It's exactly a year ago that I got to visit Monterery
California to report on the 4th O'Reilly Open Source
software convention (Apache Week
issue #208) When I managed to get invited back to San
Diego for this week I thought I'd been given the ideal
assignment; getting to fly to California in July, avoiding
the British rain, and spending a week right on the West
Coast with nearly 2000 other open source advocates. So with
only one direct flight a day from England I was unsuprised
to find a large number of delegates on the plane; wearing
Penguin badges and snapping pictures of the clear views over
Greenland with a variety of digital cameras.
San Diego has great weather, and it's easy to forget that
coming from England, so I managed to get sunburnt. If
you're at the conference this week look out for the pasty
english guys with sunburn. Wireless lans are great; I'm
currently typing this listening to Brian Behlendorf talking
about Apache to a group of people including Larry Wall,
sitting just in front of me.
