dConstruct pass

dConstruct is all over for another year.

Highlights for me were the insanely personable Tom Coates and his talk, “Designing for a Web of Data” and Cameron Moll on “Good vs Great Design“. No real lowlights, other than that I wished Denise Wilton and George Oates had a bit of a Q&A at the end of their talk… actually, a bit more Q&A all round would have been nice. Oh, and free coffee during the day would have been cool too.

What I really enjoyed, though, was meeting (meatspace social networking?) a lot of lovely like-minded folk. What’s even better is I’ve come out feeling incredibly invigorated and excited about what I do for a living — which really is a superb and unexpected bonus!

And the beer was nice too.

Actually, I have another low: Because I’m feeling more excited I’m up at eleven thirty on a Sunday finishing off a draft for an antikewl redesign — when I really should be in bed!

    Really glad you liked the talk. I’m going to take an axe to it shortly and try and carve it up into a more reasonable form for Web 2.0 Expo, once (in my head) I’ve worked out what I didn’t like about it.

    Glad you enjoyed the conference. Couldn’t agree more about Mr Coates. Insanely personable!

    Oh, and I agree that free coffee would have been nice, but we were being charged £1.50 per serving as well, so it would have upped the ticket price for everybody.

    Tom: The pleasure was all mine. Looking forward to see what you guys have up your sleeves with Fire Eagle!

    Andy: The free beer more than made up for it. ;) Many thanks to you and the rest of the team for arranging this event once again. It was superb fun!
