I just want to say that I’m looking forward to german beer and the company of good friends in a couple weeks, and I’m really grateful for the hard work that has been put in to GUADEC- I’ve peeked into the process a bit more this year than in past years and it is impressive.

The ever delicious but now sadly-bimonthly NTK today described neooffice as being “for those in interested in software that is ‘free as in – oh shiny thing'”. That cracked me up for some reason.

`Bhaskar’ Ghose on IRC pointed me at Planet India, which is a pretty cool read. The energy Linux could (does?) have in a place like India is sort of mind-boggling, and it is cool to see things like Planet India that can let me peek into that. Apparently the event formerly known as Linux Bangalore is getting even more ambitious, which is cool too- I’d kill to make it this year; I had to pass it up the past two years because of budget, schedule, and vacation plans, but hopefully this year will be different.
