Dear Tony Perkins and the organizers of the AlwaysOn Stanford Summit:

Please stop sending me messages thanking me for coming to your Summit. This was months ago. I did not go. If I'd gone, you would know by the inflated bar tab and a cleaning bill for Stanford's carpets.

Four times now, AlwaysOn organizers, you've asked me for opinions, or shown me an exciting new product, or whatever feedback you're begging for today.

Guys, if this is how you act when I don't come to your show, how clingy will you be when I do show up? This is like the guy who shows up to an afternoon coffee date with flowers.
