The reality of the 5th struck me halfway through the afternoon: the car park at Lewes station shuts at 5pm and day 1 of the conference shuts at 5pm too. I contemplated possible quantum solutions, but to no avail. Luckily the Flash on the Beach organisers came to my rescue. The 4-5pm session on Tuesday, by Joshua Davis hadn’t looked very interesting, so John Davey kindly swapped it with the Monday one, and so I was able to leave early without missing anything important to me. Not sure how the organisers knew I needed them swapped, but thanks anyway.
One of the the two sessions I attended in the afternoon was Carole Guevin‘s session on Self Promotion, which was OK, but nothing exciting. The other was a very impressive speaker, Hoss Gifford, singing his own praises. He ran through a bunch of projects that he had been involved with. and went into what had gone on behind the scenes. Neither was particularly informative to a software developer, but both were thought provoking.
I’ll end this post with a thought for you: do you know everything? If not then you ignorant. This of course means we are all ignorant, so why does the word carry so much negative baggage?
