LCA2014 - 2 sleeps to go!

Somehow, 99 days have flown by and we're now at 2 sleeps until LCA2014.  Wow.

So what's happened in this period?  How can 99 days pass without comment?  It's only by examining my photo-stream and Tripit that I can piece together what's been happening:

I started a great new job at Rackspace working on upstream OpenStack - which has been wonderful!  I've helped out on a school camp for 10 year olds. I've been to San Antonio for the first time, and Sydney 4 times. I've dressed up as a mullet-toting 80's rocker and had weekends away on Yorke Peninsula, Victor Harbor and Mt Crawford forrest (twice) with my family.  And spent many nights playing board games with good friends.

Life is busy but such a blessing.

The next week is also a highlight of the year -  The best conference going, along with a great community of freedom lovers!  Not to mention catching up with a whole bunch of people I only get to see once a year.  What talks am I looking forward to this coming week?
