DebConf talks start
I haven’t been blogging as much the past few days, suggesting I’ve been busy. It certainly feels that way. DebCamp finished on Friday – the place has been noticably busier these past few days.
For Debian Day (Saturday), I sat on the front desk for twelve hours or so – it’s a cunning way to meet people, and I earned a free volunteer’s T-shirt for it all. The free T-shirt count is up to three, now – sponsor-tastic.

Sunday was the first day of DebConf proper – I went to a few of the talks. Mark Shuttleworth showed up – I’ve got photos of him talking to Sam Hocevar, but haven’t thought of a caption. (Aside: SELinux looks interesting.) In the evening, it was misty:
