This is my (in)activity log. You might like to visit my employer
Novell which is an amazing company, and also
Dell who in days of yore provided me with a
free laptop for Gnome development / conferences.
Also if you have the time to read this sort of stuff you could enlighten
yourself by going to Unraveling Wittgenstein's net or if
you are feeling objectionable perhaps here.
Stuff Michael Meeks is doing
- Up early; breakfast with Jakub, Tigert and Miia, rather good.
Then off the the expo, then a shopping mall. We got tickets for a 3D +
motion show, and went to look at a games arcade. There was a wonderful
'DDR' game that allowed you to dance to a certain set of steps scrolled
onto the screen ( in time with a selection of music ). It was excellent fun,
although only Miia and myself were brave enough to have a go. The best
thing was that both sexes seemed to be enjoing the game which was nice,
along with its rather pleasing lack of blood and gore. 3D thing was Ok.
- Trip round Seoul, wandered round an old palace; loads of almost
identical [ except for the size ] buildings. Interestingly it seems the
Confucion view of women was somewhat unenlightened, and the view of
marriage involved living and sleeping apart most of the time. Lots of
granite everywhere; everything is made of it. Then a folk museum about
the ordinary Korean, and on to a cheap market, then to the top of a
hill with a tower and on home.
- Out for dinner with the gang; most interesting conversations,
set next to an ex Vietnameese and a Chineese guy. Also, got to know Eric
Raymond slightly better. Lots of amazing Korean food, an endless supply
of bowels and dishes bursting with new tastes.
- Back, and spent far too long trying to upgrade a load of
sadly broken machines, extremely silly. Bed 2.00am.
In case it's not painfully obvious: the reflections reflected here are my
own; mine, all mine ! and don't reflect the views of Novell, The
Lithuanian Gov't or Arnold Schwarzenegger. It's also important to
realise that I'm not in on the Swedish Conspiracy.
Occasionally people ask for formal photos for conferences,
