Finally got my shit together and got a flight to Argentina for DebConf!
Perth -> Sydney -> Auckland -> Buenos Aires -> Mar del Plata.
That is quite a bit of flying and a long bus trip ending quite early on the 4th. It will definitely be worth it if DebConf7 was anything to go on.
Hopefully by DebConf I can get my hands on an OpenMoko FreeRunner to do some Debian porting work during DebCamp and possibly mapping out the streets of Mar del Plata for OpenStreetMap. Of course I need to work on completing analysis of the results of the Debian user and new contributor surveys and figure out what to say about synfig
if I get the chance to do a lightning talk about it.
/me now officially excited
