    they say the fear of public speaking 

    is scarier to people than the fear of death.

    this is what i learned from moderating a panel yesterday in front of many of our biggest advertisers and partners: always speak to a group of people drinking free wine blocks away from the beach.

    the panel was sharp and insightful, the audience was lively and engaging, and the people who put it together were amazing.

    i was so nervous before the gig that i had convinced myself that i had gotten car sick. i couldnt stop taking deep breaths as we walked the stairs to the swanky restauant.

    in the end everything went totally smooth.

    like fine wine

    and fried shrimp
