For the next two days, I will have a guest blogger to post updates from the Argon Express. This guest blogger has been known to hang out in #planetargon as allisbe and is the Creative Director at PLANET ARGON.

Some of the passengers should be getting into Portland this afternoon and we leave in less than 4 hours!

A tough decision

Due to some fairly complex personal issues that have surfaced in the past week or so, I finally decided that I needed to cut back on a few of my professional engagements. This morning I made the decision that I will not be able to speak at RailsConf. I’m still going and plan to have a blast but I haven’t had the mental capacity all week to finish preparing for the talk and it was causing me quite a bit of stress. We all have our limits and I decided to side with personal sanity. :-)

Chad said they’ll make it work out and I’ll be more than happy to talk about legacy integration with Ruby on Rails while at the conference.

Sometimes I have to remind myself that I’m human and can’t work like a robot. ;-)

  1. Alain Bloch
  2. Brian Ford
  3. Chris Anderson
  4. Dave Goodlad
  5. Jamie Macey
  6. Jason Watkins
  7. Jeremy Hubert
  8. Jeremy Voorhis

This should be pretty fun… and I’ll try to take a ton of photos and share any interesting stories from the trip.

I expect to do a lot of reading, writing in my personal journal, talking shop with many of these people, and enjoying the sights. :-)

While talking to a client in our office this afternoon… I glanced at my email and it seems that I got accepted to speak at RailsConf 2006! About ten minutes later… Jeremy said that he also got accepted to speak at RailsConf!

We’re also speaking next month at Canada on Rails. :-)

The title of my talk is… “Sneaking Rails through the (legacy) System.”

How are we getting there? By train of course!
