Extremely disappointed in the last day of eTech 2006. I have notes I'll write up from the earlier days, and really did enjoy several sessions, but today:
lostthe ballroom and other large rooms we'd used the first two days. As a result a conference of, I'm guessing, 1000 people tried to cram into four breakout rooms designed for maybe 100-150 people. Several breakout sessions were overcrowded, and at one point during the Social Media at Yahoo! session I wrote in my notebook:
I am fucking tired of sitting on the floor!, which was ironic as there was no space to sit on the floor and I was actually standing. I walked out a few minutes later.
So, in a desperate effort to do something productive, I wrote up a proposal for automating authentication for robots. I'll post it shortly, perhaps after I write some proof of concept code.
I am going to try to fly home tonight on a red-eye rather than the flight I'd booked for tomorrow. I have absolutely no reason to stay and hang out in San Diego.
