Off to Portland via Menlo Park

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...

About

I look after Sun's relationships with the various GNU/Linux communities as well as our relationship with the FSF. Last year, my family and I emigrated from Silicon Valley to Austin, TX.
