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, packed - breakfast with Martin & then Damon,
talked about KDE's direction, the importance of investment, and
standards and the possibility of KDE using / co-developing Bonobo.
- Off to the conference, very interesting IPV6 talk,
interesting that although the address space is mostly used up,
there are only ~160 million always on addresses. Mobile devices
need always on addresses to remain connected - not thought of that -
1 bn Indians - that's a lot - India has 3 class B addresses for the
whole country, China has only 8m IP addresses. 18*10^18 addresses
per person on the planet. A talk canceled.
- Rama did a Zope talk, and it was lunch time. Met Ravi
who had been on the other track and got up late.
- Franticaly finalized my talk, remembered to talk about
Medusa and demo it.
- Talk went ok, managed to overrun rather substantialy.
Then onto Damian Conway, an excellent talk on the direction of Perl,
Perl 6 - what might be in it, sounds nice, didn't realize that the
Perl people were seriously upset by Sun's Java - strange.
- Wandered around saying goodbye to all the people,
discovered that the Ximian CDs did in fact escape customs eventualy
and got snapped up instantly. Got a taxi to the airport with a Wrox
guy, met a nice Italian Nun on the plane - most interesting, having
been on a Hindu wigwam (or something), strange.
- Arrived in Bombay and sat in the infested airport, met
some David chap from Germany, a professional tennis player on his
way back to Italy, interesting guy.
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,
