The highlight of my trip was after the interop event. It turns out that Miguel de Icaza read my weblog and saw that I was in Boston and invited me to dinner. So I told him that a number of us were eating at Dom's and he met us there. He bround along Duncan who recognized Keith from my weblog. The food was great, and the company was great, and all made more so by the connections made possible by a random comment I made here.
Miguel took pictures at dinner and just let me know that he will be posting them shortly. As I get links to these and other pictures taken at the interop event, I'll link to them here.
