TechCrunch held their second annual party on Friday night and I was there with a few of the guys from Automattic. It was my first time being at a gathering like this, but we had a good time and I got a couple of shots off.
In the collage (or montage?) above you should be able to pick out Scott Beale, Kristopher Tate, Thomas Hawk and of course the Automattic guys, Matt Mullenweg, Michael Adams, Barry Abrahamson, and Raanan Bar-Cohen.
I had a great chat with Beau Lebens of Feedville who’s doing some interesting stuff with WPMU. Looking forward to seeing that. Unfortunately I don’t recall who anyone else is, but if you leave a comment here I’ll fill in the blanks!
As usual, Scott Beale had the first shots up. He must have blogged them as soon as he got home!
Update, lots more coverage on TechCrunch.com by Michael Arrington including videos and photos.
Yum! Yum! Alex cuts the delicious chocolate birthday cake in Herbivore, San Francisco! That crazy Matt Mullenweg fella can’t resist helping him with the cake. Come to think of it, did anyone not eat the cake? It was so nice!
It’s a bike on the ground, why are you photographing it? That’s what a group of girls asked me as I crouched down next to this bike. I got the shot though!
The bus stop on the Mardyke Parade outside the old Erinville Hospital is on a bus lane, just outside a school. Every single school morning the bus lane is jammed with cars dropping children off.
A yellow BMW Mini parked on the Washington Street a while back. It sure has room in that parking space doesn’t it?
Finbarr House is situated right next to University College Cork (UCC) on the Western Road.
What’s strange is that it is a rundown building in the perfect location for renting to students: right in front of the University. Who knew there was an Irish property owner who didn’t want to make a few Euro on the side?
On the way to the Automattic beach houses last night we drove along the famous road that featured in Basic Instinct. I opened the window on Toni’s car and took a few photos of the sunset. I hoped for it to happen, but I was very lucky that the sun was blocked out by the signpost.
What are we doing on day one? Robert Hoekman, Jr is talking to us about "Designing the obvious" and expanding on his talk from the first day at WordCamp. The talk is going great, and generating lots of chatter and ideas!
A King Charles Spaniel with his owner in Paul Street, Cork a few months ago. I don’t like seeing dogs in the city because it’s so stressful for them but it was really quiet. Little fella looks worried though doesn’t he?
Here we are once again, blogging live from WordCamp 2007 in San Francisco. There’s Matt setting up the projector screen, Barry sorting through some notes and Michael Adams in the baseball cap. Check out my WordCamp 2007 set on Flickr for more photos from the weekend.
