Guusjjrh The Realtime Lounge is shared with a number of projects - most if not all of them do work with XMPP.
GuusI don't know how it come to be, to be honest (although I don't dislike the concept either).
Guusralphm probably knows.
ralphmWe've been doing this for at least 5 years
ralphmAnd was a result of RealtimeConf by &yet.
GuusRestaurant confirmed! I explicitly asked for you Ralph - they're still serving the dame blanche 😉
Zashpraise the chocolatey gods
KevThe dame blanche and the steak at the dinner are the high points of the trip. Well two of them.
GuusI've just posted to the summit mailing list on the usage of language. Sadly, people told me after last years summit, that they couldn't follow some of the discussions, as the level of spoken English was to high for them.
GuusI wasn't aware of that at the time - but now that we are, lets try and avoid that.
KevI'm not sure that helps, unfortunately.
GuusAlso, if it affects you, please speak up - either in public (this is nothing to be ashamed of), or in private.
GuusWe can only try.
KevA concrete thing like "Kev, please try not to use more than 4 negations in a sentence" is workable, but "don't use complex language" isn't something I expect people to be able to filter on the fly.
Guus"Can you repeat that differently please? I don't understand."
KevI think all we can do is hope people ask other people to repeat themselves phrased differently if they didn't understand.
GuusI'm also thinking that being aware of this problem goes a long way to avoid it.
ZashSpend some time reading https://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page ;)
ralphmI'm worried about intosi than Kev, tbh. He has the best words. 😭
intosiI'll leave the best words home, and only take the gibberish.
GuusI think your best words deserve a special venue - like the ribs place. 😋
intosiDo we even need an incentive to go there?
Guusno, bu tmore incentives can't hurt.
intosiAny luck with the Thon, or should we pack sleeping bags? ;)
intosi(I realise they are slow to respond, as in previous years, and I fully appreciate the efforts so far!)
GuusThey accepted my signature on their contract, which I sent before their deadline, so I'm assuming we do have the rooms.
