WordCamp San Francisco has been announced to be held on May 30th, 2009 and I’m jealous of all those who are attending this WordCamp! WordCamp SF is the original WordCamp as it is organized by the creators of WordPress. You can guess the value of this event if you’ll get to know the speakers -

Matt Mullenweg, Matt Cutts, Tim Ferriss, Andy Peatling, Chris Pirillo, John Lilly and who not! You’ll fall in love with the list of attendees. Won’t you get jealous if you are even an inch closer to WordPress?

At WordCamp India 2009, I met with lots of people and many of them did something unique that was setting them apart from the crowd. In the last post about WordCamp India, you would have noticed the Tattoo guy – Ankur Banerjee (who conducted a very cool quiz too). I also met with team technospot i.e. Ashish Mohta and Manav Mishra, they were wearing Technospot.net branded t-shirts and same was the case of Ankit of Instablogs (who inspired me to order a hoodie with Blog Design Studio logo on it).

All these examples on the top were of branding, where Ankur managed to brand himself as “the tatoo guy” and was easily able to draw Matt’s attention and then the team “technospot” & “instablogs” were good enough to draw people’s attention towards their work.

We all love brands and that is evident from not just by wearing Guccies, Omegas also by wearing brand logos on t-shirts, mugs, stickers and various merchandizes. Building brand is not simple and its one way of showing that we love the efforts that the guys have put in building that brand. I always wanted to wear a WordPress hoodie or t-shirt, however it wasn’t making sense to me that I buy a hoodie for 23 GBP from WordPress store, when it shouldn’t cost more than $ 12 in India itself.

It took us some time and efforts to organize the event and it just feels great to see that our efforts were appreciated by the whole community. It definitely felt nice that so many people joined and participated in the event in one way or the other and first time, it felt like that the WordPress community in India is also strong. We topped the list of Top Trends with #wci tag and that was definitely an achievement on its own and it was once competing strongly with #oscars.

WordCamp India 2009 is just 2 days away. Today, I had a great opportunity to meet Om Malik and Matt Mullenweg. I have to say that both the guys are pretty cool. Om shared his memories of India and was completely amazed at the amount of changes Delhi has seen all these years and Matt on the other hand was trying to pull Om’s leg. No wonder! They are good friends. We all know that how Matt loves photography and the moment me and Sameer entered the room, we were greeted with three quick pic shots.
