ISTE 2010: Looks

Things are winding down a bit as people are strategizing how best to acquire free food. Grub makes the world go 'round and that's especially true at ISTE.

A thought comes to mind: with so many of the tech companies around here giving away free stuff -- from trinkets and tote-bags to food and drink -- I wonder...

You know how some people really look like their dog? I mean, like you see a big square-faced guy walking a Great Dane or a little squat guy walking a little squat dog... (I'm making sense here, right?)

Well, the guy next to me just asked someone if he worked for Microsoft... based on the blue shirt he's wearing. And earlier in the day someone mentioned being upset to find that not all the Open Source guys had beards.

So -- and I realize I'm tired and delusional -- but, the question has to be asked: "DO WE LOOK LIKE THE TECH WE USE?"

What's a Wikispacer look like? What does a Waver wear? Is there a Jing dress code?

You tell me. I'm headed for grub.


  1. Too funny, its like the puzzled looks I get when kids find out that I am a gamer or that I built a plane and have a pilot's license. Or that I chopped and picked cotton when younger. I could go on and on.

  2. lol! That is hilarious. I will have to ask you what I look like when we meet and propose some ideas for you. :)

  3. With tongue planted firmly in cheek, I can say that the medium seems to be the message. Want to wear BP shirts tomorrow?

    and for the record, I didn't say I was disappointed all floss folks don't have beards, but rather that there is a positive correlation between throat beards and open source jacobins : )
