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; off to London today to discuss what
a technical contribution might be at the Law Society. Read
up on the subject on the way - stunned at how excellent the
European Parliament's proposal is.
- Chewed E-mail on the train. Got to Chancery Lane
in the end - rather a pleasant setting; weighed alternative
suggested definitions of Technical Contribution for
2 hours, much of that intense reading / discussion. Most
interestingly the IP lawyers present - very in favour of
broadening patent law to cover everything. Encouraging how
many, in some cases articulate & intelligent lay-people
were there to put a more workable view. Nice to know the
government policy is to not allow very general S/W &
Business process patents.
- Talked to some of the UKPO people afterwards,
nice to know Linux is deployed & there are users
there. Out for a sandwich afterwards with a group of
people - interesting. Back on the train afterwards.
- More mail / reading. Improved Martin's mono
build / install setup; almost usable by the casual
ooo-builder. Bed early with the sweetheart.
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,
