The Manila Meeting
… is over. I watched it on the web from about 2 to 5:30 p.m., but at the same time, I tried to hear what was being said on the chat, and that was difficult! The chat application turned my keyboard into an American, but not quite – ä, ö, ü were still there – , so I didn’t find anything. After half an hour I discovered the ? by accident, but I couldn’t find :-) these at all…
Some people there thought I was from NetDyslexia, but I don’t know why. Duncan said it was probably because we Germans all sound alike… Oh well.
Poor Duncan’s computer crashed several times, but he kept coming back!
Update: Seems like the guys from NetDyslexia noticed the above. They say:
hey andrea, congratulations! what a compliment to you
If nothing else, it made Starhacker2000 look at my site.
For some pictures of the meeting, go visit 2020 Hindsight. Susan has great pictures, as always! And I guess there are more to come… yup, they are right there on Manilapalooza!
Susan even has a pic of the well-dressed European geek with the funny accent! :-P
Kate mentioned only six of the 75 or so participants were women. I wonder why! What a pity I wasn’t able to come…
Okay, when the meeting ended at 5.30 p.m., it was 3.30 a.m in Germany because we switched to daylight savings time last night. I was sooo tired! That means I slept (too) long today and now I have to catch up with my work.
Bye for now!
When I read YamÂ´s short notice on you and the manila meeting at NetDyslexia I really got curious. A bit later I’m kind of disapointed, a meeting on the net, hmm. Anyway, to pick up YamÂ´s opinion: Take it as a compliment when somebody believes you to have a NetDyslexia background.
Hi Starhacker2000, whatever your real name may be!
Take it as a compliment when somebody believes you to have a NetDyslexia background.
Why am I thinking this implies it could be otherwise?
P.S.: I guess I want a Manila Meeting in Europe, so I can meet the NetDyslexians (and others) face-to-face!
