I may live to regret this but... If you have a legal/licensing issue with a FOSS project and need help, you can ask me nicely and I'll try to help. I am not a lawyer, nor am I pretending to be one, but I'm pretty good at providing clarity and getting things fixed.

The Air France flight attendant dumped a full cup of hot coffee over both my arms and my right leg. I am choosing not to interpret this as an omen.
On my first flight back to the US, but I have to go through... CDG

Good bye Valencia! You were lovely! I will miss your oranges and flowering plants! I will not miss your monkey pox.

Ok #KubeConEU friends. I have 25 of the secret swag dumpster fire challenge coins with me today. I have set up in a comfortable chair with power between the Canonical and Grafana booths. Today, I'm wearing a fashionable Loki Variant T-shirt.

Remember the deal: you need to trade me a story or a cool item. I'll probably float here until about 12:00.

Also, I hear @sonatype might have delicious fruit slushes... Will totally trade a coin if someone brings me one.

Love that good trouble. Proud to be part of @conservancy .
Missed this huge win for #OpenSourceSoftware and #copyleft in court by @conservancy: The GPL et al are contracts, and not just licenses. Pacta sunt servanda. zdnet.com/article/software-f鈥

I have to say, I really thought these challenge coins would be more popular.

Okay friends, I have setup camp on the #KubeCon showcase floor directly across from the AWS booth. If you want one of my Open Source Dumpster Fire secret swag challenge coins, you have to find me and either tell me an open source story or offer something cool in trade.
Mission accomplished!! Found @spotfoss and got my honorary open source dumpster fire coin. Join me alittle latter today for my talk on Cobra and the risks single maintainer dependencies pose to the entire software ecosystem 馃摚 #KubeCon

Are you a #KubeConEU early bird? Want to get your coin? I'm sitting in one of the open tables in the Main building hall. Find me and I will honor the contract.
Are you going to Kubecon Valencia? Do you want one of these limited edition open source dumpster fire challenge coins? Then read on!

Spain is lovely, but very very warm. I've been hiding under shade most of the day today.
