it was a grand meetup…

meetup2014

Once a year Automattic calls an all hands meeting. A meetup. It lasts one full calendar week from arrival to departure and it is many things to many people.

The one word standing out in my mind as I look back at the week I had is overwhelming.

o·ver·whelm·ing
ˌōvərˈ(h)welmiNG/
adjective
  1. very great in amount.
    “he was elected president by an overwhelming majority”
    synonyms: very large, enormous, immense, inordinate, massive, huge More

    • (especially of an emotion) very strong.
      “an overwhelming feeling of gratitude”

There was so much to take in, so many people to seek out, reacquaint with, and meet for the very first time. We worked, we played, we ate, we drank, we slept very little. We tried to make the world a better place, and if you think that’s me being dramatic you don’t know the people I have the honor of working with. I’m still absorbing the week I spent in Park City with the rest of my company. The projects and activities, conversations and laughs, meals and late nights are still sinking in. But while I’m starting to making sense of it all and settling back into my daily life at home here’s a look back at a few of the moments I was able to catch – there were so many I was too busy reveling in to capture. And now I sleep…

You made it all the way through to the end? Does it look like fun? Did I mention we’re hiring?
