Tinderbox Weekend

We've got the network up, and finally found chairs for everybody; Tinderbox weekend is under way!

People from down the street, from the East coast, from Japan. Screen writers, librarians, psychologist, professors of English. Lots of Tinderbox expertise.

Elin Sjursen's information gardening exercise was a big hit; lots of excitement bursting out all over the room, as Tinderbox veterans discovered features they'd always overlooked. (A lot of people didn't know you could magnify the map view. Who knew?)

It was interesting to observe how many people preferred making agents to popping up the Find dialog -- even though Tinderbox's Find offers fast incremental search.

Update: Alwin Hawkins blogs the weekend.
