    How long do we have the devroom for this year? 1000-1900, or something, isn't it?

  3. stpeter

    yes, something like that -- it's a long time :)

  4. dwd

    Well, now we have four talks it'll fly by.

  5. Kev

    I'm trying to work out if I have anything interesting to say.

  6. Kev

    I don't think I do.

  7. stpeter

    so say something uninteresting :)

  8. dwd

    Kev, I've, erm, booked you in for a talk.

  9. Kev

    What am I talking about?

  10. dwd

    I figured you, Peter, and Remko can do a XMPP 101 tag-team talk.

  11. dwd

    I managed to ask Peter, and now, you, before saving this into the nearly-finished Wiki page. :-)

  12. ralphm

    dwd: I received some documentation on that. I'll forward it to the summit list, too.

  13. Kev

    I'm not opposed to this.

  14. dwd

    ralphm, Thanks.

  15. Kev

    I'm pondering giving a talk about XMPP as a data store.

  16. dwd

    XMPP as ACAP!

  17. Kev

    I think it's a little early to talk about its demise quite yet.

  18. dwd

    stpeter, Also, "Network Information Sharing" - NIS? Back after all this time?

  19. stpeter

    heh yeah, perhaps not the best acronym :P

  20. ralphm

    Kev: does it involve binary xml?

  21. Kev


  22. ralphm


  23. dwd

    stpeter, Presence Server Annotations is the best one, I'm sure you agree.

  24. stpeter


  25. dwd

    OK. Written http://wiki.xmpp.org/web/FOSDEM_2012

  26. dwd

    Largely a copy of FOSDEM_2011, of course.

  27. ralphm

    dwd: there are 8 schedulable (?) hours in the devroom

  28. ralphm


  29. Kev

    So that's a 6hour drum percussion ensemble, then two hours of talks?

  30. Kev


  31. ralphm


  32. Kev

    Should ask Remko.

  33. Kev

    We got any other drummers in the XSF?

  34. ralphm !

  35. Kev

    Yes, I know you.

  36. Kev

    That's why I said *other* :)

  37. Kev

    Need one more for a quartet.

  38. ralphm


  39. dwd

    And a placeholder, at least, at http://wiki.xmpp.org/web/Summit_11

  40. dwd

    Meanign I can finally post a blog post on this - anyone fancy reviewing it before I publish?

  41. Kev


  42. ralphm

    dwd: ^

  43. dwd

    (It's saved as a draft in Wordpress now, or I can post it here)

  44. ralphm

    dwd: you put in 13:00

  45. dwd

    ralphm, I did? I thought I'd removed the times.

  46. dwd

    ralphm, I'll get it in a sec, anyway.

  47. Kev

    That looks fine, publish away.

  48. dwd

    As 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 interop@xmpp.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 summit@xmpp.org 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 standards@xmpp.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 summit@xmpp.org 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!

  50. dwd

    Kev, Are you?

  51. Kev

    Not in any practical sense.

  52. Kev

    I have the editor open because I was reading it to ok it.

  53. dwd

    Oh, of course.

  54. Kev

    I now donot.

  55. Kev


  56. dwd

    Right, I'll publish this, unless anyone screams before I'l got myself a drink.

  57. ralphm


  58. dwd

    We have *8* hours of talks to fill.

  59. dwd

    And we seem to have really low attendence this year, too.

  60. Kev

    Apart from from Isode.

  61. dwd

    Yeah, true.

  62. Kev

    Who will outnumber all out attendees.

  63. dwd

    Maybe I can spring a talk on Mili.

  64. Kev


  65. dwd

    Right, and a note sent to MSFT suggesting they come.

  66. dwd

    (And pay for dinner)

  67. Kev

    Predominantly the second, right?

  68. dwd

    I've downplayed the second in my note, having clearly stated it in the web stuffs.

  69. dwd

    But I figure they've got deeper pockets than most.
