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.
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.
