We've flown across country to hang out with thousands of nerds and we love it! For us, the week starts out with a Media & Publishing Summit (in progress) and so far so good. Great conversations are happening about the industry, problems people are encountering, different approaches to using Drupal, etc. Dries also has encouraging news about the Media Initiative in that components of it are already coming in 8.4, such as media as an entity. WYSIWYG integration, media libraries, and more are planned for the future.
We'll check in with you later. If you're at DrupalCon, come and find us! We'll be around.
