UbuCon 2007 on Friday

On Friday I attended UbuCon 2007, an “unconference” held at Google’s offices in Manhattan.

Joey Stanford posted some pictures and his summary on his blog. (I took no photos; it’s not permitted anywhere in Google’s office except the lobby.)

Besides learning more about my favorite Linux distro, I also saw a number of attendees carrying Nokia N800s (there were three in the morning, and then someone returned from lunch with a freshly-purchased one in a box that he opened), Mako Hill brought a prototype of the OLPC project’s XO computer, and we had a quick tutorial on using GIMP, Inkscape and Blender.

A fun and informative conference, and my first visit to the inside of a Google office complex.
