Had a fantastic weekend geeking out. Saturday's TLUG technical presentation introduced me to the joys of Squeak, and I stayed as late as I could for the karaoke and stuff. Sunday was cold, dreary, and rainy. This turned out to be a very good thing, although it was gloomy in the beginning. Rain makes street performers scarce, so I decided to skip Yoyogi. Thought about going to the Edo-Tokyo Museum, but couldn't get in touch with Sebastien (a museum buff who mentioned wanting to go to the falconry exhibition). Decided to put that off instead. Got in touch with Dave Brown who invited me up to Saitama for DDR. Aaron Chmielowiec is a wizard at that thing. Asked him about Dance Maniax. Apparently, there are no more Dance Maniax machines in normal arcades. Waaah.
Had tons of fun practicing some songs with the two, as they're both better than I am. Browsed through Bic Camera afterwards. Lots of amusing commentary. Had dinner at an izakaya. Learned so many things about the Japan IT industry from the conversation. <laugh> Their college stories were also hilarious. They had such characters in their university! We talked about many other things, but I'm too sleepy to record them.
Wonderful weekend. =D
