Inspired and energised

Umamiblog was inspired and energised:

It was, as I’d hoped, a most excellent, inspiring, re-energising and fun conference — just like the first. The crew behind Webstock managed something that isn’t as common as we hope it to be in NZ.. which was to prove it wasn’t a fluke and pull it off for a second time.

I like this interview! It runs a bit long but Roger made me feel so welcome it just came out as a spontaneous chat.

Scott had to check the bag wasn’t a special prize

Speaker Scott Berkun thought we did some things right:

the webstock bag doesn’t look like a conference bag: it looked so good I had to ask twice to make sure it was the conference bag, and not some special prize.

… The t-shirt …

Came in women’s and men’s versions. Why should I care as a man? Well, I confess: I like to look at women. Especially when they’re wearing clothes meant to fit their curvy figures. I always hear people complain about the low numbers of women at design and tech conferences. Well, maybe if they followed some of webstock’s ideas, more women would be interested in finding out about their conferences.
