Too much fire and not enough water or earth.
I need time to recenter and find my peace before plunging into all the tech stuff this weekend. I'll just find a park or walk down to the lake and bliss out.
Having time to decompress, to digest things that have been going on, to think about where I'm going and whether that's right - that's really important to me. Right now I think I'm going in the right direction, but I don't want to sustain sugar rushes for too long.
I think I'll cancel my Wednesday plans. I'd like to slow down and let the universe speak.
Random Japanese sentence: ネコはエジプト人によって飼い慣らされたものである。 Cats were domesticated by the Egyptians.
From the announcement:
"Coming Soon: The Code Breakers – a BBC World Documentary on FOSS and Development
A two-part documentary, "Code Breakers" will be aired on BBC World TV starting on 10 May 2006. Code Breakers investigates how poor countries are using FOSS applications for development, and includes stories and interviews from around the world."
And most importantly, to go along with the FOSS theme, they state:
"Following its ten transmissions on BBC World the documentary will be available copyright-free for broadcast throughout the world."

It's really a geek haven. Computer books fill the windows and the shelves. Laptops are out, open, and plugged in. Assorted penguin buttons are on sale.
It's a great place to run into people. On the way in, I chatted with a biologist who's working on bringing the ideas of open source to genome research. I'm sitting across a geekette with mad AIX skills. David, the proprietor, is always fun to chat with about everything from the local geek scene to the latest chocolate concoctions.
I think I've found a good home for my get-togethers. I want to get to know a lot of people, and I want them to get to know each other, too. It's difficult to entertain at the Graduate House because of the security restrictions and the way our suite is laid out; I don't have enough space to entertain. Hosting get-togethers at the Linux Caffe promotes something I believe in, offers people more variety and choice, and makes it easier for me to focus on people.
Let's make that happen. Next Friday, I'll have a get-together here. I hope to eventually turn that into a lecture series, so that I get to learn about interesting things from very interesting people. Perfect... =)
