on my way to san jose...and beyond

| 1 Comment

On Sunday morning I leave Rochester for San Jose, where I'll pick up a rental car and drive to Monterey for the 2008 Internet Librarian conference. When I agreed to give the closing keynote, which falls on Halloween, I jokingly said to the conference organizer that I should give the talk in costume...and then promptly forgot about it. Not long ago the printed conference pre-program/advertisment arrived in my mailbox, and I found that my talk was being prominently advertised as being given in costume. Ack!

So, last week I rummaged through my World of Warcraft characters' wardrobes, and visited local costume shops, and came up with a way to make myself look as much as possible like one of my characters. I'm quite sure there will be Flickr photos to commemorate it. I'm less sure that's something I pleased about!

After the conference, I head to Berkeley to meet with folks at Yahoo! Research on Thursday, and the following day I'll go to Mountain View where I'll be giving a Tech Talk at Google. Then Saturday I fly back home.

I'm looking forward to the trip, a lot. But for the first time in a long time I'm actually a little nervous about preparing my presentations, so I expect there will be a good bit of time spent obsessing over the next week.

Sounds like an engaging week. I'm sure you'll do great with the presentation - can't wait to see the online pics.
