Toronto, London, Limerick

Posted on February 4, 2007, under general, Joost, TheVeniceProject.

So, I’m in Toronto right now, for NANOG39 where I’ll be talking to people about Joost (nee: The Venice Project), learning as much as I can, talking to some of our prospective Transit providers and maybe even taking part in some of the IPv6 stuff that’s going on here. If you’re in Toronto, say hi!

The View from my Hotel Window

Right now it’s -23°C outside, with a windchill that puts us somewhere down at -30°C, but it’s still surprisingly comfortable to walk around in with many layers and good gloves.

On Tuesday I fly out to go to London, where I’ll be spending a few days in the Joost London office, but am mainly in town to talk about E-voting for the Open Rights Group. The events look like they’ll be great fun and I’m especially looking forward to finally meeting Dr. Rebecca Mercuri. While I’m in town, I also hope to take a trip out to Bletchley park. In all my visits to the UK, I’ve still never managed to make it out there.

And finally, next week I’ll be in Limerick to talk at skycon on the same subject, but with more of an open-source slant. I’m going to try and cover how Open Source and E-voting can interact, is open source e-voting software really useful? But also, how ICTE used open-source principles very successfully when we were organising our lobbying efforts. Should be fun! Now I just have to write the presentation!
