1. First baseball game: 00:16
Interesting stuff. It was great going with a bunch of grad students, as many of us were completely new to the thing. ;)

David (the proprietor) received a whole bunch of free books and a number of free T-shirts from Apress. The shirts were adorable! They read "Every time Linux boots, a penguin gets its wings." I batted my eyelashes at David and he very kindly let me have one. =) I'm so hacking it.

6. Interesting people, interesting conversations: 17:24
I went to IBM, and that turned out to be perfect timing. Laurie Dillon, Pranam Kolari and Ian Chan all pinged me for lunch. I thought they should definitely meet each other, so we all met up for lunch at 12 and had a wonderful conversation about IBM intranet goodness and blogging visualizations. =) That was tons of fun.
