<civodul>hey comrades!
<civodul>anyone planning to participate in ?
<rekado_>not me.
<rekado_>I once presented Guix at an RSE conference in Manchester
<rekado_>it was a bit awkward.
<civodul>oh right, i remember you mentioning this
<civodul>i felt good vibes from this one, but i dunno
***rekado_ is now known as rekado
<rekado>the awkwardness may have been entirely due to whatever went on in my head
<rekado>the conference was a bit heavy on ads, which I found really jarring
<rekado>i.e. sponsored talks which included a video presentation of … well, just a microsoft ad.
<rekado>I found that rather disrespectful to make people watch an ad.
<rekado>but I guess conferences do need money and hashing out a sponsorship agreement is difficult
<civodul>heh, it does sound odd though
