It Happened to Me

Photos from the OPML Meetup

Boss Ross took a number of photos for his moblog, including this one of the signs I made up:

By the way, that little foam rubber cow in the upper right-hand corner of the pic is Tucows‘ most-coveted piece of swag: The Squishy Cow! We handed some out after the meeting last night.

Amber MacArthur moblogged some photos too, including Ross playing the part of “Tattoo”:

“The markup language! The markup language!”

…while I was the suave and tanned “Mr. Roarke”:

“Smiles, everyone! Smiles!”

(If the above pop culture references mean nothing to you, you’re either too damned young or I’m too damned old.)

One reply on “Photos from the OPML Meetup”

I have a squishy cow at my lab, JUST like that one, and it’s NOT a Tucows cow.

It’s a Gibco cow. Gibco is a company that sells some supplies for cell biology research. Specifically, they sell growth medium and supplements to culture mammalian cells in dishes. More specifically, they sell a very necessary component: “fetal bovine serum” that practically all cells need to grow healthy, and which, as the name suggests, comes from COWS. Hence the squishy cows. It’s funny, in a sad OMG-poor-cow way.
