WordCamp NYC 2009

We are going to host and sponsor another WordCamp, once again at Sun's NYC office. The date is October 24, 2009, the place is 101 Park Avenue, and the details are being worked out. Last year we had Matt Mullenweg as a keynote, and some spectacular speakers covering everything from building a personal brand to writing code. Where else do PHP, MySQL and HTML hackers congregate with budding journalists, photographers and other micro voices? Video from previous WordCamps is now part of WordPress.tv, a great way to fill the 9 months it's going to take to gestate our next show.

Early shout out to the GSE Divas for their continued support and efforts in making these happen.

Word Camp NY

WordCamp NY is now in full-bore {planning, scheduling, registration} mode. I'm providing local support in terms of Sun office space and some logistics, and I'm looking forward to hearing about everything from CMS to spam reduction. Thanks to the GSE Communications Divas for working the details (and using "hygroscopic" in a sentence!)

Top question I'm asked when I mention this: What does WordPress have to do with Sun? Primary: WordPress is written in PHP and uses mySQL as a content and metadata storage engine. Every WordPress author is indirectly a Sun product consumer. Secondary: Wordcamp is about blogging style and structure, and that's directly aligned with the culture of transparency and public discourse that we've been living for several years.
