It wasn't just the books, which were fabulous. Or the venue, which was superb, showing the best of what New York is all about. It was the intangible vibe thing that was what I'll remember. Print-on-demand technology along with cool software and inspired marketing has created a community of folks that have unleashed their creativity and admiration for one another that just could not have existed before Blurb (shameless plug).
We had attendees from around the world, many of whom came to New York specifically to attend our event, which really drove home the scope of what we have created. Maybe all those folks up at the UN this week should get together and make a book? Couldn't hurt.
