    Thought it might be worth having a thread on this, since even if you were there it's often easy to miss cool stuff that gets discussed.

    So obviously there was Tim's great promotional brochure for Site Doctor

    Then there was definitely some discussion of GIT

    And of course Geek in the Park and Future of Web Design got a mention.

    Then my memory fails...

    I spent quite a lot of time picking Ross' brains on direct backup solutions to S3, and the surprising revelation while working on a current client project with a 'focus group' - the vast majority of the people opening HTML emails never knew the 'Click here to view images/in your broswer' links were there.

    By making it 30px high, red and bold, we solved the problem with complete success - rather surprising, even if not overly elegant. Most people before had either just deleted the email, or clicked on the space where the image was meant to be (so an alternative solution is to link the images to a web based version).

    There was also a discussion about throwing cats out of windows, however I'm unsure how much the content generated in that conversation will be included in Web 3.0.
    I can't remember how the cat thing concluded. I do remember talk of strapping buttered bread to a cats back will result in lots of spinning or something like that : D

    I spent most of my time trying to remember everyone's names. My memory is terrible so I apologise if I don't recall your name at the next one, I'll get there eventually : )
