All signed up and ready for OSCON

It's months away still, but preparations are called such because they are made in advance, so that's exactly what I did today. Completed the speaker registrations, book the flight (17 hour trip total, uagh!). I'll be flying into Portland on the eve of the 29th of July. That means a weekend to hack and have fun in Portland before the show starts the following Monday.

And what a show. I'll be doing a keynote, a session talk, and a tutorial to be sure to fill the days. You should really come. It's going to be a fantastic show for Ruby. We'll have Matz, Dave Thomas, _why, and most of the Rails core group too.

With enough perseverance, the book will be hot off the press too. I'm excited.

17 hours? Ouch.

I'd love to make it, but I don't know that I can even swing the 8~ hours. I'm going to think about this one though, sounds like it will be worth it. I've always wanted to meet _why. Hah.

When's the next good East Coast gig. Feels like it's been awhile?

Very exciting to see you visit Portland! I wouldn't miss OSCON this year for the world!!

See you there David! A cousin who lives in Seattle wants to take me to Hood River just after OSCON. If you get a chance, you might want to check it out:

He says it's one of the most beautiful spots in the world, particularly if you are into windsurfing. One hour east of Portland.
