Pythian OOW09 Diaries: Bloggers Meetup

I’m quite late to blog about it now but the OOW09 Bloggers Meetup was a success. I should say thanks to the OTN for sponsoring the bar tab as well as to HP for sponsoring a nice HP laptop as a prize.

The original location was a smaller area with a larger outdoor balcony but due to the weather concerns, it was moved completely indoor in the bigger banquet style room and it worked extremely well. We had more than 50 people showed up — probably around 70+ — as 51 t-shirts I printed for that occasion has completely gone.

The idea with t-shirt is to collect signatures from bloggers you meet and talk to. The most valuable result is that you get totally cool and unique t-shirt that you will want to wear after day (or maybe not wear and put it under the glad instead of the painting on the wall and demonstrate in your living room). The least all bloggers are going to do is to post a photo of their t-shirts — make sure you leave some feedback later.

Here is mine:

Doug Burns did a way better job than me with his review of the event.

Visitors of the bloggers meetup as well as you, fellow readers of this blog, have unique preview opportunity for the new Pythian logo and slogan if you keep your eyes open:

Btw, it’s Justin Kestelyn who is buying beer on the photo above. DSC_2790 DSC_2803

As I’m moving from Australia back to Canada, this photo with fellow Aussie Oracle ACE Directors is one of the most valuable for me as I’ve had fantastic time down there.


You can find more photos in Bloggers Meetup Flickr tag.

So thanks all the bloggers for coming and sponsors for sponsoring! If you were on that meetup – make sure you blog about it, post you photos and publish the photo on *your* t-shirt to the community (yeah, you can take it off the wall this one time).
