This is my (in)activity log. You might like to visit
Productivity a subsidiary of Collabora focusing on LibreOffice support and
services for whom I work.
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. Failing that, there are all manner of interesting things to read on
the LibreOffice Planet news
Stuff Michael Meeks is doing
Enjoyed the lightning talks; though somewhat ad-hoc in
places. Lunch, caught up with Sankar.
On to Gianugo Rabellino's keynote - initially very
dismissive given the apparent Apache role in the Apache ->
Collab.net -> OpenOffice.org -> compound community failure.
Very impressed with Gianugo, and the Open Development model,
I guess it's nice to find someone more articulate and credible -
after all, I have (thus far) totally failed to fix OpenOffice's
horrific community issues - from Apache saying the same things eg.
diversity. Shared some happy beers afterwards. It helps to see
that perhaps the true locus of failure to build real community in Sun's
open-source strategy is closer to home, and not just bad external advice.
Also, somewhat amazed by my first exposure to an E-cigarette, if
you are going to try to poison yourself, this seems like a somewhat
less effective, and yet more interesting way to do it.
Shared taxi's to the airport; flight home, Sandy visiting,

It's also important to realise that I'm not in on the Swedish Conspiracy.
Occasionally people ask for formal photos for conferences
