I wanted to attend to Load Balancing Using Free Software, by Mathieu Trudel, a special, last-minute added talk, but I couldn’t. Unfortunately his paper did not make it into the proceedings, so I’ll have to ask him if he got one or not.
I also got the proceedings and I must say that I am generally pleased with the breadth of subjects as well as the quality of the papers. Makes for good reading. It took me about an hour to read the abstracts and skim over to decide which I will be reading in depth.
While we were discussing the symposium over coffee this morning, my friend Christopher ended up calling it the Linux synopsium for some reason known only to himself.
