So while we were at CeBIT, I suddenly had this man appear in front of me with a microphone and a recorder asking if I’d do a podcast. I didn’t actually have a chance to ask who was the audience or anything because he switched on the iRiver and started recording. So I gave it my best shot. The gentleman had some great questions and turned out to be Bob Hughes who did a great podcast coverage of CeBIT. I was relieved to listen to it and find that my answers were kind of interesting (albeit fast) but really pleased when I heard the intro and summary he added to my talk. He talked about Open Source being important for people, and about us being socially aware and not like just another salesperson. It was fun Thanks Bob for thinking of us to cover in your CeBIT podcast

Welcome to my blog. It goes back a while and has my thoughts on all things technology, open government, FOSS and freedom. May contain traces of silliness and martial arts.
Check out my Gov 2.0 (open government) posts. They represent the bulk of my thinking and work at the moment.
These thoughts are my own.
