Webstock 2012

Webstock 2012, originally uploaded by Mister Wind-Up Bird.

Attended Webstock last week. While geared toward web developers, most of the talks were actually at a very high level — lots of emphasis on how generally to think about tech and design. More relevant to my work that I might have expected, and actually pretty motivational. Inspirational, even. (Though if I’d had to hear one more time about how gosh darned special it was to be a geek and how that affected everything I thought, said and did, I would have bitten the head off a chicken.)

Also, short shameful confession: during the conference, I stood next to Matthew “The Oatmeal” Inman in line for coffee. I tried to think of something to say other than “I luvz your work, dude!” Turns out I couldn’t, and I was secretly relieved when he got his coffee and left.
