This week Nick is attending his fourth Spiceworld conference, which is basically a big nerdfest for some software and community called Spiceworks. I don't really pay that much attention when he talks about it, but I do smile and nod my head. This year I decided I wanted to tag along to see what it was all about and meet some of his fellow Spiceheads that I've spoken to online, so here we are in Austin. Thankfully I don't have to attend the boring lecture stuff during the day time, but my guest pass allows me access to all the fun dinners and parties in the evenings. So I will be free all week during the day to do whatever I would like while he learns or whatever it is that they do all day.
We are staying at the Hampton Inn, located in downtown Austin. Nick literally walks out of the hotel and one block to the convention center, which is very handy. No waiting on shuttles to get him there and back for everything. We are on the 9th floor, so we have a pretty decent view of PF Changs and the convention center itself.
