BeOS & Derivatives "FalterCon 2007 took place on August 11, and it went quite well (IMHO, of course). Here I would like to share my personal impressions of the event, as well as make a few (somewhat) related observations. When the news of the WalterCon cancellation broke out and I read about some people being left with non-refundable air tickets, my first reaction was 'OK, let's do something with these guys'. A few emails later with Mike Summers, Bryan Varner and Urias, we had decided on having a community gathering which, as many of you know, was to later be called FalterCon (yes, pun intended). In approximately two weeks, we found a venue (and a good one!), had this website running, prepared some nice promo material, and were able to gather nine people willing to attend. All in all, I think we did pretty well given the very little time we had."

I wasn't offended... it's just... well, you kind of expect the admin person to rise above that sort of thing, you know what I mean?

It's like I don't expect the CEO of a company to get up on a podium and say something like "Yo dawgs! That's some sh*t we got goin' down, WERD!"

Yes. I know what you mean. Thom doesn't do any sort of "rising above". He reacts. In this case, more or less appropriately.

If you are looking for reasoned responses and restraint, talk to Eugenia. She's opinionated. But the lady has class.

Thom's no CEO. But your sample quote reminds me, oddly, of Darl McBride. ;-)
