MacHack 18 Just Weeks Away 26

Posted by CmdrTaco
from the blatantly-abusing-my-authority dept.
We don't usually post announcements of this sort, but with MacHack just weeks away, and me speaking at it again this year, I figured I'd remind readers of Slashdot's Apple section about it. It's in Dearborn, MI near Detroit, and I gotta say that I've gone to many tech shows, but this is a good show. For those of you who saw my Keynote last year, my talk this year promises to be at least as incoherent, except that THIS year I might actually talk about the Mac! Other speakers are far more qualified. ;)

    In case you are going to actually make a presentation (Powerpoint/Keynote/Impress), is it going to be available for download? I do not think I will want to fly all the way from west-coast to...Dear... born... a.c.

    Unlike certain other conferences [rubi-con.org] held in Dearborn.

      I'm not so sure of that. Cons like this seem to be getting far more press than ones which, while they might not be bigger, certainly have a longer history and delve far deeper technically. Where I'm from, we have several hack fests that have recently ticked over into a decade of existence, and aren't stuck on the one platform. Basically if it's UNIX based you're in and can hack away. A weekend of true technical geekery is a fascinating thing to behold!

    Last year's was a landmark because it was so heavily OS X focused. However, I think this year's may be even more remarkable, since there has been such a huge influx of *nix users buying Macs lately.

    I look forward to the diversity that the collaboration of two distinct groups of hackers has to offer.

    goes to the first person to give me a version of screen that works with OS X like it does with Linux (ctrl + alt + F* gives you a new virt term).
    • Yeah, that would be cool, but OS X's text console seems a bit slow.

        They should accelerate it with Quartz Extreme ;-P

          That should be "insightful", not "funny". My comments are supposed to be "funny". :-P

          Anyway, I agree. The Terminal app is slow too. Ironically, I now use rxvt when I need a terminal, because Apple's X implementation is so nice and fast.

          Maybe my posts are moderated funny in Soviet Russia?

    Good to hear you'll be back, Rob. Developers need to understand more about the nuances of The Sims.

    Anybody got a link to a transcript of speech mr. taco gave last year. I remember there was a story about it but by the time I click on the link it was no longer functional.

    Thanks
  • Someone needs to stream it. I hear Taco did a great little dance. Something about his girlfriend trying to get an Airport signal.

It is better to give than to lend, and it costs about the same.
