A fair few folk, and myself also.

IBM put on a very good display. Flightgear probably stole the show with 
the helicopter from a museum in which to try out their sim. Some good 
talks there also.

And then there was the ".org" village down in the basement. Some of the 
'exhibitors' were talkative enough. There were also some rather 
unapproachable geekie types... Often, (there and elsewhere) there was no 
clear indication as to what was actually being shown off or demonstrated.

Later, fun sort of party at Paul Sladen's place. The party (beer) turned 
more into a wireless LAN party!

Anyone else comment on the event and the other parties?

Good fun, and a good excuse to visit London!
