Shmoocon - v 2.1

Last night, Albedo came over and stayed the night. We ate an an Afghan restaurant around the corner, and while the food was great, it did not settle well with me at night. I slept fitfully, waking up suddenly gasping for air about 4-5 times before whatever it was passed. I think there was some spice that didn't agree with me because I had massive heartburn. He left early this morning, and we parted way when he was going to the zoo to see the new Cheetahs (the zoo is about 2 blocks uphill, across the street). It was good to see him again.

I went to the panel on, "Practical Privacy and Anonymity," by someone only known as "Simple Nomad," which was mostly advice I already knew, didn't really need, but there were some amusing stories at least.

There was nothing I wanted to see until 2pm, when I am going to try to see a panel on how "Root Fu," a hacking competition, is done.

So far... I am iffy about whether coming here was a good idea. I kind of feel like I don't fit in. Attempts to start conversations have fallen flat, and those that are talking are tight cliques of people who already know each other.
