Last night Ray and I headed up to San Francisco for the MovableType 3.1 Preview gathering. It was a good chance to talk with some other MT fans and meet more of the Six Apart folks.

We all walked away with a 32MB USB memory stick that contains the [nearly?] latest 3.1 code. After a big of encouragement from the crowd, we got a quick demo of MT 3.1's new features. Anil got the equipment set up, Mena did the talking, and Ben drove the demo. The picture at the right is of Ben and Mena addressing the crowd before the demo started.

I spent a few minutes talking with Ben about MT 3 features, comment spam, and TypePad. It occurred to me then that TypePad is also in a very good position to help prevent comment spam.


A bit later, Mary suggested that some of us head over to LobbyCon (thanks Sean) at the W Hotel just about three blocks away. Though my name was on the LobbyCon Wiki, I had forgotten that it was last night. I think that I originally saw the date and became convinced I had something else going on that day, so I blocked it out of my memory.

The LobbyCon turnout was pretty good. It seemed that about half a dozen folks made it there after first attending the MT 3.1 gathering.
