My highlights of web 2.0

I've mentioned before that web 2.0 was outstanding, that there were many good speakers, interesting talks and interesting people. It was also a chance to catch up with old friends and make new one's.

To thank everyone who made this occasion so special for me, would end up with an enormous list - so I'm just going to mention a few key moments.

The most personal moments for me were the evenings spent with Jesse Robbins (the master of disaster!) and Allegra Searle Le-Bel, (dancer / choreographer / entrepreneur - that's so cool). Jesse's talk at web 2.0 was my favourite, and still makes me chuckle today. You had to be there to understand, but the 404 message for a non-existant bridge was blinding.

I also spent time with Blaine Cook (Twitter) and Christy Canida (Instructables) who both work in fields I find fascinating and are great company.

And finally, I spent a late evening talking about Genetics (and discovering how much I'd forgotten) with Jordan, a man who certainly knows his bees.
