Ned: What sessions look particularly interesting to you?
Mike: I am particularly interested in sessions pertaining to business communication.
Ned: Could you narrow it down a little bit for us?
Mike: I will attend sessions that focus on corporate communication, measuring communication effectiveness, blogging and technology.
Ned: Do you plan to take the Bourbon Street Familiarization/Indoctrination tour at 4p.m. on Saturday?
Mike: Ned, I have never had to take a Familiarization tour of Bourbon Street. When I walk on Bourbon Street, they know who I am. They even have a nickname for me–“Buddy.” The last time I was on Bourbon Street, at least four guys standing in front of bars said to me, “Hey Buddy–come in here, I've got what you're looking for.”
Ned: Did they have what you were looking for?
Mike: Actually, no. At the time, I was looking for a fondue fork.
Ned: How will people know you are a JOTW reader?
Mike: I dunno. I'm kind of inconspicuous. Like many other 6'5″ bald guys with beards, I tend to blend in to whatever environment I'm in.
Ned: Oh, is that supposed to be a beard? What will you tell people if they ask you what JOTW means?
Mike: That you don't pay me enough.
