I’m back from Gnomedex 2002, and what a blast! Last night was great, the chance to hear Doc Searls, Evan Williams and Leo Laporte all in one afternoon just takes the cake.
I’ve gotten several cool ideas that came out of listening to all the speakers, as well as the great opportunity to talk to them after the speaches. What other conference gives you total access to its speakers. Gnomedex had no elitism amongst the group or its presenters. Sure, there were separate groups but I think everyone went out of their way to make sure they met new people and had a good time.
I’ll probably post more information on my ideas at a later date, for now, they are “development secrets”. Hehe, sounds cool anyway.
I have some more pictures to wrap up the event and close up the coverage of Gnomedex, but you’ll have to wait for those. I’ll try to put them all in one comprehensive area for your viewing pleasure.
Hey! A four hour drive straight south? Where are you? I am in Kansas City, MO. Just wondering. Not stalking or anything like that! I had a great time at Gnomedex too. Nice to know there are Gnomies nearby! Seems like no one here in KC watches Tech TV! Waiting on those pics!!! We have a few group pics of the speakers but, no scanner yet!
Wait! I have my directions mixed! I am three hours south of Des Moines! I was thinking of the drive back! We were all mixed up leaving Iowa too! Lost just trying to get out of the city and it isn’t that big!!!!
I felt the speakers were very approachable too. I was amazed by that and everyone was very friendly.
Iowa was very nice, but I couldn’t find a place to eat on Friday evening after the last speaker. Everything was closed! Maybe we just didn’t walk far enough! And no 24-hour Walmart!!!! Unbelievable!
Still working on the final pics, have to get back to the work thing… Should be up later tonight or worst case, by tommorrow night.
Thanks for the feedback, even though we are about 7 hours+ away instead of a couple of hours 🙂
