Allan's talk @ SINFO XX?

How did it go, Allan?  Is your talk out there on youtube or...?  The video link on the xx-sinfo.org site doesn't play for me.

Re: Allan's talk @ SINFO XX?

The videos aren't available yet I think.. what was on the page was a live stream. It was really nice to see Allan from the front row!

Tks for visiting Portugal!

I missed that. It might be worth a front-page announcement.

I swear I mean no offense (and I'm not being sarcastic), heh, but you know, I have always liked that troll-like smile in your picture, Allan XD

Anyway, I hope the video is ready soon!


"open source is about choice"
No.
Open source is about opening the source code complying with this conditions, period. The ability to choose among several packages is just a nice side effect.

Re: Allan's talk @ SINFO XX?

Pedro is slowly uploading the talks on the following youtube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/sinfoist

Allan's should be there sooner or later.

Re: Allan's talk @ SINFO XX?

I was on the last day, with a panel afterwards, so i guess it will be last to appear.

(Also, doubt I will watch it!)

Well, I just spent 1:06 of my life watching Allan's presentation.

Well done Allan, well done.

Re: Allan's talk @ SINFO XX?

I've just finished skimming through it. I thought it was overall quite good but a little slow. I cringed a few times while watching the Q&A and the end (misunderstandings, "Ark Linux", etc.) but I smiled when Powerpill got a mention. big_smile

@Allan
You started off by pointing out that it was midnight your time. Did you arrive the same day?

One of my students is down there at "The Clicker Expo" right now.  Not sure if that's cool or not though.

He looks a lot older than I imagined.


Arch Linux is suited to the competent user.
Which ranks me right up there at highly incompetent.

I just had to shake my head at the guy that said systemd was x86 only. I'm surprised that Allan didn't correct him on that, it's flat out untrue.
