I forgot to mention that the folks at AOL interviewed me at the summit and you can get the podcast of it at iTunes.
I talk about the Yahoo! Network Map that we had in the poster sessions and the Yahoo! Pattern Library that we started rolling out last month.
I haven't listened to it yet, but hopefully I come across sounding like I know what I am talking about.

Recovering from the Summit
All my pics are processed and posted to my flickr account. Rather than blogging the conference specifically, I decided to survey with my camera and will be writing brief impressions/summaries for the Boxes and Arrows coverage.
This was the best summit I have attended and it was my 6th. For the first time, I wasn't presenting, I wasn't coordinating coverage for Boxes and Arrows. I went out every night. I met lots of new people. I reconnected with lots of old friends. I learned a bunch of new stuff in sessions and in between sessions. And I learned to play poker!
Next year - it's Vegas, baby. See you there.

eTech this week
Bill Scott - who works with me at Yahoo! on the Pattern Library inititatives - represented Yahoo! at eTech this week and gave the Yahoo! keynote.
From what I hear, he gave a great talk that really drove home why we opened up our libraries.
His slides and thoughts are available on his blog.

I will be attending the IA Summit at the end of this month - this will be my 5th one. BranchLogic and my team at Yahoo! collaborated on a project last year that will be presented in the Poster sessions.
I am looking forward to catching up with folks and for the first time in 4 years, not coordinating coverage for Boxes and Arrows.
Look me up and let's get a drink.
