Off to Portland via Menlo Park
By barton808 on Jul 19, 2007
Tomorrow morning I get the pleasure of getting up at 4:30 to make it to the airport on time for the 7:00AM nerd bird from Austin to San Jose. I get up so early so that I have plenty of time for my flight.
Last trip that extra time came in handy since when I got to the airport I found out I had forgotten my wallet. I turned around, drove home and was back at the airport, with my wallet, an hour later and still made my flight. Now you could argue that if I hadnt had to get up so early I wouldnt have been so sleepy that I forgot my wallet in the first place and wouldnt have need that the extra time...but thats a bit of an infinite loop and I wont go there.
Anyway Im off to the mothership tomorrow to tape a segment for the Sun Developer Network channel on Sun's GNU/Linux strategy. The month of August will feature four to five segments that all have some Linux connection: GlassFish, JavaDB and JDK and mine will be the overview that kicks it off.
From the Bay Area I then head up to Portland for first Ubuntu Live and then OSCON, both of which Sun is helping to sponsor. They both have an amazing roster of folks speaking/attending and I hope to learn from, and drink with, the majority of them.
Pau for now...
