Sonja Krause-Harder, a developer evangelist for openSUSE, did a spectacular job coordinating a huge number of interviews for Novell Open Audio. Erin and I have been talking pretty much non-stop since noon yesterday, and we don’t finish until noon tomorrow.
So far we have the following subjects and people recorded and ready for editing:
- Multiplehardware platforms and SUSE Linux with Bodo Bauer and Ihno Krumreich
- An AutoBuild overview with Rudi Oertel and Michael Schroeder
- Quality Assurance testing details with Oliver Ries and Christian Hueller
- Integrating SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop with Active Directory, as told to us by Lars Mueller
- KDE development at SUSE with Stephan Kulow and Adrian Schroeter
- The SWAMP project (Workflow Administration and Management Platform) with Thomas Schmidt
We still have three more interviews lined up today, and two more tomorrow morning.
Today, while having a quick meal with our friend Roman Drachtmueller (SUSE security architect), Erin briefly complained about his brain being full. We though he was just joking and had a brief laugh. But when his head suddenly exploded, pieces scattering all over the little Turkish lunchroom in which we were sitting, we realized how serious he actually was. After collecting the largest pieces in a box and profusely apologizing to the establishment’s owners, we quickly shuffled back to the office. Roman seemed uncertain of me as he explained that although most Germans speak English relatively well, they do not, in fact, have a king, which is why they all look at me so strangely every time I request someone where I might find all the king’s horses and all the king’s men.
Okay, maybe that last bit was just to see who is paying attention.
