RubyConf.new(2005) => "San Diego" #

by why in cult

The barren conference page has just a solitary cattail of what we need:

Oct. 14 – Oct. 16, 2005
(Facility TBA)
San Diego, CA

I just packed a bag and set it by the orchids in my doorway. I’ll be tripping over that for the next seven months.

I won’t be going this year, because if I were to go I’d refuse on principle the USA ’s offer to fingerprint me on arrival and probably end up lying naked in a cold wet concrete cell with a light shining in my face 24 hours a day and no access to a lawyer or anyone in the outside world. Wheew … glad I managed to avoid that!

Might go to EuRuKo instead.

Oddly enough I was considering moving there (San Diego not the conference) this summer. I suppose that’s not really odd, but yeah.

Rob: I feel the same currently when thinking about visiting the USA . It really is a shame given how much I liked the country and the people there.

Funny, I just found out about the Ruby conference coming here to my hometown of San Diego yesterday, here on this message thread:

http://groups-beta.google.com/group/comp.lang.ruby/browse_thread/thread/cf091cfae9873a64/ (scroll down to see Dan’s comment about coming out from Utah)

I’m thinking of starting a Ruby User Group here to build up steam for the October conference, maybe we can get started on nailing down celebrities (like yourself :) to some appearances in exchange for my services as a tour guide slave for the seedy side of our sunny city?
