I have been looking forward to this week for some time, and I haven't been let down by the conference. It's been extremely inspiring to be around so many peers and to see what everyone else is working on.
While in the Expo Hall I spoke with lots of vendors including iStockPhoto (who liked me enough to pull a t-shirt out from under the table), VitalStream, and WowzaTV.
I spoke at great lengths with Charlie from Wowza about their upcoming services, including BlogCheese (http://www.blogcheese.com) and SideFlicks (http://www.sideflicks.com). I've actually installed SideFlicks on my blog, to the right in the sidebar. As soon as I get this blog completely up and running, I'll write a review of the service.
The book signing with Brenden Dawes was great mainly because I got to get into more detail with him about his presentation. He is so inspiring, and such a nice guy. He'll chat it up with you all day -- you'd never know he runs a company, creates amazing experimental art, and just came out with an amazing book (which I bought and he was kind enough to sign).
On that note, I'll end this post with a quote Brenden shared:
"They who dream by day are congizant of many things which escape those who dream by night." - Edgar Allan Poe
