They Liked Us, They Really, Really Liked Us

16 May ’06

mesh is over. My first impression? We’re extraordinarily lucky to have had the opportunity to work with so many smart, enthusiastic and generous people. And the feedback we’ve received has been a little overwhelming, actually. I’ve spoken to well over 100 people in the last 2 days who’ve approached me to congratulate us on the event and give us a big thumbs-up.

A lot of the thanks for that goes to other people, and we’ll round that up in a post soon. But it’s pretty satisfying to get this reaction – not least because it’s a validation of our original belief that mesh would be a positive experience for this community. That first evening, just over 9 weeks ago, we knew – we simply knew – that people in this community who shared our interests would come out and support mesh. And having people join us in that effort has been a profoundly satisfying experience.

So right now, the mesh crew thinks the world is a pretty fine place. And if you came to mesh, or supported us by speaking, or through your sponsorship, your encouragement, your advice, or your help (and this is a very long list), we’d like to sincerely thank you for your help. We’ve had a lot of fun and it’s been a real pleasure working with all of you.

Finally, thanks to my mesh partners, Mathew Ingram, Mark Evans, Stuart MacDonald and Mike McDerment. It was a great team.

Update: Mathew posts a synopsis that’s a veritable link-o-rama.
