ADASS 2002 Trip Report


(Actually, more the overall theme of the Conference).

  • Food at this conference: much better than others (IMHO)

  • Linux (you knew this was coming!) beginning to dominate (laptops, demos); Solaris fading (only one demo was sun based)

  • WEB SERVICES are the wave of the future

  • National Virtual Observatory: progress, everyone working towards same overall goal

  • "Petabyte" no longer a shocking word.

  • Obligatory Group Mugshot
