CeBIT was (probably still is) the world’s largest IT tradeshow. It is spread across roughly 12 halls and it will take you about 30 mins to walk from one end to the other outside. So big.

In fact, I can think of [...]
The people of Free Software are cool. They’re definitely my type of people. Now, I freely admit, I have not met everyone in the Free Software ecosystem. Heck, I don’t even know as many KDE people as I should. But, of those that I have met, the people who care enough to become actively [...]
