I'm not the only one.
Do you know who my current hero is? Jono Bacon. Even for you coders/developers, he's a hand you should shake. He gets community leaders together to think about their community and ways to help it to be better. He helps us to help you, and it's more important than I had realized. CLS was an amazing opportunity for me to listen to and discuss questions on the non-tech side, which helps me to be better at my job. My favorite session of the weekend was Dealing With Negative Feedback, proposed and moderated by Daniel Hinojosa, who is the new CM for SourceForge. We had A LOT to talk about, and through that one session (and many others), I met a group of engaging, fantastic brains, all bursting with ideas and questions of their own.
Next is the start of my second OSCON experience.
