Nick of London

Written By: Gary on August 3, 2004 One Comment

So while I was in London I had a chance to have lunch with Nick of ‘only so much writing in the air’. He had lots of insight on London/American differences which I always find interesting. It was great to chat with someone who worked in the area and in similar IT areas. He’s a very ‘open source’ person and we chatted about that that a bit and one thing that sticks (and while it may be more obvious there than here) is ‘it’s easy to use open-source software when the industry standard doesn’t support languages you need’ (such as Welsh). I suppose I wouldn’t have a hard time convincing my school district to switch to open source if MS didn’t let us type in the language we needed. It was a lot more interesting lunch than I make it out to be here but it’s not like I took notes or anything. :)

    The significant other and I are planning a trip to England next Christmas….of course for me it’ll be my first time out of America, and for him it’ll just be a trip home to visit the family….but hey I have my very own tour guide!
