We went to WordCamp!

Scott and I attended a WordCamp in Fremont this weekend. We heard speakers lecture on various aspects of blogging and WordPress for a whole day.  We arrived early, bought coffee at Peets, and then headed over to the Adobe campus. I revved up the laptop but my aircard wouldn’t connect. I guess we were too deep in the basement for it. Scott got me linked to the Wi-Fi just in time because it only accepted a certain numbers of users before refusing any further connections. I really enjoyed being able to check things that the speakers were talking about and to read the tweets about WordCamp all day while listening to everyone around me bitch about not having Internet and smacking their MacBooks in frustration. We learned about different ways to update your blog and the changes coming in the next version of WP, heard some super technical, jargon laden lectures that only Scott could comprehend, and some cool ideas for widgets to add to the ol’ blog.  My favorite lecture was Ian Lurie, who critiqued three different blogs. I heard that the lectures are all supposed to be posted on the WP Seattle site, but I don’t see them yet. If you want to see the blogs and his critiques, you may email me for my notes.
