Ok, a bit later than I had hoped, but here is a quick report about my recent trip to New York for the Movable Type Idea Exchange...

First things first: if you want to watch the video I took of the speakers during the event, go here: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/movabletips-tv. I recorded and streamed the entire thing using an Android tablet propped up against a box, so the quality isn't 100% but you can clearly understand the speakers.  Also, the stream cut out every ten to fifteen minutes so the recordings are broken down into many smaller chunks. My own presentation (about localizing Movable Type) starts about a minute or two into this video: http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/26244097.  You can also download a pdf of my slides.

Mark Carey from MT-hacks has announced a Bootstrap-based theme for Movable Type.  If you don't know Bootstrap yet, it is a collection of stylesheets and javascript files that you can use to quickly put together a great-looking website using pre-made elements.  The theme can be downloaded here.  Documentation is still incomplete at this time, but I'm sure that will change soon.

Update: the event is over, recorded video can be found at http://www.ustream.tv/channel/movabletips-tv
