Do you remember the first time?

These days I tend to know quite a few people at any conference I attend, even it’s just those (wonderful, gorgeous, intelligent) people who have invited me to speak. In the case of UXLibs, which I chair and co-organise, I know heaps and heaps of people, either serial attendees (thank you for keeping on coming back!) or people who I have met before elsewhere (at workshops or other events), or who I have connected with on Twitter. However, I have never forgotten how I felt early on in my career when I used to attend conferences with some fear and trepidation.
