When Matt Simmons recruited me to join the Blog Team for LISA10, I a young sysadmin who had recently outgrown the small department where I worked.

There was more content than I could possibly attend in a six-day span.

Well, it's been a long, full week and it's time for me to leave the chilliness of Seattle for the chilliness of Brooklyn. I find that the more I learn at a conference, the more tiring it tends to be as my brain desperately tries to process everything while running on not nearly enough sleep (as I said to fellow blogger Hugh, my brain is over).
