Upcoming Gig: BCnet · Hey, two con­fer­ences in my home-town in one mon­th, April 22-23. The full name is Light­ing the Path: Con­nec­tions for the Fu­ture but ev­ery­one just says “BCnet”. I’ll be wear­ing my Sun hat for this one, and hop­ing to see some of the home­town folk.
Photo Notes · Re­marks from the pho­to world, in­ter­spersed with up­lift­ing Hawai’i snap­shot­s. It’s about emo­tion, not just tech­nol­o­gy ...
Upcoming Gig: J1 Blogger · There’s a re­al­ly strict lim­it on the num­ber of JavaOne pass­es for Sun em­ploy­ees. I can usu­al­ly man­age to score one, but that’s one that some­one else isn’t go­ing to get. But I’ve not­ed with ap­proval that there are press pass­es for suc­cess­ful tech­nol­o­gy blog­ger­s; I’m one of those so I ap­plied, and now some­one else can get that pass. I’ve missed two J1’s in a row, so I’m look­ing for­ward to get­ting back in­to that cul­ture a bit. Now, can I ac­tu­al­ly dig up some news?
Upcoming Gig: Open Web · Right here in town, as the name sug­gest­s: Open Web Van­cou­ver 2008, April 14-15. This is put on by the Van­cou­ver PHP Users As­so­ci­a­tion; it’s great to see the Web re­li­gions open­ing up to each oth­er like this.
Upcoming Gig: Silly Valley Ruby · This is right in the mid­dle of San Jose, April 18 and 19. To be pre­cise, SDForum’s Third An­nu­al Sil­i­con Val­ley Ru­by Con­fer­ence. SDFo­rum seems like a good or­ga­ni­za­tion. I ac­tu­al­ly have nev­er been to any kind of Ru­by gath­er­ing in the Bay Area, so have no feel for the lo­cal cul­ture; I’m look­ing for­ward to this.
Upcoming Gig: Tech Days Mexico City · I’ve on­ly vis­it­ed Mex­i­co on­ce, for a few days fif­teen years ago, and loved it. I’m to­tal­ly look­ing for­ward to ap­pear­ing at Sun Tech Days Ci­u­dad de México, May 21-23. I en­joy these events; they draw a young, ea­ger, re­fresh­ing crowd.
