Another one for the Laughing Lemur Contest.
O'Reilly's first book cover in full color. The book arrived this morning, hu-hu!

Wish this happened more often, I was trying to find the Hippodrome and the only thing I knew about it was that it was by the Arcadian Centre in Chinatown.
But I hadn't come out for lipstick.
Harder to find that I thought. Requested it over a month ago from my library via ILL. Perhaps there are more lessons to learn.
In case you lost your sense of direction when you saw that the UM Museum of Art is currently a construction site...
"Ambient findability is about being able to find anyone or anything at any time or from any place. But this isn't necessarily a goal. It's a situation. There are many times when people or things don't want to be found."
@ O'Reilly's Emerging Technology Conference
With the American Peso and the speed of Amazon.com delivery, there's hardly any reason anymore not to get your English books from the US.
Taken at the Stanford Bookstore.
Interestingly, it wasn't on the shelves yet. It was on a cart in one of the aisles. I asked the clerk where it would normally be shelved. First she though e-business (I wasn't aware people still used that term), then she noticed that the back cover listed technology / marketing and computers. She pondered for a bit longer and decided that she wasn't sure. "Probably e-business."
Waiting in line for the marvellous coffee and photographing the official photographer photographing Peter Morville's book signing at the Intergen stand.
Good to catch up on your reading after a long day at the conference
