Unless Wikipedia is wrong (and what are the odds of that? {haha}) it appears that +Jennette McCurdy and +Ariana Grande`  both have the same birthday as I.
Although it is highly unlikely that either of them will see this post, I wanted to wish both of my birthday-sisters a very Happy Birthday. May your day be filled with joy and may you be surrounded by people you love.

[If you do end up seeing this, I hope it does not sound too corny. I do all my own stunt-writing.]

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.

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.

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.
