It was another great time, though considerably different than last year for me. Last July, I attended with my pal Jacob – he was the only attendee I knew beforehand. He had just left PMC to freelance and I was thinking of trying something a little more rigorous. This year, thanks to my time at 10up, I ran into familiar faces and friends on the hour! I still learned a good amount but nothing too mind shattering. I made it to the afterparty and enjoyed some find food, conversation, music and drink.
I enjoyed Lyza Danger Gardner’s talk on typography and as always, was moved by Chris Lema‘s talk on blogging. We were again serenaded at lunch, the swag was rad, and the rooms were full. I was again impressed by Matt’s State of the Word, happy to hear about globalization, democracy in publishing and standardization efforts.
But, this year felt different. Once I figure out exactly why, Ill explain. In short, I’m different. I had my dream job and realized it wasnt a dream, so Im conjuring up a new dream. Its going well, but I can’t elucidate here. So here are some pictures.
