We returned from XOXO. Incredible to see all the amazing projects in real life, and even more incredible to meet so many creative people. If you missed out on the activities, Anil Dash has you covered with an extremely thorough run down of everything that went down at the festival. If that's not enough, well, you'll have to wait until next year! Or, at least wait until the conference videos hit the web.
Design Milk linked up with the folks behind Urbio and installed the hanging system in their office. According to the title of the piece, it is the easiest thing writer Jamie Deringer has ever done, which is saying a lot considering Jamie has probably done a few things in her life.
While some were busy setting up organizers or mingling with like-minded creators, others were likely stuck in a Steam wormhole thanks to FTL, aka Faster Than Light, which 9,000+ backers agree is awesome. If you want to watch your weekend vanish before your eyes, check it out. If you are trying to harvest the tomatoes from your garden this weekend, best to incept the concept of FTL and Steam out of your mind.
And lastly, couldn't go into the weekend without mentioning that over 24,000 backers helped Amanda Palmer's Theatre is Evil album debuted at #10 on the Billboard charts this week, a first for Kickstarter, and an amazing feat for an album produced by the fans. If your one of those 24,000+ people, give yourself a pat on the back!
