You look trustworthy. I’m going to share something with you. It’s my personal code for $50 off #IAS18. Ready? It’s “stuart50”. Use it at before the early bird rate ends on Friday. Now, don’t share that with anyone. It’s just for you. Because I like your face.

Congratulations to the Eagles on a fantastic win!

Speaking of birds… and winning… the early bird rate for #IAS18 ends on Friday, February 9. Register at before it’s too late.

Big shout out to @lauggh, experience director for #IAS18. Grace is a rock star, keeping a ton of balls in the air for IAS (and #WIAD), and doing it with good humor and aplomb. And she’s a magician with Airtable. Thanks, Grace, and all our amazing volunteers!

You say it’s too cold to go to a conference in Chicago in March? I say that’s why we don’t hold it outdoors. Sign up for #IAS18 at the early bird rate before 2/9 and stuff the cash you save in your clothing for warmth. Register now at

I’m doing some light visual design for #IAS18 while watching the SOTU. it’s a good distraction. Of course, I’m leaving the serious visual work to @Bridget_Lyons98, who’s doing a phenomenal job upgrading our look this year. Check out her portfolio here:

Just booked my flight for #IAS18. I’m going to stay long enough to see a bit of Chicago after the conf. What should I do? The Art Institute? Field Museum? Shedd Aquarium? Mag Mile? The new Apple Store? Or maybe just get an Italian Beef and some deep dish and stuff myself silly?

I get it. It’s one thing to know who is giving talks at #IAS18, and what those talks are. But you’re an IA. You want to know when they are, and you want to see them in a table, thank you very much.

Your wish is our command.

You’re already making your list, aren’t you? That’s why I love you, you crazy IA.

We’re trying as much as possible to keep #IAS18 familiar to long-time attendees, while still experimenting and making improvements. My co-chairs @iatheory and @orangelemons52 have been fantastic co-creators in this process. I’m a lucky boy. Hope y’all can join us in Chicago.
