Even though I can be quite happy sitting quietly in the background, I love crowds and groups. One of my passions is getting interesting people to talk to each other. After doing just that at the 2009 SciBarCamp in Toronto, we asked all participants to fill out a survey. One of the last questions was an optional open question, where we simply asked what they liked best. I collated all the answers, turned them into a wordcloud, and this was the result.

The image speaks for itself, and describes exactly the best possible outcome of the event and the aspect of it that I myself was most passionate about: meeting interesting people.

(On another level, this submission also reflects a love for information graphics and typography. )
