Richard’s Excellent US Adventure; And Thanks Sponsors

it’s been another great trip to the USA! I’ve visited San Francisco (for Web 2.0
Expo), Las Vegas for MIX (courtesy of Microsoft New Zealand) and finally a
couple of days in Los Angeles (just to see the sights!). Tonight I head back to
New Zealand, getting set for full-time blogging again on Monday. As well as
catching up with all the news and emails on Monday – both of which I am
hopelessly behind in, due to travel – I have changes to the Read/WriteWeb site
and business that I’m itching to implement! 

Funny how every time I visit Silicon Valley, I find it hard to blog. Too many
distractions and the usual work routine goes out the window. But on this trip, I
was fortunate to have Josh
guest edit Read/WriteWeb last week – allowing me to have an actual
holiday (gasp! yes one of those things where you don’t do any work…I’d
forgotten the concept until last week). In addition to his own excellent posts,
Josh did a great job doing the behind-the-scenes editing. So a big thanks to
Josh for running the R/WW ship while I was on a boat to Alcatraz (see pic on the
right)! Also of
course thanks to the other R/WW writers for contributing and to our readers for
the thoughtful discussions in the comments and by trackback.

Also while I’m thanking people, I want to mention Read/WriteWeb’s sponsors:

Wild Apricot

website management for non-profits, clubs and associations.

discovered they have a lot of great new productivity apps coming soon.

provider of communication software for online communities. I met them too at
Expo – expect more integration with AOL properties soon.
