We worked from noon till six Monday, and from 8:30 till the middle of Tuesday; a little over twenty people in the room. I got the Ape talking to a few and failed with a couple of others, but in those cases the problems were implementation glitches, not the protocol. Surprises? I saw a couple of servers that didn’t accept Atom entries, just various kinds of media objects. OK, I guess. Pleasant surprises: getting pretty well complete interoperation with (on almost the first try) Nikunj Mehta’s code and (after a bit of work) Kevin Beyer’s and James Snell’s. I’m running a few shots of the event just because I like taking pictures of people. I’ll write another piece drawing some technical conclusions.

These are all the pictures I was happy with; I particularly regret not having decent pictures of Nikunj Mehta and Lissa Dusseault (got one), and especially of having missed her adorable three-month-old.

Sounds fun ... but what happened to Lightroom?! You need to adjust the levels on those flat indoor pictures, mapping the highlights higher. And when you photograph a group of people in shadow standing in front of a parking lot in bright sunlight, shouldn't you be metering off the people, not the parking lot?
