Another Novell employee blog thing

I now have added nat_feed Nat Friedman's blog</a> to my friends list. Nat Friedman is known as the co-founder of Ximian, along with Miguel de Icaza, but now of course he's a Novell employee. I enjoy reading his blog because his life intersects tangentially with mine. He's got some cool stuff about Utah in his blog.

Interesting story--I was at Brainshare last year (and I will be again this year) at the big developer shindig, and some guy asked me to take a picture of him with some other people. Of course I did. The guy was Miguel de Icaza, and the people included Nat Friedman. Having never seen pictures of them I didn't know who they were until I saw them on stage the next day. I don't think I would have treated them any differently but it was pretty odd all the same. And a good party--the Port of Call is the best bar in Salt Lake City, hands down.
