No registration necessary. https://fosdem.org/2017/ An open tech conference on open tech. Can you imagine? And with years of momentum. This is where I was when the Nurtane story broke and I'm thankful for the perspective, except the immediate distraction means I wont be able to process my notes any time soon. Except just one for… Continue reading not a review of FOSDEM/Brussels 2017: An open tech conference on open tech
This post is late, I didn't document the jokes around Nicosia as they came up, none was perfect, and the two-time zones New Years Eve party in the Nicosia Green Line [Ledras] solidified them.
