Two Successes! WPD2 and WoWiPAD1 [en]

[fr] Aussi bien le Website Pro Day 2 (WPD2) que le WoWiPAD1 (World Wide Paperwork and Administrivia Day, ou bien "Journée Paperasse" de son petit nom) ont rencontré un franc succès.

Du coup, on remet ça. WPD 3 (sur Lausanne, mais vous pouvez saisir la balle au bond et organiser des événements-frères ailleurs) le 16 janvier, et WoWiPAD2 dès que quelqu'un d'intéressé m'aura contacté pour fixer une date.

Je trouve aussi qu'une journée pour bloguer à 100% (finir les brouillons, écrire ces billets auxquels on pense depuis des lustres mais y'a toujours plus urgent à faire) serait pas mal, ainsi qu'un pour mettre à jour ses uploads de photos sur Flickr... (quoi? vous êtes à jour? zou!)

I’ll be brief, because I’m running around a bit like a headless chicken these days with tons of different things to do, and the blog gets neglected. So, here’s a short article, rather than no long article (because that’s what tends to happen).

Both [WPD2 and WoWiPAD1](http://climbtothestars.org/archives/2007/12/26/wowipad1-and-wpd2-news/) were a great success. I really think that gathering people together towards a common goal on a given day is a really good idea — especially for people working from home, or freelancers.

The Lausanne branch of the Website Pro Day initiative have already decided that we needed a WPD3. The date that has been chosen is January 16th. Make a note of it now! I’ll create a Facebook event shortly.

WoWiPAD1 (that Suw wants to rename the “Administrivia Day” because she doesn’t like the ugly acronym… who can blame her?) saw participants joining us from all over the place, including [Ton and Elmine from the Netherlands](http://www.zylstra.org/blog/archives/2008/01/world_wide_pape.html) and even [Stowe Boyd from San Francisco](http://www.stoweboyd.com/message/2008/01/world-wide-pape.html). We posted updates to [the event wall](http://www.facebook.com/wall.php?id=7437407283), [Twitter](http://hashtags.org/tag/wowipad/) (most of them private, unfortunately), and [Seesmic](http://seesmic.com). I’ve collected [links to related Seesmic videos](http://www.facebook.com/posted.php?id=7437407283) in the event links.

Personally, I’m ready for WoWiPAD2. If you are too, ping me and we’ll choose a date (better to be at least two people to set a date).

I’m also ready for “Write All Those Blog Posts Already Day” (100% blogging, a chance to finish drafts and catch up on old post ideas!) as well as “Digging Through That Flickr Backlog Day” to upload those photos you took six months ago and still haven’t seen the light of day. Ping me if you’re interested, and we’ll make them happen!
