When I was first asked by Juned if I can consider giving a talk for Wordcamp, I replied with “What the hell is that?” I misheard “world” for “word” and thought it was some big gathering (camping- with bonfire and shit like that) of people in an open field to protest global warming or poverty.
I later became unstupid when he explained that it’s a huge wordpress event for its users, with informative talks and fun games and shiny prizes. And who doesn’t like shiny prizes? So I said, sure, without even knowing what my topic would be. I mean, what if they had asked me to talk about CSS or plug-ins or other related stuff, what do you think would happen to me?
Fast forward to yesterday, September 6.
I went to CSB where the event was held, ready with my presentation about Video Blogging. I haven’t really done that much Funny+Sexy vlogs but the topic is something close to my heart because uhhh… I do videos for a living.
So I saw a lot of friends there, some new faces but overall, ’twas a nice crowd. I was impressed by the set-up and the volunteers were very helpful (here’s a shout-out to Vince who helped me in my preparation). After the whole introduction, we were asked to go to the rooms of our chosen speakers. Of course, we went to Jayvee‘s at room 409. All 12 or so of us have been waiting there for about 15 minutes already when we were informed that we were at the wrong room. BLOOPER NUMBER 1. LOLZ.
