(This post is from my old, old, super old site. My views have changed over the years, hopefully my writing has improved, and there is now more than a handful of folks reading my site. Enjoy.)

A couple of weeks ago, my friend Jeremy Hinegardner wrote me to say that he had just talked to James Duncan Davidson at a conference (James is one of the speakers)- and he noticed that James was also the person who wrote the nice review of VoodooPad up on O'Reilly's site. That conference was also coming to St. Louis in just a couple of weeks time, so he suggested that we meet... which we did last night. (I also breifly met Jason Hunter who was with James, and another fellow, who's name I forget)

I bought James a drink (yea, just one- I was too busy talking and didn't notice that he had already finished his first one :) and we talked about Mac OS X and conferences and Java and Cocoa and Ruby and lots of other interesting things- I learned how Tomcat came into existence (he is the original author, along with Ant), and a bit about how the servlet spec got pushed out.

Then I looked down at my phone and noticed the time- CRAP! Kirstin was waiting for me at the airport (BAD BOYFRIEND, BAD!!). So I dashed off pretty quick- and met her at her place (she gave up on me and took the metrolink back). Whoops- sorry kla.

It was fun, and I hope I'll get a chance to talk with him again some day. Hopefully at wwdc (once Flying Meat takes off and I can afford it!).
