WellonsCon 2006 [Jul. 21st, 2006|12:50 am]
Lindsey Kuper

Wellons will be in town from Sunday through Friday for OSCON. Schedule of events as follows:

  • Monday, July 24:
    • 7:00-whenever p.m.: My house. Keynote address, tour of facilities, etc.
  • Wednesday, July 26:
    • 7:30-10:00 p.m.: FOSCON. (A ridiculously high percentage of the interesting people I meet in Portland turn out to be affiliated with Free Geek. We should really go to this.)
    • Around 10 p.m.: eliciel's belly dance performance (attendance mandatory for all registered WellonsCon attendees) at It's a Beautiful Pizza, which is about three minutes away from FOSCON by car.
  • Thursday, July 27:
  • ALL WEEK: Sneaking into OSCON sessions; acting like we're supposed to be there. Or, at the very least, talking incessantly about how we're going to do that.

Good gracious, that sounds awesome!

This explains, I think, why my dude Brett zip4096 is mysteriously taking a Google work trip to Oregon this week. Say hi if you run into him; he'll be that one scruffy unix boy with the enormous beard and probably a t-shirt from an obscure IDM group :)

*nods* Yeah, the one with the beard. And the big hair.

Gosh. I hope I'm actually performing at that time.
*gr* having issues with the coordinator never telling people when they've signed up until the night before *gr*
Well, if I'm not lined up with them, I'll go on the other side of the fountain and dance to someone else's music! :-)

Looking forward to the Monday night thing. The Tu/Th stuff is a little too computer geeky for me.

Well, royhuggins has kindly agreed to call us when the dancer before you goes on, so if I'm not already at the pizza place then, I'll zip over there when he calls. I'll happily miss part of FOSCON to see you dance.

He might not have been at the 'con -- more likely, I think, that Brett W. Thompson was headed out to visit The Dalles...

Just in case you were wondering :) But he was almost certainly still wearing an IDM shirt and looking like he does.
