The Web 2.0 Expo is in San Francisco this week and, although we aren't attending, we found out that Tim O'Reilly mentioned Engine Yard in his keynote speech on Wednesday. After the conference, several companies sponsored mixers in South Park and people started popping their heads in our door asking if we were hosting a party too.
"Why not?" we said. Half an hour later, Lance was setting out drinks and food, and more and more people were dropping by to say hello.
