Greetings from Brussels!

I'm in Brussels, arrived yesterday for FOSDEM this weekend. Actually, FOSDEM semi-officially begins this evening, with the traditional "beer event", being held this year at the Café Délirium, near the Grand' Place. (Tomorrow night's the GNOME Beer Event, at La Porte Noire...)

I got here around 9 in the morning yesterday, was lucky enough to be able to snag a room at the hotel that early, and crashed out for several hours. I met up with my pal Carlos, who happened to be in town, but not for FOSDEM, yesterday evening and we wandered out to get mussels and beer on Boulevard Anspach, an excellent dinner.

I expect to be meeting up with a couple of other friends Monday before I fly back to the States on Tuesday. I should be getting a bunch of pictures from FOSDEM, I'll try to post the best of them here... I'm also going to be doing a little Mobile World Congress blogging on behalf of the LiMo Foundation week after next...

Who else is going to be at FOSDEM this year?

If you have a chance, stop by the Haiku booth if you can; Haiku dev Francois Revol will be there. Tell him that I sent you. :)

Have fun!

Hi, Koki! I'll definitely stop by the booth and say hello to François!

I'll be manning the Gnome booth, surely I will meet you there!
