This is my (in)activity log. You might like to visit my employer
SUSE 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, off to the LibreOffice dev-room, good to
catch some of Italo's nice overview talk, lots of Lanedo guys, friendly
RedHat faces and key members of the team. Enjoyed Caolan's toolkit /
Gave my: talk on Easy
Hacks: they're easy and they're significant hacks:
Off for a bite of lunch with Caolan, then on to the (packed)
Legal dev-room (with Bradley as bouncer) to catch the end of Allison's
talk. Then gave a talk: Risks and Benefits of Copyright Assignment
Talked to Michael and a Wiki translation chap a little after that,
and rushed off to building K, to see our lovely booth manned & womaned by
a great mix of contributors. Tried to get my demos setup - somewhat
frustrated by a nasty suspend/resume kernel crasher. Gave a talk:
LibreOffice: on-line and in your pocket - with the first Android
prototype screenshots (and demo):
Finally relaxed: bit of an intense day, synched with Dawn, Guy, and
helped a contributor with his build. Wandered to the booth to hand out stickers,
and catch up with the stream of interesting people passing by.
Off to the speakers dinner with Bdale & Keith, whiled away much of
a happy evening together. On to the sudden death to catch up with
Richard Fontana, Andrew Haley, Simon Phipps and more - bed at 4am.

Occasionally people ask for formal photos for conferences
