What does Blake think the importance of State of Search is?
State of Search brings in great speakers and is a smaller conference compared to a lot of the others. Instead of wading through 10k people to find an industry friend or make a new one, State of Search’s environment isn’t overwhelming. And BBQ. BBQ is important.
