Richard, Oliver, and Colin at UDS Boston

Wel, here I am. Once again at the semi-annual Ubuntu Developers Summit. Of all the exotic locales I get to travel to? BOSTON! For many this is truly an awesome place to be, but for me…I only live 2.5 – 3.0 hours (driving) from here, thus I make it to Boston several times a year for business, pleasure, and above all…Red Sox games! I will say, however, that we in an awesome hotel that is cutting edge, a technological marvel, and wired to the hilt…the Hilton at MIT in Cambridge.

Above, is a picture from the “pre-summit”. Folks are arriving today from all over the world in preparation for the Ubuntu Developers Summit which begins in earnest tomorrow morning. That’s when the real work begins. Today it’s getting reacquainted…making plans…working on pet projects and catching up. In the image above you’ll see on the left (black shirt) Oliver Grawert from Germany (Education Technical Lead for Ubuntu), Richard Weideman from South Africa (middle…Education Program Manager for Canonical/Edubuntu), and Colin Watson from Cambridge, England (blue sweater…Ubuntu Platform Manager aka “big cheese of Ubuntu”). This is truly an open and international effort. Me? I’m holding the camera and I’m from Maine, USA. Stay tuned…lots more happening as the week gets started. (oh…and GO RED SOX!)
