A restaurateur convention. We even got a free lunch!

Last week I was in New York City for the Hackathon and Executive Summit. It was a chance to meet some “movers and shakers” in the Movable Type community and see some of the work others had done, especially in the big-business world.

The Hackathon was an informal gathering of ProNet members and Six Aparters; many of the people who write the plugins that everyone uses every day were there. (Byrne has published a list of who accomplished what. Good stuff!) The Executive Summit included several interesting presentations about blog and MT deployment and success stories.

Elise has posted some of the photos she took, too. Related: I tried to interview several people there when it seemed they had some downtime. I was really hoping to do many more than I did, but time went by too quickly. The first interview: Jesse and Chad.
