Chris here reporting from GZ06.
Amazing talks so far. Only trouble is on the way down from hamilton today my jasjar went a bit flat:Luckily Mauricio came up with an easy soln-he had a battery that could charge it up-about the size of a cigarette box.-charging as we speak.
Saves me going back up to the hotel to get charger-then i would be limited as to where i sit in the rm.
Good socialisation occuring during the breaks courtesy of the sponsors-tweezers. Looking forward to our dinner later and more talking.
Listening to Jethro Carr about Open Sourse Software at momement.
An excellent experience so far.
Thanks for the organisers for the planning
