WebVisions 2006 post mortem

I have been meaning to post a detailed follow-up for WebVisions 2006. It's been a busy week, as you can imagine; here is my brief summary. I got to meet a lot of cool people for the first time and hear a lot of great talks. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to attend all the talks I wanted to attend due to either limited seating capacity (yes, some rooms were packed to the gills) or taking care of my duties as a co-organizer of the event.

I did manage to hear a few presentations. Those were Mark Wyner's Building Better HTML Emails (PDF and Quicktime of slides), Bill DeRouchey's The History of the Button (PDF of slides), Garrett Dimon's Improving Front-End Architecture (slides to come), and of course Jared Spool's keynote The Dawning of the Age of Experience (slides to come).

I have posted most of my photos to Flickr. You can see all the photos from the event by searching for webvisions06, webvisions2006, or just webvisions.

Thanks to everyone who attended, presented, sponsored, exhibited, blogged, photographed, and linked the event.

Do you know how many people were there? The place was overflowing with people on Friday.

I am not sure, probably 600 or so. I haven't got a total end head count from Brad yet.
