I’ve mentioned it here and there, but I thought I’d put it right here: I’m going to BarCamp today! I’m going to savor the geeky flavor, or if I don’t, I’m going to escape to Fiesta Azteca for a Negra Modelo or three. See? There’s no risk involved.

But anyway, I’m psyched! It should be great. I’m excited to see several of my brainy friends speak on the primary stage: Jackson Miller, Chris Wage, and Brittney Gilbert.

And then my other brainy friends will be speaking on the secondary stage — Kat & Ivy & maybe some other folks from Music City Bloggers will talk about “Hyperlocal self-publishing portals.” As if they have any experience with that! Ha, I kid.

And then maybe we’ll all go out for drinks later. For serious! Why can’t that kind of fun be an every-night experience?

I haven’t figured out what I’m wearing, but I have, like Jackson, deliberated about what technology I’m bringing with me. And unlike Jackson, I’ve decided to bring my laptop. I may do a little live-blogging; why not?

I’m headed to camp!

    Sounds like hot might’ve been an understatement. Yikes.

    I’m racking my brains to remember where the Exit/In is…and okay, now I’m getting a visual flash of a street relatively near Vanderbilt (my erstwhile corner of it, at least…*is self-centered*) running very very roughly parallel to West End south of 40. ?

    What question do you think Penelope thought she was answering?

    Oh! Forgot to answer this, sorry.

    Yep, on Elliston Ave.

    Well, the question Chris asked had something to do with whether feminists might take issue with one of her pieces of advice. Damn! I can’t remember what exactly she said in her advice. Ugh. I remember being impressed that he caught the nuance (but then Chris is very good with nuance) of submission or whatever it was he was picking up on, and she clearly missed what he was pointing out. She might have thought he was just being coarse and overreacted by amplifying his statement to ridiculous proportions, but now it’s faded from memory. Oh well.
