So this one time at WordCamp

WordCampSaturday in the Castro, did you see some geeky-looking folks wandering around with nametags with blog URLs on them?

Or were you leaving the Giants game that night and running to geeky-looking folks trying to find Pier 38 and getting off at the wrong MUNI stations?

Yeah, that was me and a few hundred other WordPress users (and other bloggers who wished they were WordPress users) who descended upon the Swedish American Hall in the Castro for a day of camp-style conferencing, networking, and geeking at WordCamp.

Pier 38Then we were off to the party at Pier 38. To get there, we swam against the current of Giants fans on MUNI and on the Embarcadero. Side note: The European with us couldn’t believe the Giants crowd. There was no cheering or rioting. There wasn’t a holligan to be found. Everyone was calmly waiting for the MUNI, and politely puting up with us running on and off the train to get to the right station. What’s the deal, fans?

MusicSo back to the conference: cool folks, cool presentations, cool music. Matt and all of the WordPress peeps threw a great free geek event here in SF.

See if you can find your favorite Internet-famous person in the many WordCamp photos posted on Flickr.

    Check out lauren’s blog – http://hornline.wordpress.com/2006/08/06/wordcamp-was-yesterday/ too for some statistical recaps of the event. I was like “wow, there’s a lot of women here” and another woman said, “You have very low expectations.”

    BBQ was good, thanks Matt. I like the last-minuteness of it. I heard about it Friday, the list of speakers was lined up Friday night!
