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 - groan - need more sleep.
- Got to show, patient mail from J, she is coming - horay.
- Bedlam started, concentrated on media people today, gave
out press kits, got cards, shoved CDs into peoples hands. Did some
beautiful demos of Evolution - it's just so slick, so many nice little
features, E-table etc. etc.
- Pizza for lunch on the fly, important Demos with the
Lady from Sun, and her sidekick - totaly blown away by Evolution,
- Knocked off to find a peaceful place to write my talk
for tommorow in and harden the demos if possible. Discovered that
in order to win a 'Best of Show' award you have to register your
product ! - whacked out [ talked to the Judges deliberating in
the speakers room ]. Caught Linus exchanging baby photos with
some other guy there - the "My Baby" backdrop effect.
- Spewed some mail.
- Sat in the corner trying to avoid stuff and work on
my talk - Ashley ( not her name ) [ Mi Yong ] Kim turned up all
the way from Korea just to see me ( or perhaps the show ) which
was lovely to catch up. She's very sweet.
- Show finished, limo to hotel [ ripped off again ],
and then, attempting to follow a conflation of misleading
directions to 'the best pizza place in Manhatten' discovered
some place - upon asking it transpired it wasn't the best pizza
place in manhatten, however the guy at the stove was happy to
confess this so I was sold.
- Back to the hotel to hack on a talk, spent a long
time writing a nice long mail to J whom I have been tragicaly
neglecting during the show.
- Hacked on my presentation, off to Kinko's to print
and photocopy stuff, bed 1.30am.
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,
