For those of you living in the Bay Area, SuperHappyDevHouse is going on today. I’ll likely make a late arrival after I pick up my broken server in San Jose.

WTF is SHDH, you ask? “DevHouse is not a marketing event. It’s a non-exclusive event intended for passionate and creative technical people that want to have some fun, learn new things, and meet new people. In this way, we’re trying to resurrect the spirit of the Homebrew Computer Club. We also draw inspiration from the demoscene as one of the only intentional getting-things-done computer events in the world.”

Last time I was there, I met the Chairman of the EFF and the guy who put the dot in dotcom, Brad Templeton.


I also met a couple other people whom I now hang out on a semi-regular basis to drink (matt) and make pizza (ross). I Y the Bay Area.
