Painting the Bikeshed at BSDCan 2007

Ben and I spoke at BSDCan last weekend up in Ottawa and had a great time hanging out with the FreeBSD folks. One of the cool surprises at the conference, was that we met Poul-Henning Kamp. The Subversion project has been talking about his famous bikeshed post for years now, and Ben and I make explicit mention of it in our Poisonous People talk for the last year. Poul-Henning attended our talk and we wound up talking with him for a few hours afterwards--he's a great guy and we even got our picture taken with him wearing his "no bikesheds" shirt:
