I’ve been quoted again!

Dear Reader,

My friend – and Day Camp 4 Developers Camp Counselor alumni – Thursday Bram quoted me in her most recent article for Distracted Enterprise, Time to Disconnect: 5 Ways You Can Avoid Being Disturbed on Vacation. In the article, I talk about my trip to Bonair last year and how I successfully disconnected for a week despite working closely with Zend on ZendCon and planning the very first DC4D.

Four others contributed their tips as well to this interesting and short read.

Until next time,
