May 172005

It has been nearly three months since my last post. Let me change that now.

BSDCan 2005 was a roaring success. We had 197 people, up from 175 last year. We had lots of compliments, and hints of corporate sponsorship. People came from 15 different countries including 26 from outside North America. That’s pretty impressive.

The Hyper-Threading Vulnerability talk was a great bonus. The story has been mentioned on many websites already.

Planning for BSDCan 2006 will start in a few weeks time. I’ll just take a short time to recover….
