Backlog: Software Freedom Day

Goodness, I have *such* a blogging backlog. Here’s a story about
Software Freedom Day last 2006.09.16 that helped me learn a little bit
more about what I love doing. =)

Jane Zhang e-mailed me the night before. The
projector plans had fallen through. She asked me if I knew anyone with
a projector or knew anywhere they could rent one on short notice. I
remembered that Roger Yang brought a projector
to a vegetarian food fair a few weeks ago, so I forwarded her request
to him. I was glad to hear that it turned out well. Good karma points
all around!

The funny thing about favors is that they draw people closer together.
Who keeps score in these things, anyway? I get a warm and fuzzy
feeling (hereafter abbreviated as WAFFy) about Roger for helping Jane
out with this, and I look forward to, say, going rockclimbing with him
this weekend. I get WAFFy about Jane for thinking of me and giving me
this opportunity to help out. And I get WAFFy about being able to make
that connection, too. They’re both awesome people.

So that’s story 1 for Software Freedom Day. More to follow!
