    Simon your talk was awesome, really well done. A bunch of good tips I hadn't really thought of before but will surely keep in mind!

    I enjoyed meeting everyone and the talk. I will attend meetings based on the talk because I can see that sometimes you will all be talking what I consider a foreign language:) Thanks for being so welcoming!

    I forgot which day I was driving to Virginia to visit my brother - it's Thursday not Friday, I won't be able to make it. :( This is something that I really needed to see too. Poop.

    Anyhow... Is there any plans to have lightning talks for WordCamp? Never been to a WordCamp so I'm not entirely sure how they're run/setup.

      I'd be open to lightning talks!
