Boston Gnome Summit 2007

Note: This is an old post in a blog with a lot of posts. The world has changed, technologies have changed, and I've changed. It's likely this is out of date and not representative. Let me know if you think this is something that needs updating.

The GNOME folks are meeting in Boston for the Boston GNOME Summit 2007. I met up with Asheesh (who turned out to be a PyBlosxom user I've known for a while) last night and talked with Stefan from Nokia about Miro, gstreamer, and the possibilities of porting Miro to the Nokia Internet tablets.

Tonight, Dean, Chris and I met up with Asheesh (Creative Commons) and SJ (OLPC) and talked about Miro in relation to Creative Commons and OLPC. After that, we headed over to Flat Top Johnny's and talked with more of the people who were here for the GNOME Summit.

Most of the people I talked to knew about Miro--that was neat. There's a lot of interest in Miro and its future directions. In many ways it's really exciting, but in some ways it's really daunting. How do you choose between the myriad of interesting future directions? We've got a limited number of people working on Miro, so we can't choose them all--at least, not for the next version after 1.0. It's a good spot to be in, but at the same time, a little depressing since it would be a lot of fun to do everything. :)
