I was sitting in O’Hare, on the floor next to a power outlet, waiting to get on my American plane and Gershwin’s “Rhapsody In Blue” comes on in my iTunes. I laughed out loud.
On the plane, I chatted with the guy next to me. “What are you going out to Portland for?” He gets the look on his face that I immediately recognize: “I don’t want to have to explain it.” “An open source conference” he tells me. Turns out he works at UBS with my friend Eric Sinclair, and already has my testing talk circled on his list of stuff to see.
I’ve also got 50 copies of my job ad printed as flyers. Who knows what I might find?
