The third annual Reno-Tahoe WordCamp was Saturday inside the Joe Crowley Student Union at the University of Nevada, Reno. WordCamp—for those uninitiated—is not a gathering of linguists and logophiles. It is instead—and just as nerdy—a gathering of WordPress enthusiast. WordPress of course being the uber-trendy, mostly awesome, open source web software created by Matt Mullenweg used by bloggers, programmers, designers and Chelsea Otakan.

Fun fact about this year's Camp: I had my wisdom teeth removed Thursday afternoon. As a result, I was high as a kite photographing Saturday's festivities. So forgive me if we a) met and I don't remember you, b) I had drool on my chin, or c) the photos are a little fuzzy.

WordCamp is a volunteer run event. With that in mind, big thanks to Chelsea and Colin Loretz of Reno Collective, the speakers and sponsors.

Also, thanks to Mike Henderson, speaker videos should be posted soon. When they are, be sure to check out Ed Adkins' talk on "WordPress Black Holes," Kevin Jones' illustrated examination of Drupal and WordPress and which is better for your website, and Mike Pomranz on "How to handle British hecklers."

Enjoy the photos. See you all next year!
