Last nights Webstock Mini went really well. I’ve read Rod Drury’s blog for a few months now and it was great to see him speak. He presented his latest baby, xero, and discussed the process used to develop the interaction design. It’s something that I’d like to do more of, but alas budgets don’t often allow time for much of this.
Peter Gutmann spoke next about the Copyright Amendment Bill. He demonstated pretty clearly that the bill was probably more for the protection of corporate IP than cultural or personal treasures. I know at least one attendee who will be making a submission based on his talk. If anyone reads this in time you can make a submission here or find more information at Stephen Marshall’s site. You’ll have to be quick though, as submissions close this Friday the 9th.
We finished up with a 10*2 session (ten speakers with two minutes each) which went really well, although the MC-ing was a little dodgy… =)
As usual, it was great to meet and catch up with people and leave feeling inspired about the industry.
