Wordcamp 2008 San Francisco at UCSF Mission Bay Campus

Although I tend to like keeping my Saturdays for walking up to the Ferry Building’s farmer’s market and just generally wandering around our beautiful city enjoying street musicians, I spent today at school. More specifically, I joined other folks who either use or are interested in the blogging software called WordPress at the UCSF Mission Bay Conference Center.

It was nice to meet Eric from Transbay Blog at the gathering as well as see some other familiar faces from last year’s WordCamp that happened over at the Swedish Hall (above Cafe du Nord).

If you happen to have a curiosity about what goes on at these “Wordcamps” that would bring 400 folks from around the globe to San Francisco to wake up at 8am on a Saturday, there’s a terrific summary of the day’s user-oriented presentations online already (it is a blogger conference after all).

As an aside, it is totally amazing to see the changes at Mission Bay. The Mission Bay golf range is all but a memory, save a trailer or two still standing, and many old warehouses are disappearing to make way for additional UCSF or biotech buildings. I’m a big fan of higher learning campuses – just a really cool energy around such centers of knowledge. The house boats sitting on Mission Creek are looking more and more out of place, but I assume they’ll be there until they sink.
