WordPress BayCon 2005

BayCon is one of the five largest regional annual science fiction and fantasy conventions in the United States, and has been held annually since 1982.” With a program schedule that includes everything from “People for the Ethical Treatment of Mars” to “Historical Swordfights – How They Were Done” to “Belly Dancing Workshop.” Well I just got word that WordPress will be joining the party with a WordPress BoF at 1 PM on Sunday in the Chardonnay Room. I’ll be there and I promise not to try out any of the belly dancing I learned the previous day.

Band Of Followers? (BOF)

(Now has a mental picture of what I’d imagine Matt would be like Belly Dancing!)

……(Replaces the mental picture with an image of fast cars and fast women…..but there’s something jigging about in the background….damnit! *Laughs*)

From dictionary.com:

“/B-O-F/ or /bof/ n. 1. [common] Abbreviation for the phrase “Birds Of a Feather” (flocking together), an informal discussion group and/or bull session scheduled on a conference program. It is not clear where or when this term originated, but it is now associated with the USENIX conferences for Unix techies and was already established there by 1984. It was used earlier than that at DECUS conferences and is reported to have been common at SHARE meetings as far back as the early 1960s.”

Now let there be no more fire-breathing geeks or references to the old Batman series ;P
