It was one of the greatest conference I've ever had. A very good accomodation, a very good hospitality from Toronto.pm folks, a very good talks and speakers.
One thing I feel very comfortable is, even though I didn't give any talk on this conference, everytime I talk to someone, they can recognize me by my name plate saying "Oh, you're miyagawa! I'm using your module, thanks!" or something like that. This is very exciting.
Well, here's a random list of people I met in this YAPC: Jesse Vincent (RT), Brian Ingerson (evil Ingy), Autrijus Tang (Pugs), Mark Fowler (Fotango / Perl Advent Calendar), Josh McAdams (Perlcast guy), Abigail, Dave Rolsky (DateTime / SocialText), Chris Dent (Kwiki / SocialText), Andy Lester (WWW::Mechanize), Casey West (Email:: project), Perrin Harkins (Class::DBI and MVC stuff), Geoffrey Young (mod_perl2), Matt Sergeant (AxKit, qpsmtpd), Meng Weng Wong (SPF) and a lot of people, by any reason I cannot remeber the name of. Oh, and Larry Wall.
On Sunday evening (JST), I'm off to Canada for YAPC::NA. On Thursday I'll be flying to San Francisco, staying there for 2 months for a (hopefully) very productive development at Six Apart heardquarter.
Now I'm searching for some books to read on the plane for 13 hours ...
As an employee (and engineer) of Six Apart, I restarted photologging with TypePad as Life. I've been using Flickr as a photo storage area. Flickr is pretty slick in its upload interface and communication, along with tagging. However, having pictures on TypePad, especially with Mixed Media Template makes me comfortable like I have my pics on my weblog.
So now I created a small script to fotolog Flickr's photo in a Mixed Media Template friendly way, using Nokia Lifeblog protocol. Small piece of code to loosely couple Flickr's REST API and TypePad Atom Protocol. Sweet.
