If you follow my Twitter stream (…you should, it’s available in an RSS Feed, too!) you know that I was in NYC last weekend. It was fun but also a little bit of business. (I love my “job.” I have convergence.) I had a chance to meet with a few folks I only knew on a virtual basis until then. As a result of those meetings I have a few more stories that I’m working diligently on.
Sometimes bigger stories take time to percolate and I’m being quite careful with these, as they are blockbuster.
I promise some new posts later today and tomorrow.
In the meantime, take a look at some of my favorite guys.
Matt Kelly at Compliance Week
Broc Romanek at The Corporate Counsel.Net
Bruce Carton at Securities Docket
I hope to be spending a lot of time with them the first week of June when I’ll be back at the Mayflower covering the Compliance Week Annual Conference. It’s always fun and super-informative. We’ve planned a Tweet-Up too.

Recession-proof pricing: Conference pricing at last year’s rates, and negotiated discounts at hotels, airlines, trains, and car rentals (we’ve thought of everything!) 8.
