dwdHow long do we have the devroom for this year? 1000-1900, or something, isn't it?
stpeteryes, something like that -- it's a long time :)
dwdWell, now we have four talks it'll fly by.
KevI'm trying to work out if I have anything interesting to say.
KevI don't think I do.
stpeterso say something uninteresting :)
dwdKev, I've, erm, booked you in for a talk.
KevWhat am I talking about?
dwdI figured you, Peter, and Remko can do a XMPP 101 tag-team talk.
dwdI managed to ask Peter, and now, you, before saving this into the nearly-finished Wiki page. :-)
ralphmdwd: I received some documentation on that. I'll forward it to the summit list, too.
KevI'm not opposed to this.
KevI'm pondering giving a talk about XMPP as a data store.
dwdXMPP as ACAP!
KevI think it's a little early to talk about its demise quite yet.
dwdstpeter, Also, "Network Information Sharing" - NIS? Back after all this time?
stpeterheh yeah, perhaps not the best acronym :P
ralphmKev: does it involve binary xml?
dwdstpeter, Presence Server Annotations is the best one, I'm sure you agree.
dwdOK. Written http://wiki.xmpp.org/web/FOSDEM_2012
dwdLargely a copy of FOSDEM_2011, of course.
ralphmdwd: there are 8 schedulable (?) hours in the devroom
KevSo that's a 6hour drum percussion ensemble, then two hours of talks?
KevShould ask Remko.
KevWe got any other drummers in the XSF?
KevYes, I know you.
KevThat's why I said *other* :)
KevNeed one more for a quartet.
dwdAnd a placeholder, at least, at http://wiki.xmpp.org/web/Summit_11
dwdMeanign I can finally post a blog post on this - anyone fancy reviewing it before I publish?
dwd(It's saved as a draft in Wordpress now, or I can post it here)
ralphmdwd: you put in 13:00
dwdralphm, I did? I thought I'd removed the times.
dwdralphm, I'll get it in a sec, anyway.
KevThat looks fine, publish away.
dwdAs you'll be aware if you've been following the XSF's mailing lists and chatrooms, FOSDEM 2012 is coming, and that means it's also time for the XMPP Summit 11.
A rough timetable is:
Friday 3rd February - XSF Interop Day (Hosted by Cisco in Diegem)
The testing to be done is being organized as I type on our mailing list at firstname.lastname@example.org
Saturday 4th February - XMPP Realtime Lounge at FOSDEM, XMPP Talks at FOSDEM
If you've some fun project to demo at our stand, the Realtime Lounge, or an exciting talk about XMPP and related topics, we still have speaking slots available - tell us your idea on the email@example.com mailing list. Talks start at 11:00, and run through to 19:00.
Sunday 5th February - XMPP Realtime Lounge at FOSDEM
More demos of unusual and inventive uses of XMPP throughout the day at the Realtime Lounge.
Monday 6th February - XMPP Summit 11 (Hosted by Cisco at Diegem)
Technical talks and discussion for the participants of the firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list.
All this, and evening entertainment too - on Friday, there's the FOSDEM Beer Event (Look for the XSF logo projected onto the ceiling to find us there!), and on Saturday, we'll have the XSF Dinner - free to XSF Members, and sponsors are always welcome - and very popular on the night!
If you're coming, join the email@example.com mailing list and make yourself known - we're busy organizing hotel deals, speakers, demos, and so on there, so you'll be able to get the best deals we can wangle and be ahead of the game.
See you all there!

dwdKev, Are you?
KevNot in any practical sense.
KevI have the editor open because I was reading it to ok it.
dwdOh, of course.
KevI now donot.
dwdRight, I'll publish this, unless anyone screams before I'l got myself a drink.
dwdWe have *8* hours of talks to fill.
dwdAnd we seem to have really low attendence this year, too.
KevApart from from Isode.
KevWho will outnumber all out attendees.
dwdMaybe I can spring a talk on Mili.
dwdRight, and a note sent to MSFT suggesting they come.
dwd(And pay for dinner)
KevPredominantly the second, right?
dwdI've downplayed the second in my note, having clearly stated it in the web stuffs.
dwdBut I figure they've got deeper pockets than most.
