I went to my hotel, then to the Conference hotel to hang out and register. Since Socialtext is a sponsor I received a bright yellow badge with an even brighter ribbon. That's new to me, but so is Web 2.0. I know a bunch of folks at this conference, but none of them were around yesterday. Thankfully my co- worker Jon Prettyman arrived around dinner time so we took a walk to North Shore for food.</p><p>North Shore was cool. We found a Rogue Beer Garden, October Fest style, and sampled some Rogue and German beers. Then we went to a Seafood and Jazz place for dinner. They serve New Orleans and Cajun food while the band dishes out the tunes. Gelato and a last call drink finished off the excursion and I crashed in my room.</p><p>Now I'm up at 6:30am, my bright yellow badge almost glowing to keep me awake. Today should be fun. Several Socialtext employees get to speak at the conference and I get to meet some friends again.</p><p>Posted from <a href="http://caseywest.com/">caseywest.com</a>, comment <a href="http://caseywest.com/journal/archives/005373.html">here</a>.</p> cwest 2005-10-05T13:56:01+00:00 journal On my way to Web 2.0 http://use.perl.org/~cwest/journal/27011?from=rss <p> Headed to a happening conference. About to board for Web 2.0. </p><p> I have the exciting opportunity to go to a conference as an attendee, I get to soak up all the interesting things from other people. I also get to meet some of my co-workers for the first time. I expect I'll be in Palo Alto for the afternoon, and I'll return to San Francisco in the evening. These things are very fluid though. </p><p> Web 2.0, see you soon! </p><p>Posted from <a href="http://caseywest.com/">caseywest.com</a>, comment <a href="http://caseywest.com/journal/archives/005362.html">here</a>.</p> cwest 2005-10-04T12:12:42+00:00 journal What's Happening http://use.perl.org/~cwest/journal/26886?from=rss <p> Life goes fast. </p><p> Our new baby is a happy one, he sleeps well and eats a lot. He's cute too, I think. </p><p> Today is the beginning of week number four at a new job. I don't think I mentioned it when I started, which is bad, but I'm working at <a href="http://socialtext.com/">Socialtext</a> and I'm having a great time. The team and work are great. </p><p> I'll be headed to Web 2.0 next week. This conference looks to be a lot of fun, I hope to see some of you there. I'll bring baby pictures and I'll help you get <a href="http://wikiwyg.net/">Wikiwyg</a> integrated into your project if you like. I've been spending all of my time working on Wikiwyg lately, and I think it's a hot project. I even did the website design, which I think isn't too shabby. </p><p> My open source work has been lagging, as most of you know. I have plenty of excuses, but none of them are all that great. You know, little things like a new baby, new job, and new life. I will overcome these shortly. Please stay tuned. </p><p>Posted from <a href="http://caseywest.com/">caseywest.com</a>, comment <a href="http://caseywest.com/journal/archives/005323.html">here</a>.</p> cwest 2005-09-26T13:42:57+00:00 journal David Oliver West has Arrived http://use.perl.org/~cwest/journal/26694?from=rss <p>Welcome to the world!</p><p> Birth2005-09-12 17:12:00 Weight7lb 10oz Length20.5 Inches </p><p>See the picture: <a href="http://caseywest.com/journal/archives/005239.html">http://caseywest.com/journal/archives/005239.html</a> </p><p>Posted from <a href="http://caseywest.com/">caseywest.com</a>, comment <a href="http://caseywest.com/journal/archives/005240.html">here</a>.</p> cwest 2005-09-12T21:32:40+00:00 journal David Oliver West, ASAP http://use.perl.org/~cwest/journal/26690?from=rss <p> Chastity has begun labor.

My color contrast is way off on my powerbook display. There is no little box in my edit view because of that. So the hate must be directed to my contrast selecting software, which probably exists somewhere behind my eyes.</p><p> I meet a lot of people and I'm trying to get into the habit of writing down some information about them. Things like phone numbers and names, and maybe how I met them or why I met them. Apple's Address Book application is great for that. But it falls short in one very important area. I can't store a photo! </p><p> I need a visual aid to remember lots of people. Photos are perfect for that, as it turns out, and address books should store that information too. I need to send this to hates-software... </p><p> I wonder if hates-software will junk up the HTML in this post I need for my journal... now do I hate MT or Siesta, or is my preemptive hate all for not? </p><p>Posted from <a href="http://caseywest.com/">caseywest.com</a>, comment <a href="http://caseywest.com/journal/archives/005083.html">here</a>.</p> cwest 2005-08-23T16:31:43+00:00 journal JSAN Updates http://use.perl.org/~cwest/journal/26360?from=rss <p> <a href="http://openjsan.org/">JSAN - JavaScript Archive Network</a> </p><ul> <li>Two more mirrors were created.

Or are we mid-sized? Whatever the case we are certainly not flagship material.</p><p>Moving on.</p><p>I was wondering if anyone was up for a stroll along the freedom trail with us. This is of course a very family friendly stroll since we are a family and we will have strollers with children in them. Non-traditional families and single participants are welcome to come. You are not required to pose as a family, nor must you affix cardboard families to yourself to fit in. All are welcome.</p><p>The date and time of this venture is, roughly speaking, Saturday June 18th at 10:30:00am. I suspect it's easiest to start at the south end, which also appears to be the beginning according to The Map ( <a href="http://thefreedomtrail.org/freedom_trail_map.pdf">http://thefreedomtrail.org/freedom_trail_map.pdf</a> ). Although the map is nearly impenetrable, there is a nice red brick road we're to follow.</p><p>My calculations suggest that if we walk at roughly 0.833 miles/hour that's basically 25 yards/minute. That should be a nice casual pace that everyone can enjoy. This should also take into consideration moderate site-seeing and very minor tourist shopping and browsing. This leaves us at the USS Constitution at 13:30:00pm. (Note: This pace is not required but offered merely as a suggestion. There will be no enforcement of this pace.)</p><p>If you have any questions or suggestions please send them.</p><p>So please, join us at The Boston Common, otherwise known as number one (1) on your map. We look forward to meeting you.</p><blockquote><div><p>Casey (Jr), Evelina, Chastity, and Casey West</p></div> </blockquote><p>Posted from <a href="http://caseywest.com/">caseywest.com</a>, comment <a href="http://caseywest.com/journal/archives/004620.html">here</a>.</p> cwest 2005-06-13T20:01:16+00:00 journal She's Doing Well http://use.perl.org/~cwest/journal/24986?from=rss Evelina's surgery was a success. She had no complications. Well, there was one. She's really pissed at doctors and nurses. But physically she's fine. She woke up about five minutes after they finished and she has been breathing just fine and she's doing well with what pain she can feel over the drugs. Plus there are Popsicles. She can't lose. She's in ICU so there aren't really many visiting opportunities but there is a chance she'll be home tomorrow. <p>Posted from <a href="http://caseywest.com/">caseywest.com</a>, comment <a href="http://caseywest.com/journal/archives/004532.html">here</a>.</p> cwest 2005-06-02T01:07:40+00:00 journal
