tomorrow (early) morning i start my journey to the 4th world forum on free knowledge. while there is a strong free software aspect to it, the event also covers legal and cultural issues related to freedom. i'm quite interested to see who all attends and what topics are covered. finding the cross-over points between the software world and other technical, art and governance fields is ever interesting.
i'll be keynoting on how open source software improves society and the holding a 4 hour hands-on introduction to developing applications with kde. the goal of the former is to bring to light the benefits of open source, as seen in kde and elsewhere, to society at large and the goal of the latter is to start new kde developers off on the right foot. by the end of the 4 hours they will have created their first simple gui app.
i'll be travelling for most of tomorrow, staying overnight in caracas before travelling on in the morning to maturin for the start of the conference. hopefully the travel is uneventful and i can get some work done on the way. that and watch the latest episode of battlestar galactica. =)
if they record the proceedings i'll be sure to post a link here. next post will be from .ve. hopefully, anyways. =)
