After many weeks to possibly months of knowing about it, I broke down yesterday morning and decided to crash Barcamp Mobile. A few of my local Twitter friends were actually putting it on and quite a few more were attending. However, since it's a "user-led conference" (meaning that the attendees are actually the speakers and presenters) I was freaking out about going.
Shortly after breakfast, the urge to go was overwhelming. So I checked with a few friends who were there to see if it was okay for me to just show up, and did. It was a super relaxed atmosphere and there were a variety of topics being discussed and presented. While some topics were geek/tech related, others were just generally interesting (like "How to Fry Anything" and "Genealogy.") All in all, it was a pretty good time. I might even come up with a presentation for next year. . .maybe.
Since I only attended the afternoon sessions and wasn't available for either of the dinners, my Barcamp experience wasn't really complete. I hear they had a lot of fun. There are barcamps all over the country, just do a search for one in your local area and you may be pleasantly surprised to find one near you. (If any of you who attended want to add anything to this, please let me know or leave additional info in the comments.)
While I should have gotten some macro shots of the fried mini Reese's, kool-aid, and Oreos; I was too busy consuming them to worry with my camera and greasy fingers!
Instead, let me show off the pretty colors that the leaves on my Crepe Myrtle have turned.
We don't get too many pretty leaves in Autumn down here. Most of the trees just stay green or instantly turn brown. So, the variety of colors right outside my front door makes me smile a little.

Before I go, let me share some more pretty autumn hues with you.
