Day 2 started out with an interesting TWiST… yes, that’s a pun, and yes that’s on purpose. Matt Heusser, Markus Gaertner, Ajay Balamurugadas and I (with Adam Yuret joining us later) did a Live podcast where we discussed the CAST testing challenge and…
I had intended to write this last night. Alas, I was far too exhausted and flopped into the hotel room with the telly and the lady-wife, and promptly fell asleep. So, Yesterday was an astounding day. I met a scad of people in person I…
So I get to the Lynnwood convention center and sign in, pick up my badge, etc. and there’s Harry Robinson giving me a hard time about my previous post. For the record, his talk is very interesting (as I remember) and it was well attended and received today at CAST also. Today, the sessions I [...]

I guess time is going by faster than I realized. But now I can tell. There are signs. The contents of twitter messages. Email. And this Friday, even phone calls.
CAST 2011 is upon us.
