76 - Geeks


Been at the Geek Dinner in Ghent, Belgium, last night january 20-th, 2005. Done that, but didn't get the t-shirt. Who cares. Instead we socialized, and at least VH learned alot. The report can be found at LVB.net, Maarten, and Smetty, and Forret. Sortof cyber-incest, bloggers blogging bloggers.

We got a taste of the strange world of podcasters, and we were paid a drink by the CEO of a well known IT provider and company Bart (CEO of Belgacom Skynet) a remarkable whizkid and genuine geek that founded skynetblogs (it's still the best, VH never gets javascript errors on here). Skynet is around for 10 years, and in the IT world, that sounds as long as an ice age period.
Finally, last but not least, got a pleasant drive home with Bvh.

Technology is fun (we are Geeks, after all) but content is still the winner. May you all offer good and better content, beyond the HTML, js and php stuff. Nice meeting u all! (sorry for those I forgot, I will try to blogroll u).

Let me express my thanks too to the whole world that apparently downloaded my "geeks song". I got 130 Gig on my domain visualhugo in just 5 days, effectively knocking me out of the air for a while. All external media links on this site to visualhugo won't work for a while. Bandwidth, the final frontier. Somebody has to pay for it, and in this case it was me ;-).

Photo: (click to enlarge) didn't know what photo to put on here, so this is just a Photoshop mount based on one of my model stock pictures.
