ShmooCon and Snowmageddon

by Bill Brenner on February 6, 2010

Well, it’s day 2 of the ShmooCon security conference in the nation’s capital, and so far, so good.

The booze is flowing all around. Folks are outside drinking scotch from plastic cups and juice bottles.

I’m sober.

I’m keeping the food plan together.

I’m writing and podcasting.

I’m drinking some damn good coffee.

It wasn’t easy at breakfast this morning. The oatmeal was vile. But I ate it anyway. Got a plan to stick to.

There a blizzard in DC right now, and much of the town is shut down. Fine by me, since I’m not leaving this hotel today. And it’s made for some decent entertainment thus far: The sight of conference attendees, probably drunk, sledding down the hotel’s steep driveway on a sign that was being used for a HIPAA conference in another part of the building. Snowball fights have been happening a lot, too.

Here’s what it looks like outside as of 7 a.m.:

It’s a lot of snow compared to what the locals are used to. Back home, this would be just another storm.

Time to shower and head to today’s talks.

Seize the day.
