Published Photos!

I just got word that I got a couple of photos published on a nifty travel site called Schmap. Taken when we had gone to Moshulu for dinner last February, they were used as part of the Penn’s Landing section of Schmap’s Philadelphia guide. I had put them up on my Flickr page, and they not only found them there, they published the photos with a credit, and a link back to the originals on Flickr.

You can find the photos here – just click on the arrows under the photo on the top right until you get to mine.

Off to OSCON!

In a few minutes, I’ll be heading to the airport to fly to Portland, OR, for this year’s O’Reilly Open Source Conference. I’m really looking forward to this year, and I hope to be blogging about it regularly. For those not going, but wish they were, check YouTube – the organizers have resolved to post as much video of the sessions as possible.

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!

Update Stymied By Lack of Access

Well, I really wanted to post entries last weekend, during the gig, but the place we were at had only spotty cellular signal. Oh, well. We had an amazing weekend: we were happy with the way the music went (a couple of minor glitches, but hey, that’s live music, right?), the speaker was great, a bunch of kids were really impacted by the whole weekend, the location was beautiful, and we had a blast. What more could you want?

Oh, yeah, my new keyboard worked wonderfully. More on that next.

Missing Amsterdam

Back in April, Michelle and I were in Amsterdam (and other parts of the Netherlands) for 10 days (mostly for a conference Michelle was attending, but I have family there so it was also part vacation). Back in August, I was at the O’Reilly Open Source Conference in Portland, and I had a blast.

I really miss Amsterdam – it was probably the first city I thought I could feel at home living in (not a city person), but on top of that, the Euro version of OSCON just started, and it’s being held in Amsterdam…

Really wish I was there right now…
