How do you summarize ten years of your life?

    Herm. The ten year reunion of my year 12 at a swanky private school is coming up, and I was asked to wrrite a summary of what I've been up to in the last decade. I saw no harm in it, so here's what I've got so far:

    Well, I finished a Computer Engineering Degree with first class honours, at University of Canberra, having studied part time for most of it. I then started a part time PhD at ANU in Computer Science. My thesis is currently delayed by general distraction with organizing one of the three globally important Linux developer conferences here in Canberra (http://linux.conf.au).

    During that time, I worked for Aspect Computing (now Kaz, part of Telstra), IPAustralia, and then TOWER Software. I recently interviewed for a position with Microsoft in Seattle, but apparently I'm not geeky enough. I'll wear more pocket protectors next time.

    I got married in 1999, having been engaged for about two years. I now have two kids, a three year old who thinks that xboxes are used for watching streaming video over a network, and a two year old who has his own Macintosh. My wife, Catherine, is an extremely patient person, who also has a computer. At last count I had eleven computers in the house.

    What else should I say? What else does one say in these things? They didn't provide any samples, so I'm not really sure. Let me know if you have any ideas.
