I have to preface this by saying that what I’m about to tell you is completely Igal Koshevoy’s fault. Seriously. Yes it is.
Today Dr. Normal and I are down at the Mark Building of the Portland Art Museum setting up the SLL Productions part of this years Open Source Bridge conference. As we ran cables, checked lights, tested mics, set up a table full of buttons and stickers and all the other things required we were discussing with some of the amazing organizers and volunteers our schedule during this week of Open Source goodness.
We’ll be streaming the key notes each day (9 am Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and 3:30 for Friday’s closing keynote) and of course there will be B roll and interviews galore. But one of the days we were most excited about is Friday which is a full day of unconference action. Since we’re located in the foyer directly overseeing the Hacker’s Lounge there will be no end of smart interesting folks with things to say. Really. Yes. Again I am being totally serious.
So I’m declaring Friday the day of Unconferene Uninterviews (as titled by Igal… I told you it was his fault). If you’re attending OS Bridge stop by the Strange Love Live area (you can’t miss us when you’re heading into the Key Notes and Hacker’s Lounge) some time this week to sign up for a time on Friday to be interviewed on whatever it is you’re dying to talk about. Be forewarned though, by the end of a week full of conference going I may be a little short tempered… I’m wondering which would be more effective to get people off of my set, a gong or a giant stage hook.
