Volcanoes And Penguins

Next week is linux.conf.au in Wellington. I'm going to be there from Wednesday to Friday, and I'll be giving a talk about why open video is important for free software. Actually I think I'll make it more interesting by broadening it with some discussion of the relationship between Web standards and free software in general.

On the way down to Wellington, a group of Mozilla-related people are going to be stopping at National Park Sunday night and Monday night so we can attempt the Mt Ruapehu summit walk. Should be fun, if the weather cooperates.

Anyway, this means I'll be completely offline Monday/Tuesday and mostly offline Wednesday to Friday next week.
