I give my talk in a little over an hour…but to no purpose. This guy has been ranting on the #sk6 twitter stream all day about a boycott and a walkout and an uprising and a rebellion during my session, so I expect my discussion of the Cambrian explosion will be delivered to an empty room with people walking out and rising up and rebelling, all at the same time. It’s going to be total chaos!
I managed to catch bits and pieces of a few workshop sessions this afternoon — all good and lively and well-attended. It’s going to break my heart after seeing all this enthusiasm to be publicly rebuked by the entire aggregate attendance of the conference, all because Rich Sandersen has so much clout. Or at least, he thinks he does.
Hey, twitter, it would also be nice if searches excluded people we have blocked. Why can’t you do that?
