I had a great weekend at LRL2006 (some photos here) and met some cool people (and a nutcase who thinks the Sony Playstation 3 is going to become self-aware and destory all humans) (seriously). It was fun to meet some of the people who work on the software I use, such as Matthew Garrett and Bastien Nocera. Everyone was everyone else’s fanboy. As Louisa said, it was like an open source bukkake party.
Big thanks to Gareth Bowker and Shane Coughlan of FSF Europe for helping out with our T-shirts.
UPDATE: The new “Knuth is my homeboy” shirts and the extra ELER sizes have arrived! Be the envy of the tiny minority of your friends who know who Donald Knuth is: T-shirts at the ELER Shop.
