Heading to ETech

Last minute opportunities made it a good idea to head the O'Reilly ETech Conference in San Diego. I've wanted to go several times in the past - ETech is an enlightening look into what cutting edge techniques and concepts companies are using - typically outside of the norm.

As my global network of contacts grow, it's always great to meetup with people that I've digitally conversed with often. Jeffrey Johnson,aka Ortelius, is going to meet up and show off some of his very cool Aerial Imaging with RC Airplanes, part of the Open Aerial Map project.

The first day I'll be sitting in on a part of Marc's Food Hacking Workshop - though this past Thursday I got a very in-depth tutorial on proper cooking concepts and culinary design.

So if you're at the conference, make sure and find me. I'll leave it as an exercise to the reader on figuring out how to do that.
