Melbourne calling

My time in Melbourne is almost at an end. Thanks to everyone who sent tips on places to go and things to see here. Most of my activities, as evidenced by my Flickr pics, have revolved around food. I must get around to writing it all up on Principia Gastronomica.

I took some time out from my culinary explorations to give a talk at the local Web Standards Group meetup. It was fun. I recycled my talk from d.Construct, The Joy of API. People seemed to enjoy it and there were a lot of great questions asked afterwards.

The audio from the talk at d.Construct is now available through the podcast. I’ve had the audio transcribed — using Casting Words — and I’ve posted the results here.

Sydney to Melbourne

Jessica and I will be leaving the confines of Sydney to explore a little more of Australia. We’ll be coming to Melbourne next week.

We’re leaving Sydney on Wednesday at 11am, arriving in Melbourne at 12:30. We’ll stay until Saturday, when we’ll fly out of Melbourne at 11am to arrive back in Sydney at 12:20.

Melbournites, get in touch. I’ve met plenty of you over the last few days, and I figured a quick blog post would be easier than a mass mailout. Sitepoint people, WSG people, general geeks, leave a comment and let me know about places to stay, places to eat, and places to drink. See you all soon in what I’ve heard is the culinary capital of Australia.
