Every time I go through one of these calls I feel like I come out knowing less about the topic discussed. The topics aren't hard, and I can now follow along and understand most of what they're talking about, but most of the technologies are things I haven't really looked at before. It's interesting, and it's exciting, but it's a little wearying too. The majority of the talks seem to revolve around the use of Amazon EC2 instances, of which I know nothing.
On my own tasks, the semifinal versions of the getall script and the associated documentation got pushed to geowebdns' repository today. I feel pretty good about the changes I made, even if it doesn't prove useful to the current task, I have opened up some small part of someone else's open source program, and that's really cool.
