Well ok - technically it's the beginning of Day 2 but I was having too much fun yesterday night to keep blogging.
Here's a summary of what happened:
Dinner where I sat with some interesting folks, Ward (the wiki guy) , Bjorn (from the eclipse foundation), Ethan (Zvents), Paul (wsfinder) and a few journalists and a venture guy. Great conversation ranging from how much BS the Microsoft guys were putting out on stage to what people's favorite development tools were.
The stuff the Microsoft guys were putting was really terrible though. Don't get me wrong. I do like Microsoft and used to work there but their performance at the dinner was really off the mark for the audience. They just didn't say much. I told the journalist at NY Times and Barron's to make sure to note that are table was extremely disinterested in the Microsoft answers!
After dinner was the Google after hours cocktail hour. Thanks Google! It was great to catch up with old friends there from Jeremy @ Ebay to Kevin @ Yahoo.
Day 2 is going to be less blogging for me. I have a bunch of people that I need to meet rather than sessions to go to but I'll still be attending all the major stuff.
