OSCON: Wednesday Morning Keynote

My jet lag caught up with me last night and I ended not making it to the Tuesday Night Extravaganza, although other people did and cruelly didn't blog Damian's talk for the rest of us that didn't. So I don't get to find anything more about "Temporally Quaquaversal Virtual Nanomachine Programming In Multiple Topologically Connected Quantum-Relativistic Parallel Timespaces", which is a pity...


The keynote kicked off with Allison Randall and Edd Dumbill, talking about the history of Open Source and OSCON. This is the first OSCON without Nat at the helm, and while I've seen him around, it's pretty weird not to have the keynote kick off with "...and here's your conference chair, Nat Torkington".

Update: Looks like I'll see you all next year. While I was in the keynote I got a phone call and I'm now heading back into the UK somewhat earlier than planned.

Update: More than one interrupted journey...
