Not as funny as...

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

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.
