RubyConf 2006: Day 2

The second day of RubyConf 2006 dawned with snow on the ground. This isn’t unusual for Denver in late October, but it’s special to me since snow is a much rarer element in North Carolina, even in mid-January. The talks have been fascinating so far. Some have been more relevant to me than others, of course. Nathaniel gave his talk a couple of hours ago, drawing parallels between the way Ruby was built and the way businesses (such as Terralien) can/should be built.

Matz answered questions from the audience last night. Here’s a pic:

Here’s another pic showing what the crowd looked like last night:

Due to where I was sitting, this reflects about 75% of the room. In case you were wondering, yes, the hotel is swarming with geeks. I’ll have another update and more pics coming tomorrow, hopefully.
