CeBIT - Day 1

Our booth is ready, the net connection is set up and running, I got a couple of hours sleep and the first invitations. Debian is ready for CeBIT.

I took some first pictures. Sorry about the quality, my camera is not the best:

CeBIT Special DVD we made with the help of the LinuxUser magazine

If I take more pictures, I will upload them to my gallery as usual.

BTW: I hate it, to live in a banana republic.

Arrived today at the CeBIT

This is the first year, where Debian will have its very own booth. I arrived a couple of hours ago, and builded our booth. Looks nice, and Internet connection is (as you can see) available, too. And it's fast - especially compared to the "broadband" connection of the Hotel in Peking ;)

Beside a small misunderstanding with Byteaction and Fujitsu-Siemens, who offered us some hardware, it everything went very smooth.

I'll take some pictures tomorrow and keep you up to date.

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:

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?
