I’m back safe, cat in lap, from C4. This year’s theme was “Don’t ship until it’s ready, i.e., early and often, and don’t price too low, i.e., make it free.” I would like to thank @rentzsch for hosting the best conference I’ve ever attended (with the possible exception of the Marty Feldman fan club). I’d also like to suggest that C4 be moved to neighboring Wisconsin, which is home to @rentzsch as well as to “Fun”, as @dylanbr (or was it @bruzenak?) correctly noted.
The highlight of the weekend was meeting a lot of people — basically, everyone, including my coworkers — for the first time. Unfortunately, however, they came to realize that I’m a complete fraud who has been contracting out all of my coding to @macgeek02. As a result, I was fired by @PBones, fired by qdc (@???), and retroactively fired by @markonen. Fortunately, I had a backup plan: I stowed away in @wilshipley’s luggage and am now living in his basement.
C4 was not brought to you by the letter ‘w’. For some strange reason, the Apple Store refuses to sell individual keycaps. Disaster was avoided, though, when @PBones genius-ly performed an emergency transplant. |hat a relief that \as!
Another disaster was avoided when I failed to get into a fight. There were many opportunities. The much anticipated battle for supremacy over Radioshift between myself and @kickingbear never materialized. A little anticipated battle over tunes was quickly resolved when @mikeash chose Dire Straits. Apparently, drunkenbatman was too afraid to show after hearing about my unresolved anger over crashing our WebKit apps. On the other hand, the unresolved anger of @jimcorreia over stealing his chair was redirected toward @chockenberry.
I was pleasantly surprised to learn that someone other than my cat and my parole officer reads my blog. I won’t name names, for the same reason that “Hustler” comes in a plain, brown wrapper. I won’t name everyone I met at C4 either, because there are  many, but please know that I enjoyed talking with you and that I’ve put all of your names in an SQLite database, of course.
