Mark Rittman on the blogger dinner
Mark Rittman uploaded some photos of last nights dinner. It was great - I knew some of the people "face to face" (Steve Muench, Sue Harper and Mark) but not the rest of them. It it always nice to put a face to the name - to see what the people actually look like.
Yesterday I had an OTN "meet and greet" session in the OTN lounge. The size was perfect - just about 20 people showed up and we sat around and talked for about an hour/hour and a half. Gave away some books and t-shirts and everyone seemed happy, myself included. Everyone that came pretty much participated. Mark Rittman did his this morning and had a similar pleasant experience. I have one more tomorrow morning at 11:30 am for anyone that wants to just come down and talk (Moscone Center West, ground floor).
Apress arranged for a book signing in the book store today from 12:30-1:30. The traffic was great, a nice steady stream - got to meet even more people whose names I recognized. That perhaps is one of the best parts of this week - getting to meet everyone.
Anyway, OOW is more than half over now - but going strong. Just me and 35,000 other people walking from place to place (it is huge).
