Back from first Taipei visit
Much like the first week, the 2nd week in Taipei really rushed by and I’m finding myself being back in Frankfurt for until the 15th of July, when I’m leaving to Birmingham to attend GUADEC. I will have a talk about OpenMoko there and I’m looking forward to meet a lot of GNOME guys and gals.
My last day in Taipei was spiced by a whole day meeting with Carsten ‘The Rasterman’ Haitzler, whom we invited to visit us — talking about graphics for next-generation user interfaces, the Enlightenment Foundation Libraries, and more. Raster is a really nice and competent guy and I enjoyed that meeting a lot — thanks for your patience with all my questions
Unfortunately, I also have some bad news. While I was in Taipei, Frankfurt struggled under massive amounts of rain and water poured into my new office room in our apartment Fortunately, nothing important has been damaged, however the whole carpet is drenched and there is now a (really loud) dryer operating in the room for a couple of weeks. *sigh*
