BACK FROM VANCOUVER... NORTHERN VOICE 2006 AND OSMCS SUMMIT
I didn't blog about it, but since last Wednesday I was in Vancouver. First couple days to attend the Open Source CMS (Content Management System) Summit, which was an international convening of Drupal users. GoingOn Networks sponsored some of this and it was a small step towards our greater involvement in the Drupal community. Boris Mann, Roland Tanglao, and others did a great job.
Friday was Moosecamp, like Foocamp and Barcamp, which was for the attendees of Northern Voice to conduct sessions of their own for everyone.
Finally, Saturday was the Northern Voice 2006 conference. Half the sessions didn't interest me and the others were fair to good. It was more interesting meeting various people throughout the whole week starting with Dries Buytaert, founder of Drupal, David Sifry and many others.
How did I get away from home for so long? Christine was in Asia for work since last Sunday, so I was allowed to go :) Our flights worked out well too since I arrived this morning at 10:30am from Vancouver and she arrived at 11:30am. From the airport, we went straight to house hunting... (she's a slave-driver)
