11/8/02, 5:40 pm – Met The Makers

On Wednesday, I attended Meet The Makers here in New York. It’s a one-day conference for web developers, and it was pretty cool. The conference is built on a great business model. Where most if not all of the attendees attend for free as VIPs and sponsors pay for the privilege of bringing the attendees up-to-date on the bleeding edge of web development. It also pays for raffle prizes, speakers and a delicious lunch. It was fun to meet the people who have taught me a lot from their sites [Zeldman, Eric Myer]. And I liked what Joshua Davis had to say, too, even though he doesn’t have that respect for inline skaters.

And it was a hell of a lot more fun than listening to the election results that morning. If I wasn’t an atheist, I’d pray for our nation and our world…
