@media07 | June 9, 2007
I’ve just come back from another incredibly enjoyable @media conference. This year had a very design oriented feel and my highlights included talks by Jason Santa Maria, Mark Bolton and Jon Hicks. However the best part of @media for me is always the social angle. It’s an opportunity to hang out with friends from around the world that I only get to see on occasion. People like Dan Cederholm and Joe Clark. It’s also a chance to hang out with London locals like the lovely Hannah Gordon and Mike “The Dude” Stenhouse. Mike was incidentally sporting the best porno moustache I’ve seen in quite some time. Move over Stewart Colville, a new sheriff is in town.
Other people I enjoyed hanging out with included the elusive Simon Collison, the enigmatic Mark Bolton, the animated Simon Willison, and the Internets Drew Mclellan. I also got to meet few new faces including Peter from the CSS3 website, and Laura, who set up the amazingly successful Bristol SkillSwap. Respect.
I was pleased to see that the idea of CSS2.2 is gaining some traction. Hakon Lie mentioned it in his talk again, and it also came up in the Q&A. It’s a shame I didn’t have chance to speak about it at the conference, but I hope there will be other speaking opportunities in the future. In the meantime, I’ll be talking about the idea in more depth on this site soon.
