Holy cow, I wrote a book!
messed up her leg
you can see her on
ScooterCam-1 at TechEd 2007.
The best part of the name ScooterCam-1 isn't the ScooterCam;
it's the 1.
That just gives it that extra little kitchy space technology feel
that turns a good name into a great name.
Anyway, she asked around if somebody with a car with an automatic
transmission would be willing to swap with her manual transmission car
until her leg got better.
To me, driving a stick shift is like changing a flat tire:
It's something that everybody should know how to do,
but it's not something that anybody is expected to enjoy doing.
I offered my car and (long boring part of story deleted)
we met at her place and exchanged keys.
I got into her car,
backed out of the parking space, and... stalled right in front of her.
Great job there.
I really know how to instill confidence.
