Far too long between posts

Yes, far too long since I last posted here.

As some might know, we ran Web Directions in Canada. And it was, IMHO, fantastic - but so concurred many others.

At the end of the conference the audience gave it a standing ovation. We were very affected by that. The speakers were amazing (sadly Douglas Bowman had to withdraw at th elast moment with a bad back, which has plagued him for some time). The social side was fantastic - parties by Adobe and Media Temple (which actually made the Vancouver social pages), and the ski trip to whistler went off as well as such organized mayhem could possiby - including the best weather you could hope for, new snow on day 2, and Microsoft's wonderful hopitality at the foot of the slopes.

You can folow all the aciton at Flickr (last week's #1 tag!), Techorati, and the conference blog (including a repro of the aforementioned social pages).

So, back home to my much missed wife and daughter, with so little to do. My microformats book is almost done - it's due out late March, but order a copy today (at 33% off already! - help boost my rank higher than #1.5 million, please!), and I'm hard at work on Style Master 5, as well as sundry other projects, and presentations for IA Summit, and now Web 2.0 Expo in San Francisco in April (yeah yeah, the irony given some of my posts on "web 2.0" but I am a sell out realist).

More news on all that soon,

Well, WDN2007 was my first conference, and I was impressed by the whole thing. I've just got to say well done on the conference! It seemed well organized and executed. The goodies and parties didn't hurt either!

I'll be looking forward to attending future conferences for sure.

Thanks Grant,

the truth is, the attendees make a conference, and you lot were amazing.

I had a few tears in my eyes at the end (and a couple recalling the moment) when you all gave us a standing ovation.
One of my best moments ever!

So thanks so much for that

Well, I could tell the better half of the conference was the mingling and socializing. The sessions were good, of course, but I think the meet and greet was overall even better.
