Where's the picture of our fearless editor?
A Beijing moment

Be advised, though, that your editor has taken great pains to never wear a necktie over his nearly three decades in the technical field. A winning streak that long is not easily abandoned, and it has not happened here.

Thanks for giving the chance to have a picture with your editor yesterday morning. :_) Even
without necktie you are one of the coolest guy in the symposium here~~
A Beijing moment: Our favorite editor at the BoF session

Here is a picture of our favorite editor at the BoF session on the 2nd day (February 20, 2008) of the 2008 Linux Developer Symposium (Linux 开发者研讨会).
And here are some more photos from the 2008 Linux Developer Symposium taken by my colleague, a fellow Beijing LUG member, and me. These photos are uncensored and uncut, a straight dump from my xD card. So, I apologize in advance if there is any bad shots or whatnot. :-)
There are a lot more photos (like over 3000?) photos taken over the entire events by fellow Beijing GNU/Linux User Group members alone, so I'm sure more and more pictures will surface soon. :-)
I thoroughly enjoyed the event, especially the precious chance to meet and chat and dine with these great individuals of the Linux community. Hope you enjoy Beijing, and hope to see you again soon!

Over three *thousand*?
Did you have time to eat or sleep? (What am I saying, this is a Linux
conference. So no sleep then, but hopefully at least you got a chance to
talk to people in between wielding the camera!)

No, I didn't take the 3000 photos. Perhaps I was unclear: I did not take that many photos
personally. I think I had about 250 photos, but only 100 of which are taken by me personally.
The pictures before noon on the first day were taken by my colleague Steven Sun; and some of
the after-dinner shots were taken by Ollo. :-)
Beijing LUG has assigned e.g. Ollo to be the photographer for the event, so he has taken a lot
of pictures (including multiple-shots which are 0.5 second apart to capture the best
expressions etc. I think), especially during speeches, round-table meeting, BoFs, etc. So
yeah, it is either 3000 photos over the two-day event, or something like 15 GB of photos.
Ollo did find the time to eat and mingle, especially in the evening. But yes, he has been
really great! I think he covered just about everybody and everything.

Seems you've been outed. But I don't see the Mickey Mouse ears or Groucho glasses. Did he
edit those away, Soviet-style?
A Beijing moment - looks more like a black T-shirt.

Now the real question, how low did does one need to go to create such a bogus creation, i.e.
was it done with Gimp or was it Photoshopped? The shame ...
