@Matt, oh my. That had to have been a really, really stupid thing to have done to warrant such extreme reaction!

@Beth, a story from my college days that is funny now that it is 15 years old or so (and funny, too, because I was merely a witness and not a participant). Long story short, a few of my buddies did something very stupid and perhaps criminal ... and photographed it. Another buddy of mine -- or was president of the fraternity at the time and this "responsible" -- got wind of the event and the photo, and promptly drove two hours into the far reaches of Upstate New York to burn and bury said photo. Can't do that with Instagram, that's for sure!

@Broadway, thank goodness the modern marvel that is Instagram didn't come around a decade or two earlier!

@Beth, I have seen way too many grown adults act like college kids on spring break. Though I shouldn't talk. I think there are pics out there of me doing the same thing at unmentionable insurance conferences...

@Broadway, I don't know about anybody else out there but no "partying down" for me at conferences ... any more. I often think I'm in the minority, though!

@Beth, call me a noncomformist! Or perhaps it's because I am too stiff to be able to be able to bouncing around and reaching up, then down, then up, then down, with several hundred other adults.

My question for veteran conference goers is: do you still allow yourself to party down during all those free vendor parties? Or does discipline come with experience?

@Broadway -- what, you don't feel like reverting to your preschool days?

What would you describe as an awesome keynote at an analytics conference?

@Beth, I have to agree: you need to be in the mood for a keynote, and have nothing else pressing. Then you can sit back and let yourself be motivated by the speaker. However, no matter how free my time or positive attitude, any keynoter who makes me get out of my seat and stretch/do calisthenics is a big NO in my book!

@Noreen -- I'll weigh in: networking and education. Keynotes can be informative or entertaining, depending on speaker, but a nonessential part of an event, IMO. That said, one of my all-time conference highlights was the keynote address at SAS' Premiere Business Leadership Series in 2011. Colin Powell gave a fantastic talk.

It Pays to Keep Insurance Fraud in Check
While 97% of insurers say that insurance fraud has increased or remained the same in the past two years, most of those companies report benefits from anti-fraud technology in limiting the impact of fraud, including higher quality referrals, the ability to uncover organized fraud, and improve efficiency for investigators.
