A mat materialized in front of the coffee machine and with such disruption of the local tranquility, the office exploded in frantic chatter and predictions of future coffee-drop-driven civilizations in the fabric. None were pleased!
Yes, we know that we are a bunch of ungrateful whiners. Luckily for world peace and office ditto, the offender was promptly removed when our mat oriented disdain was discovered. Thanks, kind and understanding cafeteria people!
code4lib 2009 is next week. Spirits are high and presentation slides are being created. No worries though, none of us are fans of the “Cram 2000 words into each slide”-strategy. In fact, the thought of no slides at all were considered, but quickly discarded – it’s pretty hard to explain multi-level redirecting pointer structures with hand waving. … Come to think of it, it’s also pretty hard to explain by presentation slides. But it’s code4lib. The audience will be bright enough to make sense out of our ramblings.
