    Looking trough these pictures I cannot but come to the harsh conclusion that Debian development is a male-dominated world. Look at

    http://www.ucc.gu.uwa.edu.au/~james/2001/conf-1.deb/5th-day/preview-114-1434_IMG.JPG.html

    for example. It's like a "Where's Waldo's girlfriend" picture.

    Seriously, why are there so little women working at these projects? I don't think that it has anything to do with the abilities of women. Maybe it's because so much development is done in spare/free time and women generally like the idea of spending their free time behind a computer less than men.

    OK, so who is Marcus Brinkmann? One of the HURD-teeshirt-wearing guys, I guess?

    Oh and how did James make those mega-wide jpgs (e.g. lsm-plenary..jpg)

    Marcus is wearing a Hurd T-shirt: in the middle, the Hurd on the right. Neal is in the Hurd T-shirt on the left.

    The stitched images were made, unfortunately, with non-free software that shipped with the camera. The Canon Powershow S10 camera works very well with a small utility called s10sh, the URL for which I cannot remember at this point in time.

    Check out more pictures on the LSM site at lsm.abul.org/cam/photos.php3.

    Thanks James.

    Re: stitched image program being non-free: shame.
