Red Hat (cool)

I’m at the Red Hat summit in Boston. I’ve met loads of cool people I’ve only ever talked to on IRC, and it’s been great to drink beer with them in person. I’ve been staying with Ray and Mo, and they’ve really made me feel really welcome for the last few days, which I really appreciate. I’m not one to normally get emotional, but deciding to work for Red Hat was probably one of the best decisions I have ever made. Red Hat, ROCK ON.
