OSCON '08 - Pictures from the Sun Party

I had a great time at O'Reilly's 10th annual Open Source Convention aka OSCON08.  I will post later about the conference itself including the podcasts I did, the announcements we made etc.  For now, here are some pics I took from the Sun Zend bash that was held in the Double Tree parking lot (which actually isn't used as a parking lot).










Above -- Row 1: (L) Tim Bray all dressed up with no place to go; (R) Geir Magnusson and Mark Shuttleworth deep in conversation.  Row 2: (L)Tim Bray and Stephen O'Grady plan out Tim's strategy for his upcoming bout; (R) A very scary clown.  Row 3: (L) The party placard; (R) Geir and Tim locked in battle.  Row 4: (L) Party Favors, complimentary MySQL boxer shorts; (R) Gordon sporting said boxers.
