Doth He Protest Too Much?

Published 13 years, 2 months ago

Having just finished a “makeshift Matrix tour” of Sydney (thanks for all your fine research work, Amber!) on a fine, clear Sunday afternoon, I’ve stopped back at my hotel for a little relaxation and internet time.  Upon surfing through the WE05 tagspaces at Flickr and Technorati, I discovered that a whole lot of people mentioned being amused by having seen me or even posted pictures of me on Thursday morning during the mass evacuation, crouched on a sidewalk with my laptop open and balanced atop my briefcase.  As one person put it, I was “…crouching outside the venue with his laptop out on his knees trying to get on Wifi!”

Okay, folks, let me clear this up right now: I was not looking for wifi.  I was actually trying to help Kaz by looking for a file I hoped was on my hard drive.  It wasn’t, sadly, so we’ll have to swap e-mail later on to get some things straightened out.

That’s not to say I didn’t check for wifi while I had the computer open, of course.
