SELF day whatever.

Yesterday was a big road travel day. Contrary to my usual performance, I got a slightly later start than I intended in leaving home. But nevertheless Jared and I made it to Raleigh in plenty of time for Max and me to pick up the now-infamous SpeVan and return to …

Ten days to SELF 2011.

This weekend included a Monday holiday for people in the USA. Unfortunately, my enjoyment of said holiday was interrupted by coming down with some sort of sinus bug on Friday, which wiped about half of my weekend. On Monday, though, I finished some retouches on my presentation for the upcoming …

SELF pimping.

Once again this year I’ll be traveling down to the Southeast Linux Fest for a weekend full of informative talks, social fun, and exceptional collaboration opportunities with fellow Linux geeks from around the region and the nation. SELF has been an enormous hit since its inaugural outing in 2009. I’ll …

FAD @SELF 2010.

You probably already know that the Southeast Linux Fest 2010 is coming up in just a few weeks (June 11-13). The Fedora Project will, of course, be there as well. Last year I was honored to be one of the inaugural event’s keynote speakers. Apparently those crazy guys at SELF …

SELF, day 1 and 2.

SELF, day 0.8.

I should have mentioned one other fun thing that I did with my evening last night. I don’t want to put unfair pressure on anyone, and I’m sure he’s doing a ton of interviews over the course of the SELF event. But I had a great time having a long …

SELF, day 0.

I had a great flight yesterday from Dulles to Greenville — the plane was very sparsely filled, and I had an exit row all to myself! It made for a great work environment even with a short flight. When I landed and picked up my car, I was both horrified …

Head down tomorrow.

Due to my travel to this week’s Fedora Activity Day in Raleigh, and the marketing work around the release, I find myself a little strapped for time and with a lot of writing to do. Tomorrow I will probably be absent from most IRC and only addressing critical email so …

Know thy SELF.

Yes, I’m sorry about that one too. But are you getting ready for the Southeast Linux Fest? It’s coming this Saturday — a superb gathering of Linux community members, speakers from a number of different projects (including Yr Humble Blogger doing the evening keynote), and all sorts of projects to …
