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:

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.

andre and the IP number:

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.

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!
