WordCamp conference

At a WordCamp conference this weekend – a collection of people using the tool WordPress primarily for blogging – we use it at work and it’s what my ‘new’ blog is now running on. It’s up at the Mt Vic Bowling Club – a very yesteryear type establishment inside – complete with flowers in the toilet and engraved boards of lifetime members. It’s in a lovely sheltered spot and the bowling green out the window was incredibly green and lovely and sunny and warm for our coffee and lunch breaks.


The founder of WordPress was a guest speaker today, very charming and inspiring. This is my first conference like this, the few work things I’ve ever been on in my career have been training type things and I think today was fairly typical of events like this based on the stories The Mister brings back from the ones he’s attended. The people that are used to presenting, especially Americans (like the WordPress guy) are really good and really inspiring. I couldn’t stand up there and speak as freely as they do. And answer questions from left field with such aplomb.

The guys from Coffee Supreme were there and them (the actual Supreme guys) making coffee was fantastic. Enough to make me switch from Fuel even except there are absolutely no guarantees when you go to a Supreme cafe that you’ll get a decent barista.  I just can’t explain how good it was, perfect temperature and it was like drinking silk – thanks Ralph, Olivia and girl who’s name I don’t know.

Went for a wander around the block at lunch time and found this great house with an orange car, orange front door and orange picket fence!
