I spent today at An Event Apart. There’s no way I could possibly describe everything, so I’ll just list some highlights.
Method Arts threw a party last night where Kris and I got free T-shirts. Beer is still gross.
During the conference, I sat next to Pete LePage, the Product Manager of the Developer Division of Internet Explorer 7 (I actually met him last night). He’s a really nice guy and he had some really encouraging things to say about IE7 and Windows Vista.
Jethro (from Throbosho) was there. He’s also a web developer.
Zeldman’s presentation has a slide in it titled “Underwear.”
Zeldman: “So what it says is–”
At this point, a woman in the audience sneezed. Everyone laughed.
Zeldman was saying something about the difference between PCs and Macs. I think he was dogging PCs a bit (I don’t exactly remember). As soon as he finished saying that, his Mac’s screen flashed blue (the same colour of blue as the BSOD).
I ate lunch with Eric Meyer (he came over to our table and asked if he could sit down at the last empty seat).
Kelly Goto (critiquing a website): “I’m not going to harsh on you.”
“Well, I am going to harsh on you a little bit.”
Zeldman: “The client payed, like, a million dollars for these colours and they’re vomit and chimp brains.”
As I was walking to the car from the after party, some guy walking down the street asked me if I knew where he could “get some grass.”
Highlight of the day: Having my photo taken with Zeldman and Eric Meyer (I’ll post the photo soon).0 People like this. Be the first!
