Free software and the law, day one.
Attendees at Bruce‘s Free Software and the Law Summit.
Things you might not have known that I did not know that I learned about at this summit:
At lunch I left to fly back home.
Joe Shaw taught me to love.
Jacob walking back from 7-11.
Sometimes flash effects can be fun:
Michael Meeks, our knight in shining armor,
off to save the world.
Miguel and I were tragically thwarted in our quest for Rooty Tooty Fresh and Fruity®:
Tomorrow is Bruce Perens’s Free Software and the Law summit. And then I go home. Which is good. I miss the guys in Boston.
On Monday, in the process of demonstrating for a rapt audience the durability of my cell phone, I dropped it onto concrete from height and broke the keypad. The next morning I went out and got one of those Samsung MP3 phones (the Uproar). It’s pretty neat: 64 megs of flash, 10 hours of playtime without a recharge, and surprisingly excellent sound quality. But I need some Linux software that can load the songs onto it. I found a utility for Mac OS X. Maybe someone wants to port it? .
Hey, Joe updated his web site. And here I thought today couldn’t get any better…
Linux World is smaller and slower than it was in February, but our diligent PR firm has managed to make it even more hectic than usual for me: Ximian is doing twenty-four press interviews in a three-day period, and I’m on at least half of those.

A busy morning in San Francisco today:
After all this fun and excitement, I headed down to the Moscone center to check out how the booth setup was going.
Does anyone know why all my pictures look like ass today?
Wow, CNet already has a story from this morning’s interview. That Shankland guy can really haul ass.
Word of the day: diminishing.
Another Miguel/Nat last-minute dash to the airplane this morning. A flight that lasts six and a half hours, with a battery that lasts an hour and a half. All of which leaves me wondering: what the hell kind of award did AmericanWay magazine win?
