I'm attending the periodic one day "MiniMonsters" meeting in San Francisco today. Great discussion with some of the best infrastructure minds in the online (and offline) world about topics like scalability, CM, finding and hiring great technical talent, and business continuity.
I've been thinking about doing a longer post on the WebMonsters group. It's a fantastic professional organization that has historically flown well below the radar of the mainstream but has lately taken a shift to more openness and transparency. Check out the Webmonsters website and I'll try to post more details at a later point.
