people are fuzzy objects, but they are also very cold

I am having a lovely time at an international geek conference in Boston this week. There are many people with facial hair and their flies down, many many absentminded misplacements of cell phones and glasses, and earnestly nerdy discussions of 3NF, 4NF, 5NF, SOA, BI, DM, ISO, DMBOK, ER, XML, BPMN, MDM, SQL, DMI, ERP, DW, ETL, DDL, EA, ITIL, and a heck of lot of other acronyms that sound really quite clever.

Favorite quote so far: (shouted excitedly by an older gentleman during a technical discussion) "People are fuzzy objects!"

Is that some sort of cypher your readers are supposed to decode? Actually i recognize the last one as the capital of ancient Khazaria. ;)

I once took a computer course at University and the girl who sat behind me told our tutor the oddest thing once that you have just reminded me of. She said, 'Please sir, I have a fuzzy login.'

Craig: no need to decipher... if you did, you'd probably fall asleep :)

Leo: ha ha ha! sounds like a contemporary version of Oliver Twist for some reason...

I just don't get why nerds should ever misplace their glasses. Excepting showers & sleep, those suckers should be planted on their faces at all times!
