Where Did Ben Go?

Filed under: Where I'm At — Ben @ 13:31

I don’t normally post about my circumstances, but since I’ve been pretty silent for quite a while now, I’ll make an exception. I broke my wrist 5 weeks ago, which has significantly constrained my computer use. Things should gradually return to normal…

Buy me beer!

I’m in Frankfurt until Thursday, London until Sunday, then back in Mountain View for a few weeks.

As always, happy to drink beer.

As of next week I will be working for Google. Although I will be based in the London office, for the next two months I will be in Mountain View.

As always, interested in get-togethers, especially if they involve beer.

I’ll be in Dallas next week, attending the always-riveting IETF.

I’d love to hear from anyone around there I should meet up with.

Boston and San Francisco

Filed under: Where I'm At — Ben @ 14:33

I’ll be in Boston from Tuesday the 7th Feb to Friday the 10th, for an “identity summit” at the Berkman Center for Internet and Society, then in San Francisco for Codecon, until Monday the 13th.

I really must travel less.

Yep, ShmooCon is in its second year, and twice as big this time. I’ll be there, but you won’t, unless you’ve already registered.

Always ready for a beer, as usual.

For the click-impaired: its in DC, Jan 13-15.

LISA and ApacheCon

Filed under: Where I'm At — Ben @ 17:06

I’ll be at LISA, at least for the last day, where I’ll be doing a “Guru is in” session on OpenSSL, Apache and DNSSEC (and, to be honest, anything else anyone wants to talk to me about), then I’ll be at ApacheCon for the duration, hanging out at the Hackathon (where the Apache developers get together over the weekend) and the conference, where I will not be giving a lightning talk, because you just can’t trust Fred and Fitz.

For the impatient, both of these events are in San Diego, next week and the week after.

If anyone wants to meet up, I’d love to hear from them.
