Giving a hand at FlashForward

Last week the finalists for the upcoming FlashForward 2003 San Francisco where announced. To my big surprise, geoTracker was in the nominee list!!! wohooo!

This was my last week at work, hence the lack of updates. It's been a little bit crazy trying to finish up with all tasks that I suddenly got assigned to. Of course, couldn't finish much, and will still have to brush up some stuff during the weekend and probably Monday.

What's next? hummm...to be announced later:) In the meantime I am taking a whole month off. I was planning to make it to San Francisco for the conference before, but as soon as I got the good news, I got so excited about it that I contacted the organizers and volunteered for the event. Luckily enough they still had some open places and they took me right away.

I'll be the tall guy standing on the entrace of the QA sessions during 27 & 28th checking for your conference pass. If you happen to see me, don't hesitate to say hi:)

It's a bummer because of my duties there I'll be missing a lot of very intersting sessions, like Nigel Pegg's "Advanced Component Development", Sam Wan's "Collaborative E-Learnig", and Phillip Torrone's "Content Creation for Devices and Phones". Was really looking forward to listen what have they been up to all this time. But well, anyways, hopefully some people will tape these sessions, and I can always read the presentation material they usually put online after the conference.

I really look forward to meeting everyone over there.

Oh yes, don't forget to cast your vote for geoTracker over here!

Hi Marcos -

Congratulations on the success you've been having with geoTracker. I was impressed when I first saw it, and now it is getting awards and nominations all over the place. Great job.

It looks like we might just miss each other. I was going to give you a shout because I will likely be back in Tokyo in March. But if you're going to be in SF, then we'll have to get together some other time.

Good luck in SF -

Hi John, longtime!
How's everything been going?
Bummer, yeah, I was planning to leave during the first week of march. I'll drop you a line anyways when I come back just in case you're still hanging around.

Thanks a lot for your comments.

Hope to see you soon,
