Folks, Monday night in Tokyo was pretty amazing, I found a ton of parity between NYC*BUG and the FreeBSD
Benkyokai Group. Amazing hospitality, everyone was extremely warm and engaging. Some FreeBSD and
NetBSD committers were in attendance, and when I asked for a show of hands, about half the room used OpenBSD too.
I presented an updated version of my last pfSense talk (NYC*BUG 2010), and gave update status on the
Japanese UI translation project, (which is 80% complete, thanks to one serious volunteer...) Then, I
*totally butchered* George's 10 years of NYC*BUG talk, cramming it into 10 minutes. Also brought in some
ALIX boards loaded for live demos, and for people to mess around with- the boards were extremely popular...
I posted my slides and notes online here:
90 minutes later, nobody was asleep :) It was an excellent crowd, and a really good time. Drinks and yakitori followed.
There are small *BSD groups meeting like this ALL OVER JAPAN! Seriously. It's intense. See y'all stateside soon!
