E is for Europe

This is why it’s clear to me that the E in GUADEC still stands for Europe:

While some folks are trying to widen the scope by appealing to the faux fairness of sharing, I think the evidence pins true fairness smack bang in the middle of Europe!

You can trust me on this, because I’m totally unbiased about it: I’m one of the dots on the east coast of Australia, and have to fly at least 8 hours to get anywhere interesting. Notice how that so neatly rules out Perth and New Zealand. ;-)

That’s why I kickstarted GNOME.conf.au in 2004, and encourage communities around the world to create their own GNOME events for users and contributors. Aside from being a heck of a lot of fun, it’s a very important way to grow GNOME.

Which is precisely why we invest so much time and money into our face to face meetings, right?
