Nope!

So here’s a link to a lovely movie of Google founder Larry Page arrving at Foo Camp this weekend via helicopter. The video and also these photos of the helicopter and Page (and former Googler and Blogger founder Evan Williams) were taken by Scott Beale of Laughing Squid (how does a squid laugh?), a site that says it is dedicated to “art, culture and technology from San Francisco and beyond.”

I wrote a post and did a video yesterday about the annual alpha-geek confab, run by tech publisher Tim O’Reilly, where hundreds come to kibitz about the outer reaches of the future of technology and also, well, camp in tents.

Please see this disclosure related to me and Google.
