Sketchy People

There are some seriously sketchy looking people on this plane. I am fighting my native instant to exit.

I wish I could get pictures of it.

I'm In Detroit

I am back from the sunny day. At least I made it this far. Hopefully, it will be over soon as I can't wait to see MT.

Thanks for everything (e:twisted) I had a wonderful time. And thanks (e:iriesara) for coming up to San Fran.

Salvia Divinorum

On our trip down Haight Asbury yesterday we saw signs for Salvia Divinorum. It is a legal yet hallucinogenic mint plant. Here is tons of info. I had tried smoking the leaves with (e:terry) and (e:mattew) before and it was very mild and kind of fun. We had ordered the dried leaves online back in 2003.

The thing about it is the experience only lasts around a half hour. Compared with other non-legal hallucinogens that is a very short trip.

image

In the shop here we got 25x extract, they didn't even sell leaves. No large amount leaves to smoke like in my past experience. In fact I think that is what limited the effects previously. It is basically just a tiny bit of crunched up leaves soaked in extract. They sell it lots of places online like

It was very intense and we all were talking nonsense. (E:iriesara) kinda freaked out . I think she may have had a bad reaction as she turned all red and got all crazy. She was really freaked out by the carpet.

image

(e:twisted) ended up falling backwards and ending up in another universe that was deconstructing and reconstructing.

They can probably describe it a lot better.

It did make everything look quite insane. Lots of concentric geometric patterns constructed from a view of the environment we were in. Strangely, I remember saying that everything was pointed and prickley, which I think I remember commenting about in previous experiences.

I think I wasn't very freaked out because of my previous experience with it.

I definitely would not suggest trying it if you are not confortable being totally freakin' out of control.

I really have no idea how it can be legal but it is.

Fish, Dogs and Key West?

In reference to (e:ajay,527) Did anyone think he wasn't gay?

Just look at his face - he looks like he belongs in Key West.

We drove to the Aquarium yesterday in Monterey Bay Aquarium which was pretty cool after seeing a coupel weeks back on PBS. The only problem is that we got there at 5:40 PM and it closed at 6:00PM. (e:twisted) finagled our way in for free. We got to see the big tanks near the entrance and a bunch of sea anenomes.

I finally saw a skate in the big tank. It would have been better on my dinner plate. I wondered if the different tanks should instead be classfied by flavor combinations. There was definately a lemon garlic butter in addition to a panko encrusted and cocktail sauce tank.

I guess in light of the news I should probably stop eating so much seafood. Luckily, eating calamari is not bad for the environment as co pared to many other fish because the farming, collection process is very non-destructive. Apparently, they swim up to lights on the fishing boats and then they just scoop them up. Unlike other fish they dredge for.

WASHINGTON -- An international group of ecologists and economists warned yesterday that the world will run out of seafood by 2048 if steep declines in marine species continue at current rates, based on a four-year study of catch data and the effects of fisheries collapses.



We got to pet bat rays. They felt so soft and almost furry. (e:iriesara) turned to the woman next to us and said, "oh, these would make nice coats."

I love (e:twisted) 's dog pooky. So does (e:iriesara) . (e:twisted) is so lucky to have such a good pet.

I love twisted but not vendor products

She found my phone in her car and brought it to me on break. Then we went to Sonoma Chicken which was one of the tastiest eateries I have ever eaten at. Where else do you get orchids on your salad.

The streaming media conference here is more intersting. One of the interviewers in the hall just asked a macromedia tech if youtube could even exist without macromedia. I have one word for that - ebaumsworld

I do love flash video though just because it makes dealing with cross platform that much easier.

As for the knowledge management conference it keeps getting lamer. The last session was about how to choose a vendor search solution.

It seems like everything is geared for managers and purchasing directors.

Let me give you a sample of a talk.

'Flexibility and User Experience'

At first glance sounds good like I could apply it to my work. Then you read the description, 'This session discusses the journey of several clients to solve their search needs within a portal environment. (still sounds good) It illustrates with concrete examples how SharePoint intergrated with eneterprise seach technology increases the findability of enterprise content, enhances the capabilities of a portal, and improves the user experience.'

The problem with this is that it is an infomercial for microsoft SharePoint. I am not using that, I have no purchasing power even if I wanted it, and I hate microsoft products. I can't even figure out how to search the body of emails in my inbox using microsoft outlook web client. Why would anyone ever want their search product. They can't even manage their own MSN search very well.

P.S. The people at the streaming media conference are more attractive. Is that just freak cooincidence or what. Maybe I just am more attracted to artists.

Life Without Technology

Not only did I not bring my laptop with me. I have now left my phone in (e:twisted)'s car which is returning to San Francisco. I cannot believe it is going to be a virtually technology free day. I suppose I can watch televison tonight or just go drinking.

Traffic

One reason I want to life in Buffalo the rest of my life - TRAFFIC

We ate yummy food at a teashop too (e:theecarey)

I had Saint John's Wort Tea and it made me feel insane. I kind of feel like a psuedo tripping dizzyness.

I do not recommend eating to many extreme sour candies like warhead. I feel so sick from it even though they tasted so good. I might as well have eaten a dozen lemons.

Vendor Product Infomercial

So far the conference has been a sort of vendor product infomercial. I hope tomorrow with it's focus on search will be more interesting.

I know it's not just me being picky because I hear other people complaining and so far a couple people have even challenged the speakers on what they were saying.

In the future, I would rather attend a developers conference, like the PHP one right near by or the database DB world conference in Toronto last month.

At least california is cool, sushi is cheap and they gave me a free ipod for registering early.
