Californification

I'm sitting here at Google because the room in my hotel won't be ready for an hour or more. Nothing is open for lunch because it's still before noon on a Sunday. I've been awake since 1am PDT but I don't care because I'm in Cali this week. It's strangely quiet here, though there are a few other people around. And, of course, I can have Lucky Charms and Coke, the breakfast (or is it lunch according to my body?) of champions. (I do feel the need to clarify, because dmac thought I put the Coke *in* the Lucky Charms. They're a separate but equal part of this mis-balanced diet.)

Desmond is giving a talk this week here at the 'plex about his experiences last year with Summer of Code and I can't wait to see it. I got a sneak-peek a while back, which I really enjoyed, and I hope he puts on a similar show this time. I also hope he doesn't make fun of me too much, and since I'm here this week, I get to introduce him, which should be fun.

I'm also out giving a talk on Wednesday about Mac development at Google to folks at Lawrence Livermore Labs. Want to come? Too bad, I'm barely allowed to attend myself. The gyrations to get me (and my camera-enabled MacBook Pro) into the facility would make your head spin. Kudos to my host, he found a way to make it happen.

Oh, yeah, and I'm prolly going to be spending every other waking moment working. Sleep is for the weak and the old. Oh wait, frick, I *am* old. Perhaps a bit on the weak side too. Double frick.
