Hi LJ'ers...

The great folks at Mozilla has invited me back to participate in the 2010 Mozilla Summit, which will be held in Whistler, BC from July 6th to July 10th, and like last time I'll be arriving a couple of days before in order to re-experience the sights, sounds and gentle folk of Vancouver.

I expect to be arriving in Vancouver in the afternoon on Friday, July 2nd and leave Vancouver for Whistler on the 6th.

Anyone wanna meet up / have suggestions as to what to see ;-D

*HUGS*

The skies are grey outside - has been so for the last few days. Only consolation is the weatherman's promise of a dry and sunny weekend...
On Monday, the foul weather returns -- just in time for me to return to work... ;-//

Regarding Flickr
I've removed a lot of uninteresting pictures on Flickr - I had a lot of  "Oh look! - It's a mountain" pictures from my bus trip back to Vancouver earlier this month, these have now been removed, and I'm putting a bit more effort in moderating what goes up there...
Also - I've noticed that some of my co-workers have discovered my account, so I've decided to restrict pictures of a sexual nature to "friends-only" -- E.g. the latest photo session of me in nothing short of a harness (sort of) is now for friends only

...just saying ;-D

If I know you on LiveJournal and you aren't on my Flickr friends list, please let me know your Flickr user name -- or PM me an email address to send an invite ;-D

And for all Firefox 3.0+ users
Check out Mozilla Ubiquity (link fixed) and make sure to see the intro video... It's still in the works - but really cool none the less ...

...don't know, when I'll be back again...

I'm sitting in the international departure hall of Vancouver Airport... Leaving Canada and Vancouver behind is hard - especially since i don't know when I'll be back again....

The people I've met in the past 10 days have been nothing short of spectacular... One guy in particular, Barry aka.[profile] fatherbear here on LJ, was instrumental in making this the best trip I've had in a very long time...
I'm blessed to have gotten to know him....

I'm gonna be back though... That's for sure ....  but right now, it's an emotional departure for me....

TTFN -- the flight is boarding ;-D

This is a Public Cub Service Announcement

Hi gang...

In two weeks I'll be making my first trip outside Europe. I'm heading off to Whistler, BC, Canada to participate in the Mozilla 2008 Firefox Summit.
Although most of the trip will be focused on the summit, which is taking place on monday July 28th to friday August 1st, I will also be spending some time in Vancouver the weekends before and after...

More specifically, I'll be arriving in Vancouver on saturday July 26th @ 6:35 pm. (local time), heading up to Whistler monday morning, will partake in the summit, heading back to Vancouver friday (about 3 pm.) , and staying there until my plane leaves monday afternoon (@ 5:45 pm.)...

Now - I'm not familiar with anybody from Vancouver on my friends list - but chances are that some of you know a friendly bear or two in Vancouver, that might be interested in showing this cub the sights, sounds - great places to eat - or just being good company ;-D

So - If you know someone that maybe interested, please feel free to refer them to my blog...


Thanks in advance

I've been actively working to maintain a positive attitude towards life... Been thinking about spiritual concepts like Karmic Wheel/"What you give is what you get" lately... I've made an effort to be more proactive at work - be more overbearing when others make (what i percieve to be) mistakes....
And in some sense, I'm slowly starting to believe that you in some sense can reap rewards by just taking a more positive stance on life.... A few observations:

I've got a interesting job - got some nice colleagues and I very often get positive and affirmative comments from the things I do...
My department chief and the chief consultant has just commented independantly that they find me more skilled as head-honcho for the subsystem, than the guy currently holding that position (my intermediate boss), although I'm very new and he's been in the company for years. She (the dept. cheif)  would review the situation in the coming months - but this may be a way to a better position and/or salary...

Edwards just endorsed Obama...

To top that off, I've just been invited by Mozilla Corporation, to partake in the 2008 Firefox Summit in Whistler, B.C. Canada -- All expenses paid!
So I'll be making my first trip outside of Europe in the last week of July...

How can I feel but blessed...
