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 somewhat later, caught some of Bjoern's reflections on UX, then
did some lightning talks - for myself just pointing people towards the
LibreOffice bug triage
starter page, and demoing triaging a bug, live. Followed by a series of fine
talks, with suitable ad-hoc nature.
Helped a new volunteer get his machine setup and building LibreOffice,
it seems that if the submodules magic fails during checkout the error messages
are rather less than helpful. Caught the end of Norbert's how-to-do-an-easy-hack
demo / talk.
Discussed spreadsheet design with an interesting chap at lunch, and
on to Lionel's Improving LibreOffice with Money talk; the punch-line - pay a
consultancy (like Lanedo) to implement your pet feature; enjoyed Alexander &
Florian's infrastructure talk.
Then a final board / summary talk - no questions, failed to ask
intelligently enough how we can improve the next conference; then again
this one was so smoothly run by Jaqueline, Fries Office Deutchland e.v.
and others that it seems hard to know how to improve. Cor pre-armed the
audience for a rather enjoyable elastic band fight at the end.
Out for an Italian meal, via witnessing a nasty car collision into
a lady on a bike and waiting with Markus for the police to arrive. On to
c-base for some drinks, and a tour of the private area - back to bed

In case it's not painfully obvious: the reflections reflected here are my
own; mine, all mine ! and don't reflect the views of SUSE, Novell, The
Document Foundation, Spaghetti Hurlers (International), or anyone else.
It's also important to realise that I'm not in on the Swedish Conspiracy.
Occasionally people ask for formal photos for conferences
