Switched to hangouts version of chat and instantly went into paranoid mode about photos shared. Seems to be limited to those in the hangout though. Neat. So far, liking hangouts instead of old chat way a bit better -- including the phone app.

Seems a good way to get people to use G+ more, in a way ;)

Hey! I think I remember you from T-con! Or maybe I just saw you around frequently, I used to live in that area. Your face, and more specifically your pictured T-shirt look awfully familiar. I added you to my circles as I "am following you", so as not to intrude upon you private affairs. :) I look forward to getting to know more about someone from the old neighborhood!

Tomorrow begins my first time at an "unconference." She's Geeky was so nice to even send out what one of these things is. Plus, they have a list of what folks are interested in discussing. I recognize a couple of my desires.

Also, I hear tell that EA has sponsored something that's going on today. Awesome :)

One of the things I learned this weekend at She's Geeky is that my HCI class (the free one offered by Stanford online) is postponed. I hoped it wasn't true but just checked the website.

It is not starting today but now starting sometime in February.

Nooooooooooo!

Had a great day at She's Geeky. It was my first time at an unconference and, of course, my first time at She's Geeky. Easy access to stuff like this is definitely one of the reasons why I decided to finally move to this side of the US :)

The group was very diverse. I saw young children, and more seasoned women. There were women that just graduated or still in school, some thinking about returning or switching to a tech career, some that have evolved with tech for quite a while, and more.

A few takeaways from the day: 1) Being a geek is frakkin' awesome (srsly -- all sorts of geeks are groovy) 2) Try something new (new language, lead a session for the first time, solder circuit boards, etc) 3) We all have something to offer (can teach others to solder, can inspire others to make a shark with frikkin' lasers, can mentor with a word, can support/encourage, etc)

Looking forward to tomorrow though I don't know if I can add anything else to my already way too long project list.
