LCA2007 Day 2.

Well, thats day 2 of LCA over with.

I was running a little late this morning and managed to miss the first 20 minutes or so of Chris Blizzard's keynote. Chris spoke about Mozilla and the One Laptop Per Child project. Inspiring stuff.

The most interesting talks I attended today were Jono Bacon's "Jokosher : The Gnome Approach to audio production", Chris McCormick's "Love and Algorithmically Generated Content" and Andrew Cowie's talk about the GTK and Gnome bindings for Java.

The day ended with a Google bash at the Roundhouse with beer, hotdogs and the band Deprogram. On stage, Deprogram use a laptop running Linux and the GPLed Ardour digital audio workstation software as well as Linux software synthesizers and LADSPA plugins. They didn't really get the audience reaction they deserved, but played a damn fine set anyway.
