T-DOSE 2007 is dead, long live T-DOSE 2008.

T-DOSE 2007 is over, and it was good. It could have been great if more people attended and I think the lesson for T-DOSE is that more advertising is needed. And maybe that will lead to more presentation tracks so that even more people are interested in coming.

But the organization was perfect, the location superb and the people the max. So next year you cannot miss out.

Thanks to everyone who made it happen.

How I became more "pure" with no effort

I am going to be very frank on my blog: I am a pine user. Yes, I admit it. In fact, I've never really lied about it, but I did obfuscate my email headers so people wouldn't harass me.

"So what ?" I hear you say. Well, for one it made me less pure. It was never free software and I was tainted... But I really did try to withdraw from using pine. In the last 13 years I had 3 attempts to move to mutt and even with the help of close friends, it was all in vain.

Promoting OSS: Social networks

A year ago as a CentOS team member I had taken the task upon myself to promote CentOS at events. Since LinuxWorld 2006 in London, we have organised presence at at least 8 different events, and we intend to do even better.

One of my personal favorites was FOSDEM 2007 which was the biggest gathering of CentOS volunteers to date. And I am positive that with everybody's help we can do even better the next edition.
