WordPress WordCamp 2009 in San Francisco a Huge Success

Sunday, May 31st, 2009

UCSF‘s Mission Bay campus was all filled up yesterday with attentive youths, Genius Bar geniuses, and Laughing Squid’s Scott Beale, so that can mean only one thing – it must have been yet another one-day WordCamp from WordPress

As always, the focus is “on how to be a better blogger, on the development and future of WordPress, and other topics of interest.” Just read the WordCamp Report for the deets:

But, What Does WordPress Mean To You? That’s something to ponder as you…

Get free help from WP geniuses, such as Brian Colinger, for instance.

Or peruse the Job Board:

Or proactively look for work with your name card.

Or nosh on Southern BBQ complete with ham-hocked collard greens

And steer clear of the WordPress bully boys, with their tattoos and their flashing gang signs. There was lots of stuff to do.

Plus, attendees got American Apparel T-shirts. All this could have been yours for just $25. What a bargain.

See you next year!

San Francisco WordCamp 2008 a Huge Success.

Monday, August 18th, 2008

As promised, there was a huge turnout for WordCamp from WordPress last Saturday. Check out an insanely detailed account here and some nice photos from Adam Tow here.

Perhaps the best part of WordCamp is the Apple-inspired Genius Bar, where everybody knows your name.

Making your way in the world today takes everything you’ve got.
Taking a break from all your worries, sure would help a lot.

Wouldn’t you like to get away?

Sometimes you want to go

Where everybody knows your name,
and they’re always glad you came.
You wanna be where you can see,
our troubles are all the same
You wanna be where everybody knows
Your name.

See you there!

As I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
I take a look at my life and realize there’s nothing left
Cause I’ve been scripting and blogging so long that
Even my mama thinks that my mind is gone

Bin spending most our lives
Living in a Blogga’s Paradise 

Keep spending most our lives
