MarkDudeDude, OSCON is good for talking to people in hallways02:03

* MarkDude has his pair of gloves02:11
MarkDudewore them in Virginia02:11
akkBetter hurry -- stores will be stopping selling gloves soon, if they haven't already.02:11
MarkDudeand not since ;P02:11
bkerensaMarkDude: Yes CLS.... I'm going to hold a session on Kickstarting Local Engagement in FOSS02:11
akkThey're probably starting to stock up on swimsuits by now.02:12
MarkDudelol akk02:12
bkerensaakk: Well I dont know where to start... I went to Fred Meyer and they didnt have any except those cheap kind the knit ones which seem to thick and hard to grab and do stuff with02:12
bkerensaMaybe swing out to Walmart this weekend02:12
* MarkDude palns on picking some controversial topic, and see how many show up for the trainwreeck02:12
bkerensaMarkDude: Ugh who was that OpenOffice guy? I swear he was going to start a riot in his session02:13
bkerensahe kept snapping at everyone02:13
akkbkerensa: Department stores sell isotoner and similar sorts of gloves -- that's what I use for things like driving or cold weather biking.02:13
MarkDudeHe who must not be named02:13
MarkDudeI talked with someone else in that session02:14
MarkDudeShe almsot kiled him02:14
bkerensaI walked out02:14
bkerensaand everyone was like giving eachother this look of.... Is this guy serious?02:14
MarkDudeIt was like- um,  dude, people are followijng the rules dont freak out02:14
MarkDudeHe is really smart guy02:14
bkerensaPeople would ask something or say something and he would be like... NO02:14
akkYou realize that anyone here who wasn't at that session is completely confused, reading this.02:14
bkerensayeah no doubt but he seemed very rough02:15
MarkDudeJust a bit towards aspbergers (sp?)02:15
bkerensaMarkDude: Louis Suarez-Potts02:15
MarkDudeakk well once it started with this dude was a d bag...02:15
bkerensaThats him ^02:15
MarkDudenaming names would be02:15
* MarkDude knows 02:15
akkMostly curious about what he did.02:16
MarkDudeSo he kept telling folks to calm down02:16
bkerensaI'm not saying anything that was not said in front of him... He is not a bad person he was just being rough02:16
MarkDudeand they were not waiting to talk02:16
MarkDudeand they were following rules02:16
bkerensaYeah people would talk or share an opinion and he would just abruptly cut them off or tell them NO or your wrong etc02:16
bkerensaat the end people started walking out on him and one lady called him out02:17
* MarkDude had Oracle and MS and all sorts of evil compinies in his session02:17
bkerensaI walked out02:17
MarkDudebut made sure no one was bashing02:17
MarkDudeor jumping02:17
MarkDudeHe is a great writer02:17
MarkDudeHe sorta acts like Prof02:18
bkerensaakk: He was holding a session on forking... and since he is with OpenOffice I guess perhaps he was disappointed about people forking projects hence LibreOffice02:18
akkDoes openoffice still exist? I thought the project basically changed into libreoffice.02:18
pleia2yeah, apache adopted it02:18
akkSo there are both now?02:18
pleia2yeah, it's very odd02:18
MarkDudeyay for forking02:19
MarkDudeand wasting time02:19
pleia2it wasn't a waste of time, oracle was being truly awful02:19
akkHmm, I should try openoffice, then. I'm mega-annoyed at libreoffice for taking away the ability to bind Delete to a key.02:19
bkerensapleia2: I wish they didnt have mysql02:20
pleia2bkerensa: yeah, but mysql has always been an odd duck02:20
bkerensabut at least MySQL's Community Manager is a really amazing guy who can joke about how evil his employer is02:20
pleia2I can't imagine he'd be able to tolerate his job if he couldn't be open about it, his employer /is/ evil ;)02:21
pleia2I don't tend to hate companies or corporations (I work for one), but oracle is meaniehead02:21
bkerensaCorporations can be good.... Some can be bad02:22
akkStrangely, they actually had some good linux work going on a while back (5+ years ago).02:22
pleia2yeah, and they were one of the earlier big names to get their flagship product running on approved linux systems02:22
akkAll the major companies seem to do this oscillation thing with open source, though, where they pledge undying love for linux then 2 months later, act like they've never heard of it.02:22
akk(Sun, HP, Dell, AMD ... IBM and Intel less so)02:23
akkI had a boyfriend like that once. Don't recommend it. :)02:23
bkerensaGoogle has been very supportive of the Linux Community IMHO02:23
akkYeah, Google is a lot more consistent. Though not entirely good (like withholding Android source).02:24
akkBut a lot less flaky than the others.02:24
bkerensaCompanies like PuppetLabs for instance will bend over backwards for FOSS...02:24
bkerensaThey have sponsored almost every event we have had and had their employees work on weekends to accommodate us02:24
MarkDudeWell - some companies would be tooooo stresful to work for02:25
bkerensaNo doubt02:25
MarkDudeI mean MS is evil- I have heard its pretty decent in some sections02:25
MarkDudeOracle - not so much02:26
MarkDudei heard the bosses have tasers and whips02:26
akkplus you have to take turns cleaning the deck of Larry's boat with a toothbrush.02:26
bkerensaI heard that Larry asked the City of San Francisco to tear down the docks by Fishermans Wharf for his boat racing thing02:27
bkerensais that true?02:27
akkI think that might be an exaggeration, but I think they are doing some remodeling for America's Cup spectators.02:28
bkerensawell I gotta run literally to make it02:30
MarkDudeyes bkerensa02:31
MarkDudeHe asked for all sorts of extra things02:31
MarkDudeAnd got them02:31
MarkDudeAt Oakland A's game- at Coliseum- nright next to Oracle arena02:32
MarkDudeBiggest cheer I have seen in a hile- was people liking Oracle boat over turning in race02:33
MarkDudeSlow motion on big screen02:33
