Travelogue Available of International Free Software Forum (FISL), Brazil

As I noted earlier, I spoke at the “6th International Free Software Forum” / Fórum Internacional Software Livre (FISL). The conference was 1-4 June, 2005.

I’ve just posted my travelogue of the 6th International Free Software Forum in Porto Alegre, Brazil. If you didn’t get to go, this may give you an idea what it was like. I also try to make some observations along the way, which hopefully you’ll find interesting. For example, I comment about Brazil’s relationship with open source software / Free software (OSS/FS), which I found very interesting. I also try to explain how I ended up helping to document the complicated inter-relationships between some of the many OSS/FS Java projects.
