By the time you read this post, I will be somewhere in Europe — either about to land in Frankfurt or already hanging around the city’s aging airport. I am on my way to India to spend a short week with my parents and also attend WordCamp India, a gathering of WordPress (see disclosure below) users in New Delhi.
I will be attending WordCamp with Matt Mullenweg, founder of Automattic and the guy who started the WordPress movement. We plan to get on stage together and talk about — what else? — blogging. Of course, we are not just going to be working; Matt and I are going to curry it up. (I’m also going to be photoblogging on my personal blog, if you’re interested.)
I am looking forward to the trip, though the 22-hour journey and the toll it takes on my body isn’t something to tweet about. I’d like to use it as an opportunity to actually slow down my pace and stay somewhat disconnected. So I plan to restrict my writing to one post a day, which I will be sending to the team back in San Francisco.
