stuff I would have wanted to see at WordCamp SF 2008
Apparently they crammed it all into one day this year and the tech stuff was held separately (downstairs) from the general stuff (don’t want those devs and general users to mingle, ruh roh!)
I don’t fly so I was hoping for some audio or video recordings. I found a live video feed from some bloggers upstairs but nothing downstairs (at least not that I could find). I need to hunt down the slideshows for Crazyhorse, BuddyPress, Nginx etc. Finding a schedule of the tech stuff would probably be a good start, I found one for the general stuff upstairs but not downstairs. ZDnet covered only the non-dev side, but in detail.
Was there *no* bbPress presentation this year at WordCamp? Really?
Twitter went insane with WordCamp stuff!
added: some really good notes from Jeremy Person
ps. I can’t believe Matt stopped using LiteSpeed and switched to Nginx. As fast as Nginx is, LiteSpeed is still faster and definitely has a better interface and tech support, but I guess Matt can afford his own techs now to support open source stuff so it makes him feel better to have that flexibility. LiteSpeed isn’t cheap, especially when you have as many servers as Automattic must have.
pps. I can’t believe Matt didn’t think of all the vegans in SF and only had a BBQ lunch
