My First Award-Winning Photo!

At OSCON last month, I entered the annual HP photo contest with a few entries, one of which used a Make-inspired, door peephole fish-eye lens. Turns out, I won the contest! Now that I’m an award-winning photographer, I plan, er, to take more photographs! I won an HP Photosmart 475 photo printer, which I’m really happy with! Thanks, HP! And O’Reilly for another great conference!. You can see the winning photo on my Flickr photostream, here.

OSCON Update

A free minute, and still no post of any substance. *sigh*. I have three blog articles pending, that I’ve been trying to finish and post, and no time to do it. I don’t quite have that same blown-away, I’ve-got-so-much-to-try-when-I-get-home feeling, but this year’s con is certainly keeping me busy. Hopefully more later!

Off to OSCON!

In a few minutes, I’ll be off to Portland, OR, for this year’s O’Reilly Open Source Conference. I was there last year, and it was a great time. I hadn’t been in a few years, so it was interesting to see the changes, and now that I know some of what to expect, I’m really looking forward to this year. I also have the added bonus of travelling with a friend and colleague who hasn’t been to OSCON or Portland before, so I get to do a bit of tour guide. Promises to be a great week! Stay tuned, more here as the week progresses!
