Pix from Manilapalooza!
Dave Winer up front, discussing various and sundry and showing off Pike
Most of these pictures I took during the break.
here's Bob and Kate
Julie, Susan, Sheila, Kate:
Here's Julie and Sheila, sharing a laugh over wacky and irreverent comments made by the photographer, and learned by the photographer from her mother:
And hey! you know who else was there? Dan Gillmor.. whom I met, and who consented to stand next to me while I poked my digital camera at us both:
Kate and I did the same thing.
Near the meeting room where we were, there was a fountain on the campus of De Anza College:
It's looking like the beginning buds of spring are showing up on some of the trees on campus
Back inside the meeting room, Matt Neuberg showed off his very own Frontier tee shirt
All the above pictures I processed in Photoshop during the second half. So, when things came to an end, I hopped it down to the front of the room to see if there was a spare ethernet connection I could use to upload them.
Andre restarted his powerbook again so that he could give me the IP number he'd used.
Next, time to go from De Anza to a place called La Fiesta in Mountain View. It so happened to be the gorgeous twilight time of day. Here we are, driving toward the sunset.
Once in the restaurant, drinking, eating, storytelling and picture-taking ensued.
We were so many in number that we ended up forming a second table.
During dinner, I came to learn a bit of what Dave referrs to as "Biermania"!
I imagine that he's got a similar picture of me, camera in hand. Bob, please post it! : ) (Later: he did!)
More pictures. Here I am with Dave Winer.
And here is Sheila, Bob "Biermania" Bierman, Moi, Dave
We later adjourned outside, where more margaritas were consumed, thanks to Ken Dow and his continual pitcher-pouring.
The area was lit by red floodlights....
Here's Brent, the birthday boy! Happy Birthday, Brent!
Dave and Andre:
Andre and Brent:
Check out the interesting highlights on Brent's glass. Here's a detail view:
Sheila, lit in red:
The two of us:
Finally, the whole group of us, standing around, reluctant to leave one another's fine company....
A lovely time! Let's do a gathering in L.A.! :D
