If you had to put together a conference or some kind of speaking engagement, what do you think it would be about? What is it that you have enough expertise to offer, or what do you want to tell the rest of the world most of all?

Interesting. Please elaborate.

People get caught up in the most minuscule parts of their life. There are bigger things than my phone bill being higher than normal or that so-and-so said something to someone about me or any of that kind of crap. And yet, I know people who spend far too much of their lives mired in that kind of petty thinking, to the point of forgetting that there's anything else to live for.

I need to learn to write stuff like this in a more positive tone

I'm not disagreeing with you, but I would say this: most of life is made up of the small things, the dribs and drabs of drama, glimmers of happiness and rivulets of sadness. I think that the people who fail to appreciate these things are the ones that fail to relate with other people on any meaningful level, because when it comes to life, they JUST DON'T GET IT.

That is a damn hard thing to answer. I've done speaking engagements, and I know I can sometimes be good at it and sometimes be absolutely terrible. I suppose if I had some coaching as to how to pull one off, my expertise is specifically in webcomics.

An easier topic for me to discuss, however, would be ad design. Fewer details and I'm just as good at it.

But I wish I was knowledgeable enough to talk about something more broad and fun.
