I just received word that the FrOSCon call for papers is due in one week, and since I did not even know there was a FrOSCon CfP out yet, here's hoping more people read this blog that did not know about it :-) Thanks to ScottyTM for the heads up.
After the presentation last year about using the Nintendo Wii remote for giving presentations we are this year taking it to second base !
For all speakers we will provide wiimotes and bluetooth dongles in all conference rooms. We also created a CentOS-based LiveCD with various presentation software and WiiPresent. With a single click you can connect your wiimote to your system to start applications and control your mouse.
The past week was a very busy one. While the Olympic games were held in Bejing I was breaking my personal records for number of presentations at a conference in one day (3), number of presentations in a week (5) and number of conferences in a week (3).
Because JRSL in Buenos Aires was just before FrOSCon, and there was also a Debian Days in Buenos Aires. I flew to Buenos Aires on Friday afternoon, arrived on Saturday morning, I went to DebianDays on Monday, JRSL on Wednesday where I gave 3 talks (CentOS, RPM packaging and Dstat), flew back on Thursday morning to arrive on Friday at noon in Zaventem to be in Bonn on Friday evening to present a duo-presentation about Proxytunnel (Punching holes in the corporate firewall) on Saturday and a duo-presentation about giving presentation with the wiimote on Sunday.
And on Monday back to work in Antwerp...
I am a bit disappointed that I did not have access to it before doing the same presentation at 3 different other venues, as I could have learned much from it. It shows that I had not slept that night because of the stress and sleepless nights turn me hyperactive :-)
