Feels a bit weird not going to GUADEC this year... I blame that guy that we're sending from New Zealand for blowing the travel budget for the rest of us :) Luckily Stuttgart is the first GUADEC host city that I've visited before anyway, so I don't feel like I'm missing out too much on that side of things... and hopefully I'll be able to watch many of the talks via the live video feeds that were so successful last year.
In case any GNOME folks are worried that our low attendance this year are a sign that Sun aren't interested in supporting GNOME any more, though, nothing could be further from the truth... we have as many GNOME/JDS projects on the go at the moment as we've ever had, and with OpenSolaris just around the corner I expect we'll be ramping up even more. So actually it's probably just as well we're not sending so many engineers to GUADEC this year-- we're too darn busy :)
