Holey carp, I can barely carry all of the swag that these NoSQL companies put out. Most of it is paperwork, but many shirts, pens, bouncy and stress balls, bottle openers and stickers.

OK, this is funny - multi-billion mega-company Oracle had - nothing. No swag. A handful of cheap black bic-type pens. I guess they figure they got the wold by the cajones, why bother giving anything back.

Hey, Robert Scoble (no "+," guess he isn't on GPlus yet....) is chairing the C-panel. gotta listen to him.

Day 2 of Dataversity.com's NoSQL NOW! 2012 Conference.
Interesting concept for the Keynote. Rather than one long keynote they have 3 - 45 minute keynotes. I think I like this format. More information, and one person can get boring for that long.

Day three of the NoSQL Conference hosted by Dataversity. I think that Mr Gumby of Monty Python says it the best: "MY BRAIN HURTS!"

Lots of great information. Definitely gave me some ideas on how to complete some side projects both for and outside of work. Not that the in-work ones will ever see the light of day, but at least it won't be because they proof of concept is not complete.

One more session, then a wrap-up panel, then off to the airport.

At the wedding of our friends Asa & Taffie in on the beach of the local lake in Sandpoint, Idaho (technically Dover). Reception in an old converted barn. Hot day, but very nice.

Story
Introduction
Currently studying for: AWS Certified Solutions Architect

Looked at 215 Laurel and the place is a horrible mess. Hasn't been painted in years. Old, worn, carpet. Just overall dirty and grimy. Master bathroom mirror loose and many doors not securely attached - many of them missing. The condition of the house told me how this landlord would take care of my needs once I was a tenant. I highly doubt they would respond to any issues that come up based on the condition of the house we looked at. I recommend you avoid at all costs.
