Future of Web Apps: Day 1

Had a pretty good time at Day 1 of the Future of Web Apps conference today. The presentations by Dick Hardt, Tom Coates, and Tantek Çelik were the best. The Yahoo! ZoneTag talk was pretty cool, but could have been shown better, maybe with an ELMO. The Google Calendar talk was pretty good, but the presentation ran a bit and didn’t do the product justice.

Oh, and the WiFi was horrible, basically useless. I don’t think it’s the workshop organizers’ fault (they probably spent a bundle on it), but the WiFi provider seriously dropped the ball on this one. Literally every single person attending has a laptop, so it shouldn’t be hard to do the math and bring enough bandwidth.
