Spent some time discussing/arguing free software with RMS today. Was good, I think, all things considered- he’s clearly a bright guy, and though we have major disagreement about tactics and probably some minor disagreements about end goals, I think I understand him better now, and I hope he understands me (and maybe even GNOME) better.

Outside of that, the summit/hackfest has been good. Not perfect- certainly we’ve learned lots of lessons for next time, which I’m writing down tonight and will send to the board and organizational list tonight. But all in all I feel like it’s been useful for me and I hope fun and/or useful for most of the people who came.
