All these posts about Guadec are boring, here is one more !
The travel went smoothly, with planes on time. I met bkor, arturo, alejandro, and a bunch of other people i can’t remember the name at Barcelona, took the train (packed with St. Joan-party people). Of course there were very few taxis at that time, so i couldn’t make it to the party, but some other people never found the party too. I guess the whole town was the party.. Or some kind of Beirut under fire with all those fireworks and people screaming and running around.
First day was relax, got up late, took a bike ride to the university under a shiny sun. Met a nice bunch of people there too, it’s really nice to put a face on the IRC nicks or hackergotchis (which are completely out-of-date for most people, including me)
The night ended up in a little bar with a TV, with all the gnome-hackers to see the end of the Argentina-Mexico match. I’ll try to take some pictures when i have the chance.
One last thing: All the cool people have a 770, i feel old-school and depressed. Donations accepted.
Just before the guadec kick-off Telepathy released a whole lot of cool stuff. Check it out.
You might also want to check the cohoba screenshots, i’m hoping to get it into good shape during this guadec along as “prettifying” it
Can you smell the Web 2.0 hype now ?
