Skip to: Thoughts From Eric


Posting has been very sparse of late, and will likely continue in that vein for some time.  We just this week held An Event Apart NYC 2006, and it was a really great time.  The two-day format let us not only have more content, but also more time for interaction, which was great.  We’ll definitely be using what we learned in New York as we move forward to Seattle and beyond.  And can I get a round of applause for our wonderful caterer, amazing speakers, and even more amazing audience?  There was so much great conversation with the attendees that Jeffrey and I barely had time to speak with one another.

For those interested in the Seattle show, we should have more information in the coming weeks, but for now let’s just summarize it as the very best parts of the NYC show, condensed to a single day, with an all-new and thoroughly excellent guest speaker.  Sound good to you?  It sure does to me.

I’ve been working on an update to the Definitive Guide and a beginner-level book for another publisher—more details to come soon.  Okay, I know I just said that about AEA Seattle.  Sorry.

And then there’s the evolution of a fairly popular personal project into something substantially less bottlenecked, thanks to a great deal of help from a professional acquaintance, which should happen in the next few days.  Details should be— well, you know.  Third verse, same as the first.

I don’t think I have any more semi-secret activity to half-reveal, but if I manage to think of anything else, I’ll post some details when I can.

Ah ha ha.

    The latter doesn’t have anything to do with Snook’s little project, does it?

    Yes! AEA NYC was really amazing! The interaction with the community was just as important as the in solid knowledge and advice that was recieved from Eric, Zeldman, and the gang.
    Eric’s talks really helped to breakdown a lot of myths about CSS. I cant wait to read about it in the new edition of “The Definitive Guide”!

    I’m not directly talking about S5key, no, but indirectly I am talking about it and all the other enhancements that people have made.

    Jeff: you can get it here on meyerweb, or head over to to participate (see my subsequent blog entry for more details). The latter will quickly become more advanced, and the former will eventually go away.
