Lock up your booze and your network cards (in that order), I’m hitting up Berlin for Desktop Summit. I’ll be talking about network and location awareness in your application on Sunday, which is thinly veiled code for how to make NetworkManager and ModemManager tell you where you are and how to get where you want to go. I’ll also be hosting a BOF (with Will Stephenson, hopefully) on Wednesday afternoon in which you can alternatively deride and praise networking on Linux. If you don’t attend, I will be supremely disappointed and you can be assured WiFi access points will shun your feeble attempts at association. Otherwise let the summitting begin.
