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 in the hotel, off to hear Stallman
speak. I don't like working on Sundays - but its hard to know what
to do really.
- Stallman on patents, a relatively interesting
perspective. Then off for a series of discussions with Erwann about
Bonobo ref-counting, Bill Haneman on Bonobo for accessibility
information transport, Mathieu to clarify where I think Bonobo should
- Darin's Nautilus talk - an entertaining talk, too short,
not enough demo ware. Caught the tail end of the Chema & Lauris'
- Lunch with DV, learned about XSLT - interesting.
- Talked to Owen and Tim with Paolo about Perl bindings,
seemed to aggree everything pretty quickly, including moving the
Perl bonobo sugar wrappers into GNOME::Bonobo. Talked about cunning
ways of trying to reduce the typing neccessary for CORBA.
- Talked to Darin for a while about various issues in
Bonobo, luckily most of them known and non-controversial - excellent,
determined to do a new Bonobo release ASAP.
- Had a short, but intense mind dump to Havoc about my
scheme for a beautiful, small & simple CORBA based GConf API,
re-using ORB cunningness - understood each other better.
- On the train back discussed focus issues with Federico
and Owen ( who claims there is no problem in Gtk+'s plug/socket :-).
Nicely productive though, got a lead.
- Indian food, and then back to the hotel for some lobby
milling actions. Played with porting some of gnome-db to
BonoboXObject to show Rodrigo how it goes - inevitably he uses a
custom servant :-)
- Said g'night to all the guys - bed at midnight. Worked
all day - very bad news.
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,
