Last Friday (December 5, 2003), I joined the
Bluepoint Road Tour to talk about
Linux in the academe (SXI). I shared
my experiences with Linux as a student and as a teacher, and I also
showed how it makes sense from the administrator’s point of view. It
was tons of fun, particularly fielding questions during the open
Dominique went out of his way to escort me from
Ateneo to Lyceum – I’d literally have been lost without him. Karma++.
<grin> That made him a little late for his keynote speech
(whoops!), but Magie covered for him by extending
her talk for 15 minutes more. He talked about IBM and Linux.
I finally got to meet Eddie Salonga. I knew
him from BBSing, but hadn’t met him until then. His parents joined us
for dinner at Oody’s in Greenbelt; apparently, his dad is a senator.
(Nice guy; smiles a lot!)
