  8. Dave Cridland

    Hard to keep up with this thread, now. :-)

  9. SM

    Oh, you should have seen my working group:)

  10. SM

    So if I read it correctly, Dave and Kevin flamed me?:)

  11. Dave Cridland

    Oh, I can flame better than that.

  12. SM

    Are you sure?:)

  13. Dave Cridland

    Well, nobody's contacted me off-list to calm down yet. :-)

  15. SM

    BTW, are there members from Asia?

  16. Dave Cridland

    I thought we had a couple. Primarily it's Europe and the US, though.

  17. SM

    Hmm, it helps to have some people from Japan

  18. Dave Cridland

    We have a very marked European slant, compared to most organizations. I often wonder if that's related to the (usually very successful) Summit we hold at FOSDEM.

  19. SM

    That was the odd thing, XSF is more European than the usual SDOs

  20. Zash

    There were some from Japan last year in Brussels right? Maybe there should be a summit in Asia too?

  21. Zash

    Doen't the IETF rotate their meetings between America, Europe and Asia?

  22. Dave Cridland

    Right, but FOSDEM is much much larger than RTC, and our engagement is better. We usually have a room (not this year, but this is the first for ages) and recently we've had a "Realtime Lounge" as well. I don't know that this is the cause for our European concentration, or if it's a product of it, but I can't think it hurts.

  23. Dave Cridland

    Zash, US mostly, with one a year in EU or Asia.

  24. Dave Cridland

    Zash, And we had Japanese presenters in 2012's Brussels Summit, didn't we?

  25. Zash

    Dave Cridland: I believe so.

  26. SM

    Zash, yes. But there is also the cost element.

  27. Dave Cridland

    SM, I think we have more funds per head than the IETF, though.

  28. SM

    Dave, did you hear about LINE?

  29. Dave Cridland

    I don't think so.

  30. SM

    They chose a proprietory protocol instead of XMPP.

  31. Zash


  32. SM

    They are said to have 100 million users.

    dave: I mostly have ideas how to make sure that the chrome team realizes how thin their sdp cover ontop of libjingle is ;-)

  36. Dave Cridland

    stpeter, Would you like someone else to volunteer finding a restaurant?

  37. Dave Cridland

    stpeter, After all, several of us will be in Portland fairly shortly, might be easier for us.

  38. stpeter

    yes, thanks, that's helpful, replied on list, bbiab....
