Almost like being there. Almost.

Talking is out. Typing is the new talking. at Flickr.comI'm feeling well enough (unlike yesterday) to join some of the conference crew for dinner tonight downtown—my dad is kind enough to give me a ride. But I feel like I've been hanging out with them all day:

  1. I've been looking at photos from Flickr through the day.
  2. Several people have been live blogging events.
  3. The Podcast Spot crew have done a great job putting up audio and video of sessions not long after they happen (good job on the podcast session, by the way, DaveO!).
  4. Most importantly, there's been a vibrant backchannel on Skype (not on IRC, as had been planned, which is interesting in itself—part of that is my fault for pointing everyone over to the Skype channel, to be honest).

The Skype conversation has been snarky and fun, and it's nice to be able to communicate with my wife, who attended, as well as all the others I know. Plus I got to rest all day while they didn't.
