Why am I so upset?

You know, I am excited about ShmooCon. In fact, I’m very excited. That said, I’m also a bit sad, as digunix pointed out a conflict of interest that’s left me unresolved…

You see, we’re scheduled to speak at the con on Saturday, Jan 14th at 3pm. Unfortunately, shortly after we got notification that our talk was accepted, The Shmoo updated their schedule and much to my dismay, my friend Jon Callas is also speaking at the same time on the same day. Herein lies the problem — no matter what happens, I’m bound to be a little frustrated by the outcome.

Jon Callas, as many of you might know, is the CTO of PGP. He’s a security rockstar and a damn brilliant fellow. Plus, he’s one of The Shmoo. So, if everyone attends his talk instead of ours, well, I’ll be sad. Conversely, because Jon is a friend of mine (and someone who’s opinions and skills I have tremendous respect for), if people attend our talk instead of his, I’ll be sad. Further, this means that I’m going to miss his talk while I’m giving mine! :(
Maybe, best case scenario, we’ll both get half of each other’s crowd, and the attendees of each talk can move between the two rooms at regular intervals. Hey, I can dream, right? And hell, 3pm’s a great time slot — much better than having the slot right after lunch, or at the end of the day, or early Sunday morning for that matter!
