The morning started great:
After another morning of interesting sessions and brain storming, we received a brown bag lunch:
The idea for the afternoon was that some people could go out for some winetasting, while others could stay in the Silverado for an unconference. I was eager to try out some of the general presentations I had prepared, but... the only people who stayed were three people from Microsoft, two lawyers from Sony, and one person from Olliance. I was a tad disappointed that I didn't get the opportunity to present anything, but I had an interesting discussion with the Microsoft people about Electronic Healthcare Records, life in Seattle, and... food When they left, I joined the Sony lawyers and the Olliance guy and we discussed the implications of compiling and linking on software licenses, languages, and... food.
My wife took my place on the wine-tasting tour:
In the evening, we had a great reception, and an even greater dinner (but the battery of my smartphone died so I only have a shady photo of the dinner):
I'll go home from the Open Source Think Tank with more questions than answers. It's not what I expected, but it isn't a bad thing. I realize that I don't understand plenty of things I've never questionned before. The least I can say, is that OSTT has been a great learning experience. I'd like to participate to the next Think Tank in Europe, but I fear it will overlap with the film festival, so I'll probably have to skip an edition.
