Directions and Connections
22 September 2006
I am really excited.
I don't think I've been this excited about a conference ever. Web Directions is only six sleeps away (assuming I get some sleep), and I just can't wait to jump on the plane, touch down, and see all those grinning geeks. Plus I get to spend six days lounging around in Sydney! :D
As an added bonus, if you're not sick of me after that you can rock up to the Sitepoint closing party and hear me, Lucas Chan and Simon Mackie laying down some party tunes for ya. Put in your requests now, and I'll make sure that I ignore them.
If you're attending the conference and looking for something to do for the next 146 hours, Tim Lucas and I had a bit of fun putting together Web Connections – a website that will help you find others going to the conference based on name, location and interests. It'll stop you from having to remember the name of that person who you drunkenly cornered at 2AM and lectured about the sins of using text/html mime-types for XHTML documents.
It's got maps, tagging, AJAX, and microformats spouting from all orifices, so you can sit there and marvel at how buzzworthy it is. There's plenty of features that we'd love to add in, but given that we're getting paid in t-shirts you'll have to hold on till next year.
So, if you're in Sydney next week, connect up and I might see you round!
