Overheard in D.C., random sighting in Albuquerque

On Monday, I was running the StorageSS ’07 workshop, held just outside Washington, D.C. While riding in the conference hotel shuttle, I overheard two grad students talking:

“So, have you seen any of the sights yet?”
“No, but I want to go see the man in the chair.”

And today, I’m in a coffee shop in Albuquerque, and I randomly see a dreadlocked dude browsing through the books who is wearing, of all things, a Solaris 8 t-shirt. It asks if your company is “dot com ready.” Looks brand-new, too.
