Meetup crazy.

I learned so much at WordCamp that I decided finding a WordPress meetup group was only the next logical step to continuing my WordPress fun. So I found one, and then another, and signed up for both.  Then I realized there was probably a meetup for women motorcycle riders, and sure enough, I found one.  Of course I continued to find other groups with my other interests. At some point, I became curious about this website called Meetup which was helping me find people with the same interests as me. I scrolled all the way to the bottom and saw the  "We're Hiring" link.  I clicked on it and found a HI-larious post on the differences between working at Google and at Meetup.  You should read it for yourself. And if you're in NYC looking for a job, consider Meetup as a place to work. They seem pretty cool.

2009 WordCamp SF thoughts & impressions.

Overall, I thought WordCamp was a lot of fun, especially attending with Sarah and Carolyn.  I am duly impressed with the people from Automattic, and of course, with Matt Mullenweg.  Sounds like there's a lot to look forward to with WordPress, as noted in his State of the Word talk. WordPress 2.8 should be out by the end start of the this summer and if they hold to their promise, upgrading should not be an ordeal. There were several talks I wish I had attended, but will now have to see on WordPress.tv when it's finally uploaded. In particular, I plan to check out that 4-hour work-week dude, Matt Cutts' talk, and Steve Souders' Even Faster WordPress themes.  Yes, these were the talks that I missed... if only I could be in two places at once. And lastly, WTF was that with Philip Greenspun?

Geeking out on WordPress. Excited about WordCamp.

What can I say? I've spent this entire weekend with WordPress, getting my new site up and resurrecting my blog content from a defunct WordPress install. So, the fact that WordCamp is coming up this weekend is quite appropriate. I'm heading across the bridge to network, learn, and basically geek out on WordPress. I'll be accompanied by a fellow WordPress geek, Sarah, who does amazing work using said awesome tool, and Carolyn, designer and project manager extraordinaire. So if you haven't already signed up for WordCamp, it's too late! The registration is closed.  Bummer. I'm sure I'll be blogging about it though, along with the other 706 attendees.
