First, let me say that XML Summer School was great fun.Full disclosure: I was invited to speak and the organizers paid my travel expenses.. It's wonderfully small; I'm not sure I met every single participant, but I certainly could have. Not surprisingly, I know most of the instructors (and count them among my friends), the organizers and staff did a great job, the social events were delightful, and the participants were keen, excited, and full of interesting questions. It's been a long time since I got to talk to so many “real users” and I always enjoy that.
I probably have a few too many shots of the Radclife Camera.
On my way out of town, I heard a news report say that the Thames had crested. I hope that's true. The flooding didn't seriously impact the conference, but it was clearly a disaster for some of the surrounding communities (both in the immediate vicinity of Oxford and farther afield). Here's hoping for a long, dry, sunny spell.
