Aside from the tech festivities, I am looking forward to spending a little time getting to know Dublin. Besides being a home brewing nerd, I spent a lot of time in college studying James Joyce and I count Dubliners as one of my favorite books of short stories. I’m a digital packrat, so I have digital copies of all of my college papers, including a couple I wrote about Dubliners:
- “A Prisoner for Life”: Joyce’s Portrayal of the Hopelessly Bourgeois Artist in “A Little Cloud”
- Outcast From Life’s Feast: Joyce’s Characterizations of Self-Absorption in “A Little Cloud” and “A Painful Case”
Perhaps someone out there will draw some inspiration from my own hopelessly bourgeois self-absorbed college writings. 😉
In any case, if you’re in Dublin and want to get together for a pint to chat about tech, beer, or James Joyce, drop me a line (chad -AT- chaddickerson.com) or just come to Mashup Camp and say hello. I’m really looking forward to the trip!
