Democamp

Damian Conway is t3h c00l, _totally._ What an awesome speaker!

I was going to videoblog showing my latest hacked T-shirt (FITC2006:
Technology and Design Festival, turned into a beaded halter/tube top
with a bolero-style thing), but I seem to have left my camera at No
Regrets. Oops. Well. Hope the restaurant lives up to its name! =)

I didn’t leave my Moleskine notebook (whew!), which would’ve been far
worse considering all the fun conversations. Here’s a brief list:

  • Floyd of InfoQ, faceted search and browsing
  • Cameron, technology design, NY
  • Joey, Wendy
  • Paul Baranowski: encouraging independent media in developing democracies. He wrote that tagline in my notebook himself! Way cool. Always good to meet people who can express their purpose.
  • Ian Irving, false positives. Err, not much detail otherwise. I don’t read
    his blog yet, so that introduction didn’t leave me with much to go
    on, and I saw someone I wanted to talk to.
  • Chris, intentional programming.
  • Olivier Yip Tong, Toastmasters: must tell about Toast I.T.
  • Michael Bodalski, Toastmasters: must tell about Toast I.T., also GTD inboxy things
  • Lionel Fogler, knowledge management (remember sewer technician story)
  • Quinn, data
  • Brent Ashley, Emacs
  • Malgosia Green, totally funky pair of glasses
  • and other conversations not written down for some reason or another

Did totally smalltime Emacs demo, too. =) Should do a proper Demo soon.
