Playing about with Storify for the first time as a way of shaping the post event report for Drupal Downunder. It claims to have an export to Drupal site feature (or tumblr, or wordpress, or posterous or mailchimp) but I couldn't get that to work. Instead - I've used the embed code. On balance, I'd say Storify is a pretty nifty web app.
This post is very long, mostly cos it has lots of pix, embedded vids of each of the the keynotes and is interspersed with tweets and other snippets about the conference. Hopefully, it gives a taste of the event and the fun that was had.
A couple of people have asked about the kinds of people likely to go to Drupal Downunder.
So we dug into the stats from DDU2011 and discovered that 71% of people registered on the site identified themselves as Developers.
We've very actively tried to expand the appeal of Drupal Downunder to attract the broader Drupal community too.

In 2007 we made the decision to switch to Drupal from our own collection of in-house LAMP based web content management modules and we've not looked back. Whilst we've been active members of the Australian Linux and Open Source community for over five years, we are still relatively recent immigrants to the Drupal community.
I've created a new identity for the drupal mob downunder to hang on our page at groups.drupal.org/australia
Inspired by the iconic work of May Gibbs, an Australian children's book author and illustrator, I bring you, the Aussie DrupalNuts.
We're also sponsoring DrupalDownunder - and I'm very much looking forward to it. I'm also wondering what kind of session I should submit to the call for proposals.
