This is unimatrix, reporting live from YAPC::NA over the wireless network which lenzo and moi (to use the local language) have just set up. Registration starts at 4pm (which is 43 minutes from now - and counting).
I am indeed in shorts as it's pretty warm. Yesterday we had a bit of rain which was compensated by humidity today.
The bad news is that Larry can't make it as he is apparently rather ill; Damian will do his opening talk instead.
A few guys have already arrived and are hanging around the registration area.
My lightning talk (aspect-oriented perl) coincides with acme's compiler talk, so I'll ask mjd to move my talk to the back. Trying to explain this concept in five minutes is madness anyway. The title should be "The Reduced Hacker Company: The Compleat Aspect-Oriented Perl (abridged)".
I'll send updates if and when I get around, although with wireless, it should be a lot easier.
