I was ready on time to travel to Dublin… but not my plane. Departure got delayed around 40 minutes. Not a nice way to start the day. I was supposed to meet Volker Krause on arrival, and luckily he was kind enough to wait for me. In the airport we met a few other KDE hackers: Antonio, Inge and Lubos.

Reaching the hostel from the airport was really easy, we were just a bus and 5 minutes walk away. We had to wait a bit to be able to reach our rooms so we used this opportunity to have lunch together with John Tapsell and his wife.

Went to the PC huts to finish polishing the talk we have with Matthias. I’m looking forward to giving this presentation with him.

In the evening I met Cormac Lawler of WikiMedia fame and his girlfriend. We chatted in the Kennedy’s Bar for almost three hours! He’s really a great guy and it was a real pleasure to meet him in person. We discussed some interesting collaborations and I truely hope we’ll see the discussion we had opening to a broader audience and give birth to nice cross-projects.

That’s all for this friday, I’m finishing typing this as I’m attending Aaron’s keynote.

See you later!
