San Diego

Christmas Float

Just drove from San Francisco down to San Diego and thoroughly enjoyed the ride. I was booked on a plane but the rental car company gave me a lovely convertible and I heard the open road calling to me. I'm down here for ApacheCon where I'll be kicking off the new business track here with a talk providing a framework for discussing open source and business.

It's already shaping up to be a geekfest - on checking in to the room, I fired up my wifi to access the in-room ethernet via my Airport Express and found eight other delegates within striking distance doing the same. Meanwhile I spotted a cluster of delegates using their laptops in the lobby. This was all after passing Cory Doctorow at the entrance, from whom Tim and I are under instructions to collect an autograph for a Sun executive whose blushes I will spare.

Meanwhile outside there is a Christmas parade with a difference. The floats are all - well, floating. Here's hoping the rest of ApacheCon is a varied and interesting as the first 15 minutes!

You most likely drove right by my place in SoCal, where it has been rather cool lately. Driving with the hood down?? Then again, I suppose "cool" is relative :)
