A big red X for the Archestranaut. I submitted a talk that would review and discuss the 3 or 4 most popular posts from the year. Apparently it didn’t catch the right folks fancy. That’s ok. I guess one way to look at it is that I get to enjoy more of the show than I have in years past where I was a bundle of nerves before my talk.
With that being said I’m rolling around a couple ideas around an Archestranaut themed meetup. In the Virtualization and Storage world a lot of people have started meetups called vBeers or StorageBeers. Basically it’s nothing more than an excuse for some like minded geeks to get together and share a few beers over some technical.. or non-technical discussion. If I can get a small critical mass of folks interested I’ll work on logistics, nothing too complicated. If you might be interested in getting together some time during the conference to enjoy a few beers and chat with likeminded folks either leave a comment or shoot me an email directly. Once I have enough people I’ll post info on whatever details I come up with. Oh and one other thing. This isn’t a fancy sponsored event where some vendor is paying for it all, just some regular guys and gals getting together.
