Flash Bus happened in San Jose and it was amazing! David's methodical approach can teach flashes any poor soul, software engineers included. His and Joe's ability to control AND entertain the crowd will make any politician envious.
I was impressed with uniformity of the equipment used by Mr McNally: nothing but c-stands (really heavy I should say) with beams holding Lastolite Skylite diffusers or flashes on Justin clamps. TriGrips and Triflashes made appearance. The thought that Lastolite rules come to mind.
The crowd was also interesting - never seen so many nerds talking about their gear in one place. ;-)
