Author and industry luminary Phil Simon summed up this week's iMedia Agency Summit as "a first-rate conference in a great location rife with smart cookies." With over 300 "smart cookies" at the event at the beautiful Hyatt Regency Lost Pines Resort & Spa, it's no surprise that the tweets and photos coming out of the event are packed with great insights, fresh ideas, snake sightings, and... a freshly shaved alpaca.
