Goodbye MandelieuThis week I was attending the W3C Technical Plenary in the south of France. I’ve been traveling together with Lee from IBM and we have done a great job of balancing our time between the conference and enjoying the excellent weather, cuisine and scenery. I had promised to many of close friends that I’d blog everyday, but unfortunately I did not find the time, sad but true. We did a lot of bit of everything, such as driving along the coast from Nice to the border with Italy, couple of ancient (according to my standards) cities on a hill, skiing on the Alpes-Maritimes, and last but not least, had the most wonderful food. Hopefully, I’ll find the time to blog in more details later and of course, post many of the hundreds of pictures I have taken of our voyage. Most importantly, we were able to meet many new friends (and Semantic Web colleagues) that we only knew through weekly teleconferences, foaf files, blogs, forums, IRC chats, etc. One of the most anticipated meetings was Danny. I had just gotten back from skiing and the reception was going full force when we ran into him after just a few glasses of wines. Obviously, he wouldn’t recognize the face, but after I said torrez.us, he just went crazy, plenty more about Danny on future posts. Anyways, I really enjoyed hanging out with him a couple of nights and throughout the conference and so many others I can’t mention because I’m on my way out. Alejandra and the kids will be in Florida through Thursday and since my IBM leadership conference in Reno has been postponed, I decided to part from Lee and go visit Barcelona for a few days with Mamina and Ania and friends. Adios!
