We met for breakfast at 9:45, both Seth and I had a good night’s sleep at the end of breakfast we went to get our respective laptops and arrived just in time to catch the last hotel shuttle to CPMX.

Arriving there we checked our equipment and we entered into Campus Party in all its glory. We toured the different sections, attended the conference about the history of the Venus transit in front of the Sun, which gave Ernesto Juarez Davis, and at the end we made another short trip. Ernesto and Seth met and chatted briefly. Then we went to eat at catering (although I, in particular, didn’t liked the stew) from there we went to a station to connect our machines and enjoy the enormous bandwidth of the network “campusera”.

At last, I was able to check my email, download photos I took during the event and even I could write a brief entry for my blog.

The next event of interest was “how to create your own intergalactic fleet” a workshop to learn how to make spaceships using waste material; Seth and I went to try to learn something, but there was no specific person to explain the process, there were several people who told the audience what to do and provided the necessary materials, but this was not very interesting if you were not actively participating in the workshop. So, after a while we decided to do another tour to see what was happening in the other sections (actually we saw the game “Street Fighter” and there we learned that Seth has a “namesake” as a character in that game).

Again we were back to connect to the network and be ready to Seth’s talk.

Fifteen minutes before the talk there were many people sitting in the astronomy section, waiting for the chat to began. Five minutes earlier, Seth had everything ready and it was only a matter of waiting indication to start.

The talk began at 5:30 sharp, and it was a really good talk (as usual with Seth’s talk this one was enlightening and funny) you can watch the talk here.

After the talk and question/answer section, there was a surprise for the public there, because Donald James, from NASA Ames Research Center, was giving an impromptu talk at that very moment.

Donald’s talk was very entertaining and inspiring, I wish that more people could have been there watching and listening because this talk was a success.

At the end there were many people wanting to ask questions and take pictures with both Seth and with Donald.

After 7 pm Seth was ready for dinner and return to the hotel. We went to dinner at a Mexican restaurant, there were roasted duck, squash blossom quesadillas and barbacoa, Seth was delighted with the dinner.

Finally we were back to the hotel to rest and to get ready to leave the hotel the next day, in which Seth would return to California.

Saludos,

Continuando con mi narración de mis experiencias en Campus Party México, el segundo día iba a ser la charla de Seth a las 5:30pm.

Nos vimos para desayunar a las 9:45, tanto Seth como yo tuvimos una buena noche de sueño; al terminar el desayuno fuimos por nuestras respectivas laptops y llegamos justo a tiempo para alcanzar el último transporte del hotel a CPM.

Llegando ahí nos registramos nosotros, nuestros equipos y nos adentramos, ahora sí a Campus Party en todo su esplendor. Recorrimos las diferentes secciones, asistimos a la conferencia sobre el tránsito de Venus, que dio Ernesto Juarez Davis, y al terminar hicimos otro breve recorrido. Ernesto y Seth se conocieron y charlaron brevemente. Después fuimos a comer al catering del evento (aunque a mi, en lo particular, no me gustó mucho el guisado) de ahí fuimos a una de las estaciones para conectar nuestras máquinas y disfrutar del enorme ancho de banda de la red “campusera”.

Ahora si me fue posible revisar mis correos, descargar fotos que tomé dentro del evento e incluso pude escribir una breve entrada para mi blog.

El siguiente evento de interés era “cómo crear tu propia flota intergaláctica” un taller para aprender a hacer naves espaciales usando material de desecho; Seth y yo nos acercamos para tratar de aprender algo, pero no hubo una persona en específico que explicara el proceso, hubieron varias personas que explicaban a los asistentes qué hacer y les proporcionaban los materiales necesarios -pero esto no resulta muy interesante si no te encuentras participando activamente en el taller. Así pues -después de un rato- nos decidimos a hacer otro recorrido para ver qué ocurría en las otras secciones y en las áreas de exposición (de hecho vimos el juego de “Street Fighter” y ahí se enteró Seth de que tiene un “tocayo” como personaje en ese juego).

Una vez más regresamos a conectarnos a la red y estar listos para la charla de Seth.

Quince minutos antes de la charla ya habían bastantes personas sentadas en la sección de astronomía, aguardando el momento de la charla. Cinco minutos antes, Seth ya tenía todo listo y solo era cuestión de esperar la indicación para comenzar.

Después de la charla y la sección de preguntas/respuestas hubo una sorpresa para el público presente, pues Donald James, del Centro de Investigación Ames de la NASA, dio una charla sorpresa en ese momento.

La charla de Donald fue muy amena e inspiradora, a mi me hubiera gustado que más gente hubiera escuchado esta charla, fue todo un éxito.

Al final hubo mucha gente deseando hacer preguntas y tomarse fotos, tanto con Seth como con Donald.

Después de las 7 de la noche Seth estaba listo para ir a cenar y regresar al hotel. Fuimos a cenar a un restaurante de comida mexicana, hubo tostadas de pato, quesadillas de flor de calabaza y barbacoa, Seth quedó encantado con la cena.

Finalmente regresamos al hotel, a descansar para prepararnos a dejar el hotel al día siguiente, en el que Seth regresaría a California.
