FOSDEM 2006 photos

I just processed and uploaded a number of photos that I shot at FOSDEM. As an experiment I converted the photos to black and wite, and tried to give them a grainy look by adding some digital noise. Not sure I like it.

Northern Voice 2006 conference

Met a bunch of interesting (non-Drupal) people at the Northern Voice conference. Here is a selection of them:

Robert scoble
Robert Scoble, Microsoft employee, technical evangelist and blogger extraordinaire. We talked 'Drupal' with him which I'm sure he will be pitching to Bill Gates. ;-)
Tim bray
Tim Bray, Sun Microsystems employee, W3C member and co-inventor of XML. Tim made Sun Microsystems donate a Sun Fire V20z server to the Drupal project. I finally got to say "thank you" in person.
Matt mullenweg
Matt Mullenweg, lead developer of WordPress and co-founder of Automattic, the company behind and Akismet. We talked about web technologies and open source development on more than one occasion this week. Really nice guy to hang out with!
