This was my first experience as a conference organizer. It was fun. It was scary. It was too much work. Don't know if I'll do it again, but I certainly learned a lot.

I met a lot of people, almost all for the first time face-to-face. I listened to a lot of amazing talks. I missed too many talks because of the parallel tracks 🙁

Didn't connect with Webkit guys the way I would have liked, but did have some good meals with Opera and Mozilla folk. Great times. Wish there had been more time for shmoozing and geeking out.

I came away feeling pretty good about Microsoft and SVG. I felt even better about Google and SVG. Brad really came through for us in a lot of ways.

Apple who?

I also felt pretty good about the reception to some of my pet projects that I'm working on as part of my SVG Interest Group efforts: Scour and SVG-edit. Both of which were mentioned in several other talks before I even got a chance to talk about them. Hoping to have lots of progress to talk about next year...
