Watched In Good Company again tonight. I really like this one.
We have a strategy that's very different from everybody else's, and it's community development. The way we say that is with the S curve in all our new literature. It's not for Scott, it's not for Sun, it's for "share." We're grabbing that word and saying, of anybody, we own the word "share." We own that space.
No sharing the sharing, folks!
Speakers are now posted for the conference July 18-19. This will be a fun working event similar to the Boston GNOME Summit, with some talks mixed in.
Finally back home. GUADEC was great this year, and the first Red Hat Summit was a big success as well. I enjoyed Bruce Mau's tour of the Massive Change exhibit and survived crazy stunts like shutting down some New Orleans roads to march the entire conference down the street behind a marching band playing Britney Spears. I was sad to miss GUADEC talks such as DreamWorks and Glynn's retrospective. I'd forgotten about Gnomine embedded in Gnumeric; those were the days.
The main virtue of traveling as far as I can tell is that I get a chance to read books. I picked up Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafón at random, and enjoyed it very much. Great plot (mystery, romance, and all that) and well-written. Highly recommended way to pass some hours.
For the record, there are no kids on the way (despite a series of carefully coordinated blog posts claiming otherwise suspiciously appearing while I was flying over the Atlantic).
Glynn is definitely getting hitched though.
