I think that I’m going to look into attending Open Source Con 2004. It will be July 26-30, 2004 in Portland Oregon. I used to live there and have friends there, and I would like to hang out and geek out and really enjoy myself. On top of the interesting sounding program items you can see on the webpage above, there’s room for a lot of good times there. Staying at the Marriott downtown, going out with friends to Todai sushi, walking across the Morrison Street bridge to get macaroni at Montage in the wee hours, going over to Powells Technical Bookstore. I would be able to experience for myself the joy of Voodoo Doughnuts! The store opened after I left, so I have never felt the voodoo. Man, it sounds like a good time! I need to start budgeting accordingly.
