About the same time that Tristan was at the OpenWeb conference in Dublin, Ireland, I was also in Dublin, for a slightly different reason.
The record heavy rain complicated logistics a bit, but it was great to meet with people at Dublin City University and also Dublin Institute of Technology about opportunities in open source projects. There was lots of curiosity and interest about Mozilla, the work that goes into Firefox and even the very idea of working at a company that was all about open source. The impromptu corridor discussions about increasing involving open source were exciting. It was a jam-packed day, but I was really grateful it all came together.
