Getting back into gear after ten or fifteen days (I'm afraid to count...) completely off the net (a number of those without even access to my computers) during which I had many things to do is hard. I'm late on just about anything, and it seems that as soon as I try to concentrate on one thing something else that's more important comes up as a reminder. And that's after I sat down and organized it all on paper for two hours. Chances are, I prolly won't sleep tonight in order to finish catching up with the most urgent stuff.
Apart from that I took a glance at the OSCon schedule, and there are quite a few interesting talks in there. I'm glad I was selected, so many people I know would have delivered great talks weren't that I almost feel ashamed I'm there, and definitely feel an incentive to deliver something really good (I would have felt it anyway, but it gives it an extra edge). The only thing that bothers me is that it looks like all the interesting things that I want to see are in time conflicts. Notably, quite a few good things are running at the same time as I am, which means I won't even see one of them. But then, I'm certainly not complaining as there's no way I'd expect the organizers to make the schedule fit my preferences
In fact, judging from last year's experience where the sessions were really good but the out-of-band and in-of-bar talking talks were even better, I'm surprised that O'Reilly doesn't market the "Beer Track" as that's definitely the best and most advanced of them all.
