When your mom takes you to a conference

Originally uploaded by Liz Henry.

Moomin, bored, at BarCamp Stanford, really didn’t care about social networks, attention streams, user generated content, influence brokers, Drupal, online community building, or any of that stuff.

He played listlessly with his Transformer car and a Bionicles robot named “Poison Ray” until he met another kid, a nerdy 10 year old who gave him the nerve to run up and down the stairs, exploring. They played hide and seek so well that we kept losing them!

My notes from BarCamp are over here at Composite if you’re curious about the slightly … only slightly… more grownup stuff. I believe at some point I invented the Universe.

Actually tonight while Moomin was being especially funny in the bathtub with his godzilla monsters and space starfish, I came up with a brilliant invention, possibly sparked by the idea soup of BarCamp. A bathtub made of soap! Just a humonguous person-sized block of soap carved into a bathtub shape! Then you wouldn’t have to have bars of soap, which inconveniently fall into the tub and get lost. Moomin did not see any problems with my Invention, and I didn’t enlighten him… with him as my barometer of human common sense, maybe I can get some venture capital.

    I can see falling into the tub and getting lost yourself though. You know how soap gets mushy after a while….I am a big fan of hot/cold baths and switching things around so I would like the soap tub first, and then a plain one.

    SJ, you need to be in Japan. Or Turkey. Or ancient Rome.

    This reminds me of when my mom took me to Mensa meetings and Geological Society meetings. Yawn. Although I do remember those times so it probably was better than droning in front of a television. Also, I think I appreciated being allowed to go… like I was an adult.

  5. When your mother takes you to the conference, the life becomes intellectual and wisdom oriented. It is the accepted and recognized aspect of life that it is the on going and proceeding progression. It is the instilled and established form of the betterment and efficient endeavors.

    My mother was teacher and most of the time I was crying to go with her. Some times she taken with me but most of the time she did not take with me because I was a kid and disturbing. But I am not that kid anymore. Reading in a University and working part time with rush essay.
