35C3: Day Two to Four

Show Sidebar

Sorry for the long delay since my article on the first day of 35C3.

The reason why I did not follow my pattern of blogging after each day of 35C3 was, that I got the dreaded "Conference Seuche" (plague) on the second day in the afternoon. Please do wash your hands often, when you are at a large conference like this.

Too bad, I stayed in bed for the most part of the third day. This put me on the edge. Not only because I missed things from the conference. On the evening of the third day, I held my talk about Org mode and how it can help people managing their (digital) life.

Fortunately, I recovered a bit so that I was able to do my talk.

General 35C3 Conclusions

The conference was really huge.

Since most talks were not part of the official program, I concentrated on visiting things that were not recorded. I tried to speak with people, see interesting stuff, visit talks and workshops of the Self-organized Sessions.

The people at the conference were awesome.

The organization is top, the Angels are doing excellent work.

The food of the food trucks was Okay, the Tschunk was great.

I have many videos to watch.

36C3

I don't know if I will be joining 36C3 yet.

However, when I do come to 36C3, I most probably will try to help with organizing a decent "Church of Emacs" assembly. I started an Etherpad for interested people for brainstorming ideas and managing some tasks. If you're interested, please do reach out to me so that you'll get the link.

There should be more people who are interested and who are convinced that they should get interested in Emacs. Much room for improvement here.

Maybe I manage to get a talk in the official program. So far, I only got rejects for the recent years. This time, I try to submit a talk with a higher level of vision in contrast to emphasize the tooling aspect.

Meanwhile, I have to come up with a cool topic for GLT19 ...
