My Saturday morning trip started out with some taquitos from Whataburger and a bit of Twittering. (Ohh, yeah) Since I had never been to Bryan, TX I was very excited about exploring a new territory. We passed by tons of churches and unusual stone figurines on our drive over there and I think every time I peeled my attention away from my laptop, there was something to chuckle at. Anyway, once I stepped out of the car, I immediately felt like I was on a movie set. Everything was so cute and clean – including the perfectly paved streets. See for yourself:
The entire day was a lot of fun. Not only did I see tons of familiar faces, I had some great conversations with them. It seems as though when you’re in an environment that fosters creativity and free-thinking, like one at BarCamp that’s fun and laid back, you have the most meaningful conversations. Which is why personally, I love attending events like these.
Something I didn’t expect to happen was this…

…to come across a giant old-school laptop. Not sure about the others, but I felt like we were cavemen/cavewomen that discovered something amazing. Except we were just purely fascinated at how old it was. The keys on the keyboard made a plastic-y sound when you pressed it, there was a three inch port for something in the back (can’t tell ya what it is, but not a USB port for sure), and weighed more than my Chihuahua dog.
What do I think? BarCampTX was a great experience and I highly recommend attending them.
