There He Goes

March 24, 2008

Just arrived in Pittsburgh after a 5 hour travel ordeal which should have normally taken no more than 3 hours. Didn’t faze me one bit though, because I’m running on pure adrenaline, PSYCHED for Carnegie-Mellon in a few hours. CMU faculty, students and staff and local geeks alike who are interested in being inspired and captivated please join me as I present “Crash: How a Billion Little Collisions Define Everything” at 5pm later today in Newell-Simon Hall.

A true treatise on the meaning of technology, life, the universe and everything. I am very proud of how the presentation has shaped up. Still need to put some polish on the presentation, but its solid! Also, it will be recorded so hope to post a video sometime tomorrow evening on the day after.

America, here we come…

Hey! It’s Jack here, just wanted to let everyone know that we are in the final stages of preparation for the Fedora University Tour 2008 and I can’t wait to hit the road next Monday.  First stop is Carnegie-Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA!!   The travel plans are (mostly) taken care of, arrangements with the schools are finalized and my “lecture” is about 90% complete, just a little tweaking here and there to make some final changes.  I’ll make the next blog post about the presentation actually, its pretty fascinating!

How can you get involved?  Well first, if you’re a student, faculty or staff member at any of the schools on the Schedule, SHOW UP!!  Also, tell everyone at your school.  The talk isn’t just for students, its for everyone interested in technology, geekery and especially software.  Second, feel free to add comments here, suggest people to speak to and things to see at the various schools.  There are lots of CS/CE professors who might be interested in talking to us, but don’t know that we are coming.  Let them know.  Lastly, bring cameras, photo and video to the talk and make sure to post up what you captured on here.

Fedora takes over your school in T-Minus 1 week!!!
