Header: Scott Belsky opens up the 99U Conference 2013
Being a 99U Conference virgin, I didn't have any idea what to expect and the first day didn't disappoint. Having spent the morning rapid prototyping at IDEO, I arrived for registration and the halls were packed with people waiting to have their picture taken by photographer Dennis Kleiman (I couldn't face the excessively long queue so I decided to move on!).

Soon after this I spotted two friendly-looking guys and introduced myself. It wasn't until a couple of minutes into the conversation that I discovered one of them was Garrett Camp, founding CEO of StumbleUpon. This was the first of a number of great connections I made today–nice to meet you all!
Tomorrow looks set to be another action packed schedule of inspirational talks. I can't wait!
