So here I am, counting the minutes until I get the hell out of work and head down to Laguardia Airport where I’ll be boarding my plane to Boston. My friend Vinny is picking me up for what seems to be a great weekend of geekness. Tomorrow we’re going to check out the exhibition floor at this year’s Linux World Expo, Boston Edition. I’m very excited about this for I will be there with my good friend… Have you ever been to some type of event (it could be softball) that you really enjoy but in the company of someone who doesn’t really like it and only accompanied you after putting up with weeks of you begging him/her to go with you? You know when someone in your team scores a hat-trick and when you look for that someone to high five , he/she is almost falling asleep with boredom? Well, that is NOT going to happen to me this time around, for Vinny and I dig almost the same things. I’m definitely looking forward to checking out the new companies and mingling with the Debian, Gentoo, and Gnome hackers. Hopefully they’ll also have some freebies like they did back in the very first LWE in NYC. Someone made me promise him I’d bring a Red Hat, err… hat back with me. Also, now that I have an account with Flickr, it will be easy to upload the pictures I’m sure I’ll be taking as I walk through the booths. Friday I’m having lunch with Miguel de Icaza!!! Let me say that again: I’m having lunch with Miguel de Icaza!!! Hahaha!!! He was awsomely cool enough to accept my self-invitation to meet him and get a tour of his office in Cambridge! It should be a very cool experience! Saturday nothing planned… Most likely do some hacking with Mono and do some serious coffee drinking at the local Barnes and Nobble. Sunday up early and drive to Microsoft’s HQ in Waltham for their day-long mini boot camp. Finally, I fly back home Sunday evening where I’m sure I’ll be greeted by my lovely wife and daughter!
