So the flight was pleasurable, except for the dense clouds of smoke from brushfires around LAX, and the hotel doesn’t have free wireless. Oh well.
On the shuttle from the airport to the hotel I met Shaun Walker, the mantainer of the DotNetNuke portal project. He was flying in from Vancouver. Then, while having a beer with some ‘softies, Mr. Miagi sat at the table near us. I pushed back with some effort the urge to do some karate moves and simply chalked these two encounters as good omens.
Tomorrow I’ll bring the camera with me and try to get a picture with someone famous. And at 6pm, the experience will begin 🙂
