I hate airports. Not flying, flying I love. But the process of dealing with airlines, and luggage, and most especially the TSA/Security Theater aspect of the process drives me crazy. I flew down to SJC this week for a technical conference, MySQLConf. It was a great conference: I met neat people, I learned new things, I got excited about tech again. I loved that part. The flight down was fine. Easy, no problem through the airport. Only the usual anxiety about the process.
