Henry did a grand job of evangelising. I only caught bits of webid
sessions, most dev work seemed to be about scoping: what should be the
MUSTs/SHOULDs in the spec, which use cases are reasonable to consider,
edge cases etc.

There are vids of the talks here:

some blogging:

for me -

1. many of the folks most active in the Federated Social Web space
(e.g. Diaspora) were basically unaware of related Semantic Web/Linked
Data efforts

2. WebID is hard to explain in one sitting - only a certain proportion
got the idea right away, a large proportion of those people couldn't
believe it Just Works

3. A lot of people are interested

(and intense, yes - I still haven't quite recovered and wasn't even presenting)
