Hello From ThinkTank 2010 In Del Mar California

ThinkTank 2010

I’ve just touch down in sunny San Diego for ThinkTank 2010. Held on the beach of Del Mar, ThinkTank brings together the who’s who of the Internet business world for three days of fun and networking. My plane landed at the same time as Zac Johnson’s so we’re sharing a limo to our hotel. Then we’re going to change into our beach wear and hit the Tank.

This is the first time that I’ve attended an event that is held on a beach. Then again, ThinkTank isn’t your average event. Today will start off on the beach, where everyone will get a chance to meet each other, discuss their current projects, goals and areas of expertise. After that it will be a nonstop three days of fun in the sun, surfing lessons, crazy fun activities, and nonstop networking, problem solving, strategies of success and drinks. I’m looking forward to meeting all the attendees as well as all the John Chow dot Com readers who took advantage of my sponsorship offer to attend ThinkTank.

Normally, what happens at ThinkTank stays at ThinkTank because everyone has to sign an NDA promising to not reveal the secrets that are discussed. However, I have my camera with me anyway and plan to do a Dot Com Pho – ThinkTank Edition. Look for more updates soon!

    Awesome can’t wait for that dot com pho.
    I wonder if it’ll stay sunny in San D. Te weathers been weird in socal lately.

    1. The weather has been weird here too and on the cool side.

      I wonder what the dot com pho will be like from the think tank location too.

      I think that it’ll be away from the main event so that no secrets are revealed.

      1. d3so says:

        Well, it seems that there’s going to be a dot com pho in Vancouver as well. Will you be attending that?

        1. Yes, I attend quite often and it’s always good and a lot of fun. I haven’t attended only the last couple of times but that’s because I’ll be attending a 4 day event next week and I needed to do other things and also also because John wasn’t there.

          1. So John’s absence is also one reason ?

          2. d3so says:

            Lol I suppose.
            Are the Vancouver people still going to record their event?

  2. Tony says:

    Can’t wait to hear more! My goal is to be there next year.

    @d3so – it has been wierd here this year…I feel like i’m living in Seattle again 🙂

    1. d3so says:

      Yeah, I would like to attend next year too. Hopefully, I’ll be successful by then.

      1. Best of luck d3so …

        But however we would love to know your plan for coming years … and how you are dividing them in per quarter so that you can keep the rhythm and success rate.

  3. Hey John,

    You are moving fast. Just a short while ago you were in Miami.

    Enjoy the beach.

    1. d3so says:

      I know. That’s what living the dot com lifestyle is about.

    2. Alex Dumitru says:

      I wish the autumn didn’t come here this fast 🙁 All I can do now is look at my pool :))

      1. I have the same sentiment. This year the summer turned into an early fall at least 3 weeks earlier.

        1. Climate is changing my dear friends …

          1. Alex Dumitru says:

            Yes, but it was supposed to get warmer 🙂

  4. daniel says:

    It is awesome to be a well known internet guru john… 🙂 when will my day come?? anyway, please share a little bit of your experience with us john… thanx..:-)

    1. d3so says:

      Your day will come when you decide to dedicate yourself to becoming one 😉

      1. And when you are going to do that.

        1. d3so says:

          I myself have already decided.
          I just need to make a detailed road map to keep myself on task and organized.

    2. Alex Dumitru says:

      Learn, Research, Test and WORK a lot 🙂

  5. Hey John

    Have a Great time!

  6. Anton Hassan says:

    Isn’t there any new stuff that you can share with us out of Think Tank, John?

    1. d3so says:

      He’s probably going to share how his experience was but no secrets that they discussed.

      1. Alex Dumitru says:

        I really don’t think they discuss big secrets at this kind of events.

        1. The only way to find out for sure would be to be there.

          1. Well all people at there will be businessman or businesswoman so I am sure there will be huge business talk … and how to earn more and more.

          2. Alex Dumitru says:

            Yeah, but this doesn’t mean they share their secrets

  7. Kate Kutny says:

    Sounds like your having fun already John 🙂 That is so great you are there. Hope you get to meet many awesome people. I would have loved to go. Hopefully you have this thing again, so I can go to it when I am able to.

    1. I am sure this kind of event help a lot and you can get good business deal or joint venture as well.

      If you want to be rich than be in the company of rich people.

  8. this event is literally ~2 hour-drive from where I live. I wish I could attend events like this. Have fun!

    1. d3so says:

      Where do you live?
      It’s a 2 hour drive from where I live as well.

      1. Alex Dumitru says:

        Then why didn’t you attend? 🙂

        1. Finance matter my dear friend …

          This is not free event …

  9. I love that name – Think Tank. Sounds inspiring. I’d like to attend one myself…

    1. Yes these two words describe this event perfectly.

      1. Alex Dumitru says:

        I’m not very sure about it. All I can see is drinking and having fun :))
