08-Aug-11 15:17 | standaloneSA        @SFoskett is just getting revenge from my very first #TechFieldDay when I wrote a blog post and called him our evil taskmaster #SANchat
08-Aug-11 15:17 | gminks        RT @SFoskett: We’ll be broadcasting the presentations live on Thursday and Friday at http://bit.ly/TFD7Vid so everyone can tune in! #SANchat
08-Aug-11 15:18 | LiemNguyen        @SFoskett Great schedule. Of course, we’re very excited for Dell to be part of Thursday and Friday sessions #SANchat
08-Aug-11 15:18 | SFoskett        I suggest folks follow @TechFieldDay/TFD7-delegates to follow all the #TechFieldDay folks in one spot! #SANchat

08-Aug-11 15:19 | mattvogt        Wish I could join #SANChat this morning. Mondays are rough (checking backups, meetings). Might get a minute to pop in.
08-Aug-11 15:19 | gminks        @SFoskett I’m in Austin now w @jgargis and @alisonatdell working hard preparing for #techfieldday #sanchat
08-Aug-11 15:20 | mjbrender        RT @SFoskett: I suggest folks follow @TechFieldDay/TFD7-delegates to follow all the #TechFieldDay folks in one spot! #SANchat
08-Aug-11 15:23 | LiemNguyen        @SFoskett Strong list of delegates. I met many of them in #TechFieldDay Seattle last summer. How has the event changed in 1 yr? #SANchat
08-Aug-11 15:24 | SFoskett        @LiemNguyen We try to bring in a fresh group for each event, but @Plankers, @WCPreston, & @WebJunkie were at #TechFieldDay 3 #SANchat
08-Aug-11 15:25 | SFoskett        @LiemNguyen We are trying to keep #TechFieldDay pure and fresh – like a laundry detergent! 🙂 #SANchat
08-Aug-11 15:27 | SFoskett        @LiemNguyen We haven’t changed the #TechFieldDay format, but the people are different each time, and live streaming video is new! #SANchat
08-Aug-11 15:27 | annematter        RT @BrandonJRiley: Joining #SANchat – Head on over to this link if you want to join. http://tweetchat.com/room/SANchat #SANchat
08-Aug-11 15:28 | BrandonJRiley        RT @SFoskett: @LiemNguyen We are trying to keep #TechFieldDay pure < Do you find it tough to come up with independent delegates? #SANchat
08-Aug-11 15:31 | SFoskett        @BrandonJRiley It’s really hard to pick the right people. Matt and I spend lots of time researching new people for #TechFieldDay #SANchat
08-Aug-11 15:31 | SFoskett        @BrandonJRiley And of course no one new gets an invite without going through a voting process with prior #TechFieldDay delegates! #SANchat
08-Aug-11 15:33 | gminks        @SFoskett have you ever had women delegates? How can we help you find more! #sanchat #techfieldday
08-Aug-11 15:33 | SFoskett        We look for independence, technical knowledge, contribution to the community, and fit with #TechFieldDay: http://bit.ly/Go2TFD #SANchat
08-Aug-11 15:33 | mattvogt        How many nominations and/or submissions do you receive for for #TechFieldDay? #SANchat
08-Aug-11 15:34 | SFoskett        @gminks We have indeed had just one female #TechFieldDay delegate: @JenniferLucille! Always looking for more diversity! #SANchat
08-Aug-11 15:35 | standaloneSA        @mattvogt There are TONS of nominations / submissions that we go through when we do events, but we’re always looking for more! #SANchat
08-Aug-11 15:35 | SFoskett        @mattvogt We have researched 300 prospective delegates and have had almost 80 nominations in the past year! http://bit.ly/Go2TFD #SANchat
08-Aug-11 15:36 | SFoskett        Although people whine that all “the good independents” are being snapped up by vendors, there are wonderful new folks coming up! #SANchat
08-Aug-11 15:39 | SFoskett        If you or someone you know would be a good #TechFieldDay delegate, add them to our list at http://bit.ly/Go2TFD! #SANchat
08-Aug-11 15:39 | JenniferLucille    @SFoskett @gminks #SANchat We need @amyengineer as a delegate! #TechFieldDay
08-Aug-11 15:40 | standaloneSA        #truth RT @webjunkie If you know a tech blogger who might like to be a #techfieldday delegate, promote them so they’re noticed #SANchat
08-Aug-11 15:41 | gminks        RT @JenniferLucille: @SFoskett @gminks #SANchat We need @amyengineer as a delegate! #TechFieldDay <make it happen Foskett! 🙂 #SANchat
08-Aug-11 15:41 | LiemNguyen        @SFoskett Besides women in IT, any other group of potential delegates you’d like to recruit for #TechFieldDay? #SANchat
08-Aug-11 15:41 | webjunkie        @SFoskett Does technical specialization make a difference for a delegate? Or are you open to all types of bloggers? #techfieldday #sanchat
08-Aug-11 15:42 | gminks        @webjunkie If you know a tech blogger who might like to be a #techfieldday delegate, promote them so theyre noticed #SANchat
08-Aug-11 15:42 | SFoskett        @webjunkie We look for people who can have a deep technical discussion, but it’s great to have a variety of disciplines in the room #SANchat
08-Aug-11 15:43 | SFoskett        @LiemNguyen I’m trying to bring in more non-native English speakers and folks from outside the USA and Europe to #TechFieldDay #SANchat
08-Aug-11 15:43 | gminks        @SFoskett 5% is ok… I don’t know tech women who don’t work for vendors. 🙁 #SANchat
08-Aug-11 15:44 | SFoskett        @JenniferLucille perhaps if @amyengineer or someone who knows her added her to our delegate nomination form… http://bit.ly/Go2TFD #SANchat
08-Aug-11 15:44 | gminks        RT @SFoskett: We look for people who can have a deep technical discussion, but its great to have a variety of disciplines #SANchat
08-Aug-11 15:44 | edsai            @gminks sad thing about independence and ppl stereotyped who work for vendors. I was first #techfieldday casualty. #SANchat
08-Aug-11 15:45 | gminks        @SFoskett do you keep in close contact with previous delegates? Even if lots of them are now vendor-material 😉 #SANchat
08-Aug-11 15:45 | RodMatDell        RT @LiemNguyen: RT @webjunkie: If u know a blogger in tech who might like to b a #techfieldday delegate help promote their blog so they get noticed #SANchat
08-Aug-11 15:48 | gminks        @SFoskett who would you say is your most famous and/or notorious #techfieldday alum? #SANchat
08-Aug-11 15:49 | BrandonJRiley        RT @HPStorageGuy: @SFoskett @edsai W/ a paycheck comes a certain bias. <Yea, the stereotype exists for a reason. #SANchat
08-Aug-11 15:50 | theronconrey        RT @SFoskett: If you or someone you know would be a good #TechFieldDay delegate, add them to our list at http://bit.ly/Go2TFD! #SANchat
08-Aug-11 15:50 | LiemNguyen        @SFoskett The beauty of #TechFieldDay is that you’ve created a setting where indie bloggers can better understand vendors. #SANchat
08-Aug-11 15:50 | SFoskett        Definitely @WCPreston! He’s notorious in every sense of the word! RT @gminks: @SFoskett who is most famous/ notorious alum? #SANchat
08-Aug-11 15:50 | otherscottlowe    RT @SFoskett: We have some great #TechFieldDay alumni like @OtherScottLowe, @FOwen, @Plankers, @WCPreston, @WebJunkie, & @StandaloneSA #SANchat
08-Aug-11 15:51 | LiemNguyen        @SFoskett What did you mean by “it’s not inconceivable for a vendor employee to go!”? #SANchat
08-Aug-11 15:52 | webjunkie        RT @SFoskett: Definitely @WCPreston! He’s notorious in every sense of the word! Yeah I would agree with that #doublesatTFD #SANchat
08-Aug-11 15:52 | gminks        @SFoskett @WCPreston < cannot wait to meet him in person, did not realize he was notorious! #SANchat
08-Aug-11 15:52 | jgargis        RT @gminks: @SFoskett @WCPreston < cannot wait to meet him in person, did not realize he was notorious! #SANchat <-makes him a living legend
08-Aug-11 15:52 | SFoskett        @LiemNguyen Given the right event and person, anyone could be invited as a delegate. But presenter competitors are definitely out. #SANchat
08-Aug-11 15:52 | gminks        @SFoskett cuz IDK my money would be on @Knieriemen … #SANchat
08-Aug-11 15:53 | AlisonatDell        DITTO! 🙂 RT @gminks: @SFoskett @WCPreston < cannot wait to meet him in person, did not realize he was notorious! #SANchat
08-Aug-11 15:54 | SFoskett        @LiemNguyen For example for e-Discovery Field Day an employee of a company that does not compete in that space might get an invite #SANchat
08-Aug-11 15:54 | gminks        @SFoskett what are you hoping to hear from the companies you will visit this week in Austin? #techfieldday #SANchat
08-Aug-11 15:59 | webjunkie        @SFoskett did you order the empty Gartner/IDC water bottles for use during the #techfieldday presentations #sanchat to keep things technical
08-Aug-11 15:59 | SFoskett        @edsai That’s true! And some supposedly-independent folks have received LOW scores in #TechFieldDay voting for their bias! #SANchat
08-Aug-11 16:00 | SFoskett        @webjunkie I think we need some virtual water bottles to throw at people on Twitter! #Waterbottle #SANchat
08-Aug-11 16:00 | edsai            @HPStorageGuy @sfoskett that said, #techfieldday has done a lot of good things. Was proud to be a delegate and presenter. #SANchat
08-Aug-11 16:01 | SFoskett        We don’t forbid analysts or journalists at #TechFieldDay either, but some score low on independence or technical knowledge… #SANchat
08-Aug-11 16:01 | LiemNguyen        @SFoskett Will you ever have an alumni #TechFieldDay, like the best-rated delegates going to Madagascar like they do on Survivor? #SANchat
08-Aug-11 16:02 | AlisonatDell        love that idea! RT @LiemNguyen: @SFoskett Will you ever have an alumni #TechFieldDay? #SANchat
08-Aug-11 16:03 | SFoskett        @LiemNguyen I like mixing it up between alumni and new folks to keep fresh ideas in the mix. And folks always surprise me! #SANchat
08-Aug-11 16:03 | jgargis        RT @AlisonatDell: love that idea! RT @LiemNguyen: @SFoskett Will you ever have an alumni #TechFieldDay? #SANchat <-I would watch!
08-Aug-11 16:03 | gminks        RT @SFoskett: We dont forbid analysts or journalists at #TechFieldDay either <I totally nominate @vanessaalvarez1 & @dsalons then! #SANchat
08-Aug-11 16:04 | LiemNguyen        @SFoskett Last Q: I asked you this before: How will you know if the #TechFieldDay event was a success? #SANchat
08-Aug-11 16:06 | Meesh_Says        RT @sfoskett: We’ll be broadcasting the presentations live on Thursday and Friday at http://bit.ly/TFD7Vid so everyone can tune in! #SANchat
08-Aug-11 16:06 | SFoskett        @LiemNguyen I won’t know #TechFieldDay is successful until I see delegates and vendors still talking months after the event #SANchat
08-Aug-11 16:07 | SFoskett        @LiemNguyen Short-term coverage is fine, but it’s lasting community development that marks real success! #SANchat
08-Aug-11 16:08 | mattvogt        RT @SFoskett: @LiemNguyen Short-term coverage is fine, but its lasting community development that marks real success! #SANchat

08-Aug-11 16:12 | LiemNguyen        @SFoskett I hope people will understand & recognize that Dell is a creator and innovator of enterprise IT solutions #TechFieldDay #SANchat
08-Aug-11 16:13 | dell_storage        @SFoskett It really is all about community! #techfieldday #sanchat
08-Aug-11 16:20 | LiemNguyen        @SFoskett A successful #TechFieldDay is also truly about engagement with our community. cc @gminks & @jgargis #SANchat
