My Berkshire Hathaway transcript and pictures are available.

I'm still recovering from the insanity that was Berkshire Hathaway 2007. It's like a five day hangover.

First off, welcome to all of my new readers. I suspect the majority of you are Berkshire Hathaway fans, and thus you might be interested in my attempt at a transcript of the six hour Q&A session (that I must say would do my court reporting stepmother Therese proud). Unfortunately, since I was not in the press booth this year, I was relegated to battery power. I shut down every service on my laptop except the text editor and dimmed the screen until it was almost pitch black. I managed to keep the machine running until 30 minutes until the end, at which time I switched to the paper and pencil I had on standby. I don't write nearly as fast as I type, so things trail off towards the end. If you're interested in reading the transcript, the Motley Fool put it up on their website for free. It wasn't completely edited at that point, but people were valuing speed over quality when it went up.

I also uploaded the rest of my pictures from the weekend. If you're interested, you can find them here, along with 2006 and 2005.

I hope you enjoy.
