Today was the last official day of DrupalCon Boston 2008, the latest official iteration of the biannual Drupal Conference (it alternates every six months between the U.S. and Europe). I had extremely high expectations for the week, and the conference still managed to exceed them. The power of bringing people together under one roof never ceases to amaze me, especially when those people are used to collaborating online. I can't even begin to imagine what amazing new innovations and directions will emerge as a result of the last four days. I personally was involved in four initiatives:
It was also great to meet lots of people whom I've either worked with or interacted with online, like Adam Light (aclight) who was one of the amazing leaders of the Drupal GHOP and Kieran Lal, whom I "met" while he was working for Music for America. And, of course, it was great to meetup with friends whom I hadn't seen in a long time, like my man Josh Koenig (josh_k) and his Chapter III compadres, and make a lot of new ones. One other significant development that happened during the conference is that I started the process of officially bringing on a partner to this fledgling business, something which I hope will help bring this venture to the "next" level. I'll obviously have a lot more to say about this soon, but for now I have to run to a dinner and more Drupal parties. Aint no party like a geeky party!
