Ok, atlast i made it to the BarCamp. After working for close to 36 hours, thanks to the hack day at Yahoo, the only thing I wanted to do was to sleep. But, I was woken up in the morning by a couple of phone calls. So atlast, I made to the Yahoo, EGL facility, where the BarCamp is on.
By the time, I reached here lunch was on. So everyone was just hanging around. Met a whole lot of old faces and a few names known through IRC / LJ.
Then attended the talk on "The Art of Scaling" by Devdas and Vinayak. Currently there is a good discussion going where Nishant and Jace are presenting "Lessons in Community Management from Livejournal Bangalore".
