  • I've been at at least one conference with Andy Lester, but it took until this OSCON for my brain to be able to connect the name and the face.

    That would be YAPC::NA 2002. It's funny how it takes time face-to-face to let the connections sink in. Of course, us relative newcomers know the old-timers on sight.

    • Shame on you for not knowing Graham! I spent more time with Graham this conference than ever before, and it was fun.

        Others mentioned that too. Ingy was frustrated at not being able to wind me up and Arthur asked me to sit down before telling me about Ponie, but nothing phased me this year :-)

        Maybe it was you as you certainly seemed more relaxed than at previous conferences. Or maybe its parenthood, or me just getting older or .....
