I was there, but I didn't talk. Didn't sit around either.
Yes... I stood behind people.
And then, I came back. With a somewhat odd feeling at the back of my mind. Somehow, unlike all the other years, this year it felt more like a JNU event, rather than an ILUG-D event. What with the focus shifting off software into the rather vague (for me) realms of freedom. Maybe it was the conclave or the dinners, it didn't scream out ILUG-D like it used to - but that may not be a bad thing, per se.
Shall just have to wait and watch.--
In this country we enjoy many freedoms; freedom of speech, freedom of thought and indeed, the freedom to do neither.
