Initial Reaction to The Last HOPE

Over the last four days I've probably spent over 50 hours in a conference hall at the Hotel Pennsylvania.  If there's one thing I've learned form the experience, it's this:  Hackers are cool. Like, seriously cool people.

So for all of you who took my business card and are reading this right now - thanks for all your support and excitement and insightful ideas.  Your input is definitely going to change the future of the Wiremap.

I've got one last favor to ask.  If any of you post photos or videos or articles or interviews or whatever, I'd love it if you could drop me an email to let me know.  It's third person material like this that helps bring the Wiremap to other events.  I plan on compiling all the links on a big list at,

One of the highlights that many of you didn't get a chance to see was when a coder named Max (don't know his handle or last name) decided to build a new program for the Wiremap.  He thought about it for a night, came back, and within two hours whipped up a beautiful and captivating ripple effect.  I took some video and will be posting it in the next coupla days.

I'm in the process of setting up a mailing list, also.  I promise I'll have a link for that on my blog within a week.

See you at The Next HOPE.
