Hey #fosdem livestream team, all mics are left open after the talks. It feels a bit odd being able to listen in on private conversations once q&a finished.
What I like about it mostly is the mundane way the writer goes about with high tech, managing to introduce complex ideas in a rather 'obvious' and humane fashion.
