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
- Got to show before it started; stood at the stand
all day answering questions, did a few presentations of our great
new software management tool 'red-carpet', showed off some of the
nice features in Evolution, and round the rest of the desktop.
- Looked for Simon Tennant from Linuxcare, no sign.
Talked to William from MacMillans about a Gnome 2.0 book. Gave
out scads of 'Monkey mints', beanie monkeys, T-shirts etc.
- Helped pack up the bits of the stand that we are
allowed to clear away. It seems that we are not allowed to
dismantle the stand since the workers are unionized and don't
allow it. Luckily the computer dissasembly co-op, union is riven
with infighting between the power cord unpluggers union and the
boxing union leaving a power vacuum which allowed us to crate up
- Discussed all manner of cool things with Raph
Levian, who as always seems to be in the centre of emerging
graphical grooviness. Owen turned up and we discussed Bonobo in
a fruitless and annoying manner, heh ho.
- Back to the hotel for dinner with Michelle and Jeff
rather pleasant, good food too. Then to bed and Miguel called so
off to have tea with him instead. Nat has flown back early to
Boston to take care of the 'media leads'.
- Really to bed this time.
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,
