Two memes in a row

I'm thinking about starting up a separate blog just for posting memes to.

California

A few observations/thoughts on California, (and San Francisco).

  • At any given time California as a whole seems best described as either:
    1. On fire.
    2. Sliding down a muddy hill.
    3. Shaking hard.
    4. Any combination of 1 through 3.
  • I'd be curious to know how much coal is being burned to generate the electricity needed to power the "zero emissions" electric street cars and passenger vehicles that seem to be so popular here.
  • Electing The Terminator as your state governor doesn't make you cool, it makes you a kook.
  • It is disconcerting to think that the smell of urine on the streets may actually be coming from ... well, urine.

Linux World Expo

Today was the last day of LinuxWorld. I'm tired. The plan is to lay low for the rest of the night, drink a few beers in the hotel room, take in some free HBO and turn in a little earlier than I have the rest of week.

All in all I'd say that LinuxWorld lived up to the most cynical of my expectations, more cheap gimmicks, booth bimbos, and swag swapping than substance. That is not to say that I didn't enjoy myself, I did, but it was more about good company than it was the setting.

On my way to LWE

So this year I managed two geeky trips, the first of course to Debconf in July, and now LinuxWorld, (props to Paul for hooking me up on both :). I've never been to a LinuxWorld before so I am not entirely sure what to expect but it should be fun.

Presently, (15:14 CDT), I am at the Airport waiting for my flight. Any other airport in the western world and I'd have connectivity, this being San Antonio however, I am working offline.
