We were a much smaller group this month–and we came in waves. I organized a meetup at 2h00 p.m. Anthony from themacmind.com couldn’t make the 2h00 (he’s got classes) so he organized one at 5h30. I stayed for both. The one and only Mr. Mullenweg was in Texas at the SxSW conference and is attending another meetup there.
Both Theo and Lori were new members and were very helpful to us non-techies. I found out–at the meetup–that two of my sites had been hij acked. Theo insisted he help fix it, even after I was a bit short because, the last thing I need is two of my sites to be down. Thank you Mr. Theo. He showed us how he was using WordPress on his sister’s (an amazing garden artist) site. If you have a moment Mr. Theo, can you send me the link?
Later, at the 5h30 wave, Andrew from brainflare.com arrived. I’m sure he was expecting a bit more action though. Same for Kevin from Tailrank. Next time guys, we’ll be better organized. I am feeling old lately. At this wave of the meetup, I definitely felt a generation gap. Over-aged and under-accomplished. Whatever, there is only one direction to go from here.
Andrew is an impressive 17-year old. He is the founder and brain behind Quizlet, a web application that helps people learn vocabulary. Kevin is the CEO and Founder of Tailrank. He’s thirty and Tailrank is his second company. Yep. I like the Bay Area. Technology is hot. People are energized and motivated. It’s catching.
