Desktop Summit Berlin 2011
I am currently at the Desktop Summit in Berlin. This being my first Desktop Summit (or GUADEC for that matter) I have been keeping myself busy with putting faces to lots of IRC nicks.
I met Will Thompson, Sjoerd Simons, Stef Walter and Guillaume Desmottes from #telepathy; Edward Harvey from #gstreamer, Christoph Wickert and Thorsten Leemhuis from Fedora. By some lucky chance I ran into Claudio Saavedra, Ivan Frade and Joone Hur who were on the same Air Berlin flight from Helsinki as me. It was also nice to see a good number of hackers from India present at the conference and lots of new faces at that. Among the old timers it was great to catch up with Pradeepto Bhattacharya and Ritesh Khadgaray.
