I had the privilege today to facilitate a JUMP! session for the SoTEC conference at the Long Beach Hilton Hotel. What a great group of speakers at this event — really headlined by Peter Coffee, the director of platform research for SalesForce.com. He gave a visionary presentation of what life is, and will be like when software as a service and real cloud computing are ubiquitous. Fantastic! I was pleased to be included on the agenda with such great speakers.

Also, on my way back to LAX, I thought I’d check to see if JUMP! has made it to any stores in California yet. Lo and behold, I went into the Borders in Torrance (about 1/2 between Long Beach and LAX), and there were TWO copies in the store! It’s hard to explain, exactly, but there’s something amazing about seeing JUMP! “in the real world.”

So… I was a little “sneaky”, and I took the two books, and turned them “cover-out.” It helps a LOT with sales if folks are just browsing, and you haven’t heard this from me — but let’s start a national trend! Go to your local Borders, Barnes and Noble, Books-a-Million, Tattered Cover, etc., and if you see JUMP!, turn it on the shelf so that the cover faces out! (I’d really appreciate it…) Thank you!
