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
Woken by PR person reminding me of an interview in 40mins
elsewhere - nice job ! lightning dressing, travelling, demo prep
action. Interesting and thought provoking interview, lift with
Ignacio to the conference.
Met up with Jesus - doing cool work with OO.o cross-compilation,
it seems he's really close now, neat. Caught up with Guy; on to Nick's
funky Moblin talk. Quick calls with Kendy & Florian.
Extremely pleased by the Microsoft
action around Mono - personally I think they rock for doing that.
Of course, some will immediately start examining the gift horse's
dental state - while doing that, it is good to examine IBM's
rather similar covenant (NB. cf. the footnotes at the bottom),
and Sun covenant
is (credit where due) the best practice here - though apparently
only available for ODF. Of course - perhaps we should have an arms
race in ever-better, clearer, more comprehensive patent covenants
from big companies around standards. Should the OSI / SLFC have a
stock, recommended text to use ? personally I think the MS one is
briefer and more readable than IBM's, go Microsoft !
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,
