Had a relaxing weekend.
Alex and I dressed up as candy ravers for an early halloween party.
Which involved a lot of running around costume hunting.
And then of course we hit on the most brilliant of all costume ideas, to be employed this weekend. Watch this space for v2.
. . .I’d planned not to do any traveling for a while but that appears to be impossible, so I’m going to Utah tomorrow.
Today is "wake up at 2pm" day, due to all the recent travel. I think that means it’s also Kill Bill day for me, though all my friends have already seen it.
Jimmy at the outdoor book place.
Saw Interolerable Cruelty. Overall very funny, though not a new Lebowski.
I appear to be in Florida.
One of the things I did in Bangalore was listening to various types of music in the car to see how they felt in the context of India.
Everything felt different, some things still made sense, and some things made a lot less sense. Hip hop was especially funny; for example, the concept of a "player hater" was utterly out of place. Even the dirtiest electronic music felt incredibly clean. And radiohead sounded like a bunch of spoiled whiners (which they don’t usually to me — at least not so much).
Some notes from my dashboard session at FooCamp are online. I’m not exactly sure who wrote them.
Boston was beautiful yesterday; drizzly and cold today. Summer is definitely over.
The Economist recently had an interesting article about "the transparent corporation." The idea seems to be that those companies that reveal more information about the way that they work end up working better and developing deeper customer relationship and better loyalty. This makes instinctive sense to me, up to a point. That’s why I’m trying to get Ximian (and Novell) to blog more, at least on the product development side.
Alex checked the beginnings of his C#-based blogging client, daybook, into CVS.
