Last week I was in Germany, in Weimar and Berlin, specifically, and on Sunday I got to do something that I’ve only done in one other city: To spend a day walking around and looking for the best of its most typical street food. Berlin’s most typical street food – aside from its ubiquitous donerContinue reading “The Great Berlin Curry Wurst Expedition”
I’m late in getting this up because I’ve been busy being a host to the participants of the recently-ended SummerCAMP 2007 developers’ and users’ conference. It was a lot of fun, and I think we got quite a bit of work done too. Saturday’s Radio 1 show was cool. I had the honor of invitingContinue reading “Setlist, 4 August 2007”
I’m finally going to be back on the air tomorrow on Prague’s Radio 1 (91.9 FM in case you didn’t know). I’ll be playing my typical mix of laid-back downtempo tunes, with quite a few new albums, including the new one from Bebel Gilberto, Momento.
I’m in Accra, Ghana, blogging from the Kofi Annan Centre of Excellence in ICT, which truly is world-class. I’ve been a guest facilitator at an event called MediaFOSS, which has been put together by the Free Software and Open Source Foundation for Africa (FOSSFA), and have been presenting trainings on Campsite and Campcaster (and showingContinue reading “Fufu and FOSSFA”
I won’t be doing my Radio 1 show this Saturday because for the next week and a half I’ll be in West Africa, in Dakar, Senegal (one of my favorite places on the planet) and Accra, Ghana (a place I’ve heard only great things about). The reason I’m heading to Accra is that I’ll beContinue reading “Heading to West Africa”
I’ve finally gotten a bit of connectivity and spare time in the middle of our training on Campcaster here in Jakarta, Indonesia, so I’m happy to finally be posting. The morning part of today’s session featured a remarkable presentation by Deddy Hendrian, the leader of Pinux, a Linux distribution made for Indonesian conditions. Before DeddyContinue reading “Pinux – P for vendetta”
I’m in Brussels now, and for the past couple of days I’ve been attending the Euro Foo Camp, an invitation-only event put together by O’Reilly Publishing. It’s been a lot of fun, mind-expanding and thought-provoking, and I’ve definitely been thrilled to be in some pretty rarefied company. I’ve had the chance to talk about whatContinue reading “At Euro Foo Camp/EuroOSCON”
Today was a clear day, not a single solitary cloud in the sky. Just like five years ago.
OK, so the generator’s just run out of power here at the e-Riders’ office, so I think I’m all done here in Freetown for this visit. I’ll try to write a longer post when I’m offline, and will post again from Dakar, probably sometime tomorrow.
I’m happy to report success on a number of fronts today. My colleagues, the Sierra e-Riders, have successfully installed Ubuntu on a number of different machines, and they’re now moving around the command line pretty well. But the big news for me is this: As of 6 pm today, we have successfully completed builds ofContinue reading “Success!”
