1999 speak

Ok so I had to blog about this: right now I'm in a lecture at my university and the lecture is in dutch. So the guy keeps on throwing in words (in english) like 'corporate data model', 'context sensitive' and of course everyone's favorite 'return on investment'. So first up why do people insist on using these words as if it still is 1999. Second why do people use a language other than their own? Especially in lectures throwing in these words is meaningless. This could all be frustration on my part, sure hope it isn't a trend coming to hunt us from the past.

We have a venue!

We have a venue for Barcamp Amsterdam! Thanks to Willem Velthoven the head honcho at Mediamatic we can use their workshop space and kitchen! We only have room for about 40-50 people so sign up! Pictures of the place can be found here. Thanks again to Willem Velthoven and the Mediamatic crew for providing us with the space to hold Barcamp Amsterdam. Chris from Flock has written about it here. So remember the event is October 20th-21st in Amsterdam.

In October OSCON the Open Source Conference will be in Amsterdam. There are no free exhibit hall passes or non profit projects. So from the guys who brought you Bar Camp there is now Bar Camp Amsterdam. Location to be determined
Living in Amsterdam attendance is a no-brainer for me ;-) For impressions of the previous Bar Camp check out these flickr pages.
