What a conference it was. Like last year, I volunteered (well actually, this time I voluntarily volunteered, unlike last time when hesa volunteered me ) which resulted in me not seeing much of the talks, but we managed to tape most of them, and those videos will become available through, I guess youtube, as well as our website as soon as they have been transferred and recoded (and licenses have been thoroughly discussed with the speakers).
Just like last year, I walked away from the conference bruised, a bit battered, VERY tired, and extremely happy. I finally got to meet some people I’ve talked to or only heard about online and made some new friends on site as well. It was all just great.
I’m not going to lie, there where some hiccups, not everything went smooth, BUT, and it is an important but, there is no doubt whatsoever that we are learning, improving, with every year.
The social event during Saturday evening, where buses relocated everyone to Berg 211, and Berg 211 in itself, and the atmosphere and … yeah, everything this year was really better.
I can hardly wait for FSCONS 2010. It will be fantastic!
In closing: A great big THANK YOU to all the organizers, all the volunteers, all the speakers, and all the visitors, who together made this such a wonderful experience that I am proud of having gotten the chance to be a part of.
See you again next year
