People person, technology enthusiast and all-things-open evangelist. I have managed and marketed communities for over a decade, getting started in the KDE community, followed by working as openSUSE Community Manager at SUSE and now managing community matters at ownCloud. I'm busy growing the ownCloud community, speaking at and organizing conferences and writing about my passions ranging from psychology and people in communities to innovative technology. I take care of my dog together with my wife in beautiful Berlin and you can find me also on Twitter and Diaspora!

oSC14 awesomeness

The openSUSE Conference this year was great fun. The event didn't attract as many people as in the last years, probably due to both date/location as well as some recent mixups. But there were still great talks (see the videos on youtube) and next year, oSC15 in Den Hague should benefit both from being easier to reach and the clean up of the controversy in the community. I'm trying to finish a openSUSE news story about the event, but for now, the articles already published, the videos of the talks as well as my impression below should keep you busy!

Meanwhile, I'm preparing for LinuxTag. Remember, I asked for help? More onwClouders and Gearheads still very much welcome. Looks like the Geekos came through already :D
