I'm posting from the living room of a few friends in the midst of a delightful impromptu gathering. Yay. I've been hanging with people, taking pictures, eating pizza and drinking Australian wine out of comically enormous glasses. The room was so full of laptops I had to crimp my own cable to get some network connectivity. I can safely say that it's been an interesting day.

The Mozilla party last night was pretty interesting. We took a break from the party and I got to go out to Buca di Beppo for dinner, which is this crazy Italian place in San Francisco that is really hilarious. Every conceivable surface of the place is covered with pictures of the Pope and JFK, statues, christmas lights, etc. In addition to having a delightfully tacky ambience, they also have food that is pretty good, in quantities sufficient to stuff even the most starving of geeks. Anyway, the combination of jovial geek conversation and Chianti primed me for heading back to the Mozilla party. I ran into a bunch of people I knew from MIT, as well as various Linuxcare and Eazel folks. It was interesting actually attending an event that I'd previously only read about on the web.

I'm going to post this now and get back to relaxing/socializing. :)
