My laptop wouldn’t talk to the projector, so I did my Knoppix talk
without slides. I forgot to give people my e-mail address. Whoops.
Still, I have a few contacts, and I guess that’s a good start. Most
people had already tried Linux, so I went for the
evangelization-of-others angle instead, although I threw in a few
benefits for newbies.
I misplaced Vahid’s index card, but I know he’s a Ma. IT student at
USC. I should write to him about repartitioning.
Chatted with Lawrence and Justin over dinner. Turns out they’re both
into Stephenson and other SF stuff. (Thanks to Baryon for introducing
me to those books!) I think I convinced Justin to try out Emacs.
It was tons of fun geeking out and swapping stories. Lawrence is a
treasure-trove of business experience and geek stories. =)
Tired from a long but absolutely fun day. Good night!
