Moo goes to HackDay

The Moo team are slowly recovering from 'Hackday London', sponsored by the BBC and Yahoo! Over 400 developers got together for a two day event at Alexandra Palace, featuring speakers, music, bacon sandwiches, and most importantly, lots of coding - just for fun.

We saw some great things being made and worked pretty hard ourselves. We also spoke to some lovely people, and handed out a lot of 'Yay!' stickers. No one got much sleep, but as you can see, we took our time there very seriously indeed.

We also spied a cool little desktop app someone has written for MOO. Hopefully it'll be finished off soon and we can give you a few more details. If anyone is doing any MOO related things, do let us know, it's great to see what you're up to.

While we were in London Richard M (our CEO) was in San Francisco, chatting to Dan Fost, at the SF Chronicle. The resulting article went online on Saturday, so take a look and see what was said.

As ever, people taking beautiful shots for their MiniCards, these are two we've spotted recently...

I got my moo cards the other day and I LOVE THEM. I can't part with a single one, which definitely defeats the purpose lol. I'm so ordering a 100 of them.
18th Jun, 2007 19:54 (UTC)
I've just done the same - but can't see myself parting with any of them either!!
18th Jun, 2007 15:36 (UTC)
Bacon sandwiches!!

I love the BBC. They gave me free beer once and I was very happy.

I want a yay! sticker to slap on my guitar!!

Everyone seems to be excited with their Moo Card...I'm still wating fro mine. Hope I have it soon...
19th Jun, 2007 22:38 (UTC)
I just got mine today! :D (ok, I might have gotten them yesterday, but I finally bothered to check my post box) I absolutely love seeing some of my favourite pictures in print!
20th Jun, 2007 03:47 (UTC)
My set of 10 free cards arrived today! They're gorgeous. I really did not expect them to look *this* nice!

The colors are crisp and bright. The size and shape are appealing, and they're very thick.

The only disappointment was the back. Apparently Moo's printer can only handle Roman letters. The letters of my name in Hebrew were randomly shuffled around.

I'm torn about ordering a full set. The Moo cards are beautiful , but being able to include my Hebrew name was the point of getting another card.

In any case, I have ten great ones to pass out to friends!

I finally got my Moo Cards! They are so cute and tiny and... and... CUTE! I was definitely pleasantly surprised by the print quality. They look great.

Thanks Moo!

21st Jun, 2007 02:01 (UTC)
Got my moo cards, for some reasons I couldnt get the photos one so ended up with text, it was supposed to be a variety of words but I'm not complaining! I'm pretty happy with my cards so thank you! (Later on I will purchase some cards for resumes and art galleries and what not)
21st Jun, 2007 04:04 (UTC)
