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."

Well, I donīt know you but when I see something like this - http://www.jonnypage.ca/?p=245 - I start laughing out loud like crazy even if the joke is on me! But one can always look to those funny Novell TV commercials if he/she prefers a more "optimistic" view on these things. ;)

Now getting back to the topic: I am glad to see that some of the Haiku enthusiasts around here managed to work around that sad problem with WalterCon being canceled and all and had the chance to meet each other in person, having a heck of a good time while they were at it.
