Open Source CMS Summit 2006 photos

I just processed and uploaded a number of photos that I shot at the Open Source CMS Summit, MooseCamp and Northern Voice. Take a look at the photo gallery to get to know some of the faces behind Drupal.

Northern Voice 2006 conference

Met a bunch of interesting (non-Drupal) people at the Northern Voice conference. Here is a selection of them:
Robert scoble

Robert Scoble, Microsoft employee, technical evangelist and blogger extraordinaire. We talked 'Drupal' with him which I'm sure he will be pitching to Bill Gates. ;-)

Tim bray

Tim Bray, Sun Microsystems employee, W3C member and co-inventor of XML. Tim made Sun Microsystems donate a Sun Fire V20z server to the Drupal project. I finally got to say "thank you" in person.

Matt mullenweg

Matt Mullenweg, lead developer of WordPress and co-founder of Automattic, the company behind WordPress.com and Akismet. We talked about web technologies and open source development on more than one occasion this week. Really nice guy to hang out with!

Yoga for geeks

I attended my first-ever yoga class at the Open Source CMS Summit here in Vancouver. Sarah Pullman organized a "Yoga for Geeks" class. Sarah, a Drupal user herself, showed us some simple exercises that (admittedly somewhat to my surprise) turned out to reveal and relieve quite a bit of muscle tension amongst us Drupal developers. Highly recommended and a must-have session on future Drupal conferences.

Vancouver night skiing

Night skiing

After day 2 of the Open Source CMS Summit, some of us went night skiing on Cypress Moutain, located only 30 minutes from downtown Vancouver (Canada). From the downhill runs, you have a spectacular view on the city.
