  • Event – Bar Camp (Day 2)

    Day 2 of Bar Camp was, if possible, more interesting than Day 1 (perhaps becasue Day 1 was only 5 hours, while Day 2 was a full 24 hours). I had to slip out in the late afternoon to go to the OPML Editor road show in Berkeley, but saunterd back in late evening just as the drinking binge was getting into full swing. But the drinking and partying was justified. It was a long and productive day. Read More

Everyone had to… Read More
