BeOS & Derivatives "FalterCon 2007 took place on August 11, and it went quite well (IMHO, of course). Here I would like to share my personal impressions of the event, as well as make a few (somewhat) related observations. When the news of the WalterCon cancellation broke out and I read about some people being left with non-refundable air tickets, my first reaction was 'OK, let's do something with these guys'. A few emails later with Mike Summers, Bryan Varner and Urias, we had decided on having a community gathering which, as many of you know, was to later be called FalterCon (yes, pun intended). In approximately two weeks, we found a venue (and a good one!), had this website running, prepared some nice promo material, and were able to gather nine people willing to attend. All in all, I think we did pretty well given the very little time we had."

I have no problem with the Linux people. They were nice, if eccentric and weird. I have no room to talk. Let's just say I wasn't the weirdest one in the room for once.

We were one of the centers of attention as Koki found us a spot near the power outlet. Starshine (Heather Stern) was cool, as was the lady in the red hat, which I captured on camera. Egrep made the comment about about blowing up Redmond.

I got to meet Bryan's wife Kylene, whose seemed really kind. I saw Andrew Bachmann and his wife and got to actually interact with them, but I'm not sure if Andrew had any fun. By the way, it seems porting Java makes you a babe magnet.

I had a really good time, even if I was stuck behind the camera.
