Dum dee dum, just hanging around the European Conference on Computer Supported Co-op… OMG LOOK AT THOSE CUTE DUCKS!

The 10th European Conference on Computer Supported Co-operative Work was held in Limerick, Ireland, and as you'd expect there were a lot of speakers and breakout sessions and... oh my God, look at those cute ducks!

    Is this a meta post on the importance of the auto-poster sanity-checking entries where duplicates are involved?

    No really, it was like that.  One minute I'm walking along to the conference dinner with some geeky fellows talking about proxy servers and the like,  then a couple of seconds later they 've all whipped out their cameras and started saying things like 'oOOOOooo' while running after the cute duckies.   I suspect that the 'rubber duckie' phenomena evidenced by Burt and Ernie of sesamme street has its basis in strong behavioural drives of geeky fellows
