It’s a sad day, but also a day to rejoice! WordCamp NYC 2009 is officially over and I just wanted it to continue all week. But if that was the case, registration would be like $500. Two days was good enough.

The second day was pretty much in Mason Hall (for me at least). There was unconference sessions going on where we were in the main classroom complex yesterday. For those who want a listing can go here.

WordCamp NYC 2009: Day One

Posted by Shane

Today (or tonight since I am posting this at night) was the first/end of Day One of WordCamp NYC 2009. This was also my first ever WordCamp. I was really physic. I left my friend’s place on Roosevelt Island around 6:45am hitching the “F” line to 23rd and 6th Avenue.

Once I got off I was really confused on where I was because I was not used to being in that location. With the sun not out as well… it was really hard to determine the points of the compass. After finding someone else who was also looking for Baruch College on 23rd and Lex. After we got another set of directions, we were on our way. A few minutes later I arrived at the registration area for WordCamp NYC 2009!

Yes… a new way to follow me around, Twitter.

I signed up yesterday and gave it a whirl. Not bad since I been resisting it for a long time. I installed a BlackBerry application to allow me to tweet from my phone. Some people have their Twitter updates feed inside their’ WordPress blogs. At this moment I don’t plan on doing that since the blog would get crowded with short posts that are pointless other than this being a huge feed to keep track on what I post about. Who knows…

Anyway if you have Twitter and you want to follow me, go ahead and visit my Twitter page here. On the left hand side in the upper box (Site Tools) the direct link will always exist plus the link to the Twitter RSS feed as well.

*UPDATE* Twitter has fixed the picture uploading problem I have now have my profile icon activated. 😀

We read so much about the violence in Iraq that it almost seems moot to read or watch the news. However, there are those times when something that you care deeply about are making a difference for people in this world who don’t have much communication with the outside world.

WordPress, Twitter, and all of new media software for the internet will change all that.
