Ramblings – 5-02-09 – The CMS Expo in Chicago
About 5 minutes back from Chicago and am I taking a nap? No. I’m back on the site. What am I, crazy?
What a great time with Andy McCaskey and Kara Karsten putting together 2-3 days worth of content. Lots of video uploaded and produced.
Also learned a lot about CMS systems. Most people there were either Drupal or Joomla shops, with a couple Plone and Alfresco speakers. Still, there was a lot of content to go around. Met some real influential CMS experts.
There was a Joomla vs. Drupal theme going, though. They even wrote songs about it. I posted them both up – not great quality, so be forewarned.
Andy had the video covered. We had a great setup to interview. On the second day we had the rhythm of the system and were pumping out videos on ustream. Andy Brown, cameraman from CES, showed up to help out. I did mostly backchannel stuff and some schmoozing.
On Saturday, I decided to take a small excursion to Milwaukee for Photocamp. I have been hearing about this place called “Bucketworks” and was interested to not only catch a small part of the conference, but also to get a lay of the land. It was a pretty big place – I was impressed with how they had things set up.
Not much else to talk about. Everything was about this Expo. Now I am off to play some music…
