I'm back home drying out after the treacherous conditions at Audio, which hosted the after-party for dConstruct 2008. Today's event was the first dConstruct I've attended and I had a great time. I spent the morning helping staff the registration desk, which was a very pleasant task thanks to the team I was working in.
During the afternoon I was in the auditorium watching the talks. I've been a little jaded about the web lately. Sitting through the four afternoon sessions I felt an excitement I've not felt in some time. Rather than make me feel sceptical, the ideas, particularly around the 'social internetwork', were fascinating. I filled many notebook pages during the talks so it will probably be next week before I get around to summarising my thoughts.
dConstruct was also a very friendly conference. I've been to some tech events that felt cliquey but everyone I encountered today was chatty. Congratulations to Sophie for putting on a great day.
