One of the best conferences

Walter Rumsby not only kept score of the memes at Webstock, but also heard something interesting:

…on Friday evening I was chatting to Tom Coates and along came Nat Torkington who said hullo (to Tom). They both agreeded that this was one of the best conferences they had ever been to. So I wouldn’t be surprised if O’Reilly conferences borrow one or two ideas.

Meanwhile, I’m already looking forward to the next Webstock.

Fold the ideas, techniques, and technologies

Brian writes:

One thing that really came out as a common thread was the need for focus on people in all of the wonderful stuff we create for the web. … What Webstock means to us is that we’ll be taking a lot of what was discussed and seeing how we can fold the ideas, techniques, and technologies into our core product. We’re very excited and can’t wait to apply what we’ve learned!
