Quickies

Step back, put on the protective visor, and get ready for some quickies:

  • I did an interview with Orv at SCaLE about Ubuntu, Canonical, LugRadio, SCaLE, speaking and various other things. Go and grab it here.
  • Ubuntu Developer Week is kicking arse and taking names, and do continue to Digg it. It is going to be an excellent week, and I am looking forward to seeing you all online at the sessions. :)
  • Big thanks to Ilan for taking me into Los Angeles and showing me around – after three years, I finally made it there. Hollywood is an interesting and wacky place, and I certainly want to get back there again.
  • The Ubuntu California LoCo team did an excellent job at SCaLE with the Ubuntu booth. It is great to see LoCo teams in action, and it sounds like it was a great success. :)
  • Nathan from the Ubuntu Californian LoCo team did a video interview with me while I was in the bar at the end of SCaLE. Go and see it here. I was a few beers in at this point, so be sympathetic to my ramblings.
  • Right now I am in San Francisco and I fly back later today. At 1pm I head to The Metreon in San Francisco to do a tour of the venue for LugRadio Live USA 2008. Google are sponsoring the venue and loads of other stuff, and the always awesome Leslie and Cat from the Google Open Source center are helping to pull everything together. They are doing a stunning job there. :)
  • Meryl gave me a a ‘Meanie Baby‘, which is a beanie duck with it’s head removed. This duck thing continues to plague my presence at conferences, and she is the ring-leader. She must be stopped.
  • Ken VanDine needs to change his name to Ken Van Damme. He was also seperated at birth from Jorge Castro.
  • WARNING: I am writing up a big blog entry about metal. Those of you who are into false-metal will not be my friend.

More soon.

    Jono! Glad you found the video interview. I’d intended to point you to it but I threw it up hastily before work on Monday and sort of forgot about it for a couple of days.

    Thanks for being such an excellent guy last weekend. It was an honor to be the first to hear your new presentation, even if I had to stand in the back with the other LoCo members!

    What?! You visit my city and don’t call? I guess I’ll have to drink these beers alone, then.

    David – damn, I completely forgot that you live here – I will be back in April for LugRadio Live USA 2008 – expect an email soon about it. :)
