I’ve been hanging in the city that never sleeps all weekend at a WordPress Wordcamp, trying to better understand the blogging world. I followed the blogger track but should have gone with the newbie track. Oh well, the energy from the wordpress community is all positive. Even though most of the technical stuff was a bit over my head, I was impressed with the general “giving” quality of everyone there.
Add to that the whole New York City thing and it makes me wonder if small town Wisconsin isn’t missing something. It’s amazing how efficiently this place runs. I was in the whole foods at Union Square with at least 1000 New Yorkers…I’m not stretching with that number either. There were about 50 check out lines…just for express check out. The cuing system was incredible…and the patience of people!!…WOW. I got around the city on the subway but whenever I’d come up onto the street, I’d have no sense of direction. No matter, there was always a New Yorker willing to send me the right way. I’m telling you, it’s our nature to be nice…no matter where we live. I love it here. It’s the biggest small town in the world.
