It was nice to autograph t-shirts, a wonderful Brasilian tradition, and with
so many female attendees seeking autographcs at last year's Software Livre, I
think I am spoiled for life for any other free software event...
Actually, the other things they did were also very nice. One key thing to
note from last year's software livre is that it was attended by the governer
of the State of Rio Grand Du Sul. This was important because that governer
and the party he represented had put together a unique combination of
industry, universities, and state govt resources, all for the specific
purpose of establishing and promoting a free software industry. With their
recent national elections, that same party now happens to be the ruling party
of the entire Brasilian nation. Naturally, our ambassador to their nation
has expressed his extreme displeasure over this turn of events...
