Arrived in Chemnitz

After a 15 hour trip (9 via plane, 6 via train), I finally made it to Chemnitz, Germany, where an other event is held. Well, I just popped in, when nearly the entire buffet of the social event was cleaned up. As said: I have a good timing ;)

At least I will have nearly two full days to recover, when I get home on Monday, before I need to depart again to Hanover for CeBIT.

Thanks again for the invitation to Beijing, it was really nice to meet all you guys there.

Not as funny as...

...the other food they served us, but at least it smiles back and doesn't just stare at you:

funny food smiling back

Seems I have been to pessimistic:

I finished my talk 30 Minutes ago and got three mails thanking for my "clearly explaination in [my] speech" or "the wonderful and interesting talk on what we can do to help Debian".

To do:
  • collect feedback
  • merge Information about QA and CDDs which where covered by own talks and therefore aren't covered in my talk
  • transfer the half written TeX-Paper to sgml or xml, upload it to Debian Documentation project
  • Get in contact with the guy who did a similar talk recently an CONSOL in Mexico, see what he found to be important.
  • revise and upload my talk

Any other hints?

My very own talk...

...was not really bad, but not as good as possible. Actually, I think I shouldn't use the word "good" at all.

I thought that delivering a talk about "HOW TO help Debian" would be a nice idea - especially since Debian Developers are not that common here in Asia as they are back home in Europe or in the USA.

I still think it is an interesting topic, but for various reasons I was bad prepared. As I mentioned previously so When I did the first dry run, it took my roughly 2 hours - a little bit to long for a 45 Minute talk :(

So I spend most of the night with restructuring and shortening my talk. And I fell to the other extreme - I shorted it a bit to much, removing some nice examples. Well actually I thought there would be more questions after the talk, but there seems to be a cultural difference.

More funny food

After the bugs yesterday - only a squashed fried bug is a good bug - today they served amongst other things duck skin (tastes nice with sugar), duck bone soup (didn't liked that), a sweet sour fish (including hat and tail, if you turned it right, you could see his eyes) and duck brain (tastes salty and is quite small).

And they promised us more funny food for tomorrow :-)
