Nine months ago I went to BarCampLA4.
Now it’s July and I find myself wondering why I never posted this draft. I guess it got superceded by this post.
I brought in ice and some grape soda and 7-up. Also, Nilla Wafers! I didn’t go the first day, but came the second, Sunday. It was awesome.
I had a really great time, learned what a Chumby was for the first time, saw great code demos, and got smarter.
After BCLA4, I ate dinner (Sheperd’s Pie) at Royal Clayton’s on Industrial around the block from the Greyhound Bus terminal.
I got to shake the hand of RMS, who also had closed the unconference.
I guess I intended to write more, but I never did. I think the thing about drafts that I intend to spend time on is that I just need to push them out there, because I always seem to have more to write about.
