I thought I would follow such an uninspired title from my last post with an equally uninspired one. But my boring titles in no way reflect my experience at WordCamp. To sum it up: it kicked some serious blogger-geek ass.
First of all, huge props to Tommy for telling me about it. And huge props to Matt for doing such a last-minute, informal event so that all of us last-minute folks could show up and be a part of such a fun day. And horray for Anna for always being up for my random SF adventures.
It was great meeting Will and Om and all of the other WordPress and blogging folks. Especially interesting to find out more about community management and the need for technical writers in the online and open source world. Good good stuff.
Suggestions for the next time:
- Parties need music. (People will DJ for free.)
- Unstructured discussions can be good, but don’t let questions from a few people completely take over.
- Vegetarian food options are always appreciated.
- 85% men
- 85% white
- 85% under age 30
Now I am all the more excited to get the latest incarnation of my blog up and running on hornline.net.
Update: My sf.metblogs.com post is now up.
