make myself (along with some really heroic friends and fellow speakers) into a legitimate guinea pig for a concept that means the world to me:
You can be scared and still do it anyway. Regardless of whatever it is.
And, you can. No. Really. You. You can do this.
You can run toward the shitstorm, let it cover you with shit, but, still never let it stop you from running.
Because, like Crazy Bob says:
And, they can’t. And, they won’t. Okay?
Well, okay, then.
