I spent most of the day yesterday in Palo Alto at barcamp. The talks were great, the quality of people who have shown up is mind-blowing for a less than a week of organization. Big shout out to Chris for getting the whole thing put together.
Of note from yesterday were Ping’s talk on anti-phishing techniques and the morning discussions about user-generated content; a discussion which turned to user-created content of almost every form.
I expect I’ll be going back this afternoon to catch the tail end of things.
I feel truly lucky to live in a place where I can attend such things on a whim.
