An abundance of great events lately

I didn't get to stay as long as I would have liked at this weekend's MindCamp, but the five hours I spent there were really great. Some of the best networking I've seen (employees from Amazon, Boeing, Microsoft, along with many others, all mixing together and having fun — and the sessions that I attended were inspiring and interesting). The Technorati results from MindCamp show that it was a huge success.

But, the high water mark in my mind was the Maker Faire. This is a different kind of event from MindCamp. Sort of a "Burning Man Lite." The On10 folks were there with their camcorder and have an interesting report that shows you some of the interesting things you would have seen there (Laura Foy with a flamethrower is a little too hot for me, though).
