i'm in maturin, venezuella now. beautiful countryside. catching up with my email, 500+ since i last checked (yesterday morning). the people are great and the organization of the event seems pretty flawless to this point.
i'm opening the event tomorrow morning with my philosophical jaunt into the societal benefits of open source. right now i'm just slowly perspiring in the heat as 11 of us sit around tables on the covered deck in the hotel catching up with the rest of the world thanks to wifi.
