warm smile
I'm exhausted, been at the Internet Identity Workshop at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View. Was a fucking awesome space to have a conference, though didn't get a chance to actually look at the exhibits.

Interesting stuff going on with DIX which started out as Sxip 2.0 as an IETF effort, though really changed a good deal lately. They're now talking about using Yadis for service discovery, the Sxip 2.0 authentication (which is loosely based upon OpenID and then enhanced a good deal), and then they're talking about using a very light-weight SAML profile for profile exchange. It all sounds good, though I'm reserving full judgement until I see the actual spec which makes these changes. A little worried about how light they actually can make SAML, though think Dick and John are sincerely doing everything they can to make this all work.

Need to register for a motorcycle class with hachi. Still want to get one since an hour commute sucks. Figure I'll move somewhere like Sunnyvale at some point. Maybe split a place with jproulx and iseebi if they stick around in the area. So many dope houses for not a lot of money down there!

Feels like I should write something about ads on LJ, but I think a lot of other people have already said what I'd say. I understand the reasoning for the Sponsored+ level and I think people want to do cool innovative things, but that we fell short of that for the initial release. So hopefully they will improve the level in the future and actually give free users a real reason to switch to it with an innovative experience that they can't get anywhere else on the web. In the meantime, it is interesting to read no_lj_ads. Also hoping that they follow up on the "whoops" from Brad about the TOS change.

TV now, sleep tonight, paper tomorrow, maybe Guitar Hero with brad and crucially Friday night, boat dive with whitaker on Sunday, and then work on Monday! Woot!

Count me in on that motorcycle class. I just about signed up for the one near Fremont the other day, but have to figure out a time that works.

I can probably swing it sometime in mid-May or early-June, depending on when the classes are. Lemme know.

Ah cool, didn't know you were wanting to as well. On Winnie's reccomendation, and Henry's, we're looking at this place. http://www.motorcycleschool.com/sanfrancisco/index.html I'm thinking June will be the best, May is full anyway.

I didn't read the book and failed the first time on the written test by 1 question. I wish I had the money to get a bike right now :(

MSF class is a good idea. You not only learn how to ride, but it's way easier to get your license that way than to take the DMV tests.

Lemme know if you ever want another for Guitar Hero. I can rock the shit out of that!

My sister was just reading over my shoulder as I read this post and she said:

"What language is that?!"

I laughed.
